Window Salvage

I painted salvaged pieces of trim, pallet boards, bulletin board frames (I take off and save the thin wood frames from garage sale bulletin boards to use the cork) and beadboard and then added them to an old window sash.  Because I only had very skinny pieces of interior window trim or sash to attach the painted wood to and only shorter pieces of wood I was "forced" to come up with this idea to use the wood in 2 different directions.  The problem resulted in a fun, almost quilt like pattern.
