Old Window Wall Art

My parents live in an old house that is over 100 years old. Gradually over the last few years they've been replacing some of the old windows. The last time I was there they had just replaced this old window.
I removed any hardware and sanded it down.

First I painted it brown for a base, then a burgundy wine color over the top.

I lightly sanded and distressed the window so you could see the brown or wood underneath the burgundy color. I cleaned up the hardware that I wanted back on and replaced it. I also add some hangers to the back so I could put it on the wall.

Tie on hooks with twine, add photos and voila! - it's done.

Some of my inspirations:
