Progress on the Window/Wall/Shelves

Not sure how to title this exactly. This is where a doorway once was. It's now recessed shelves for my vintage spice tin collection, and a transom window to let light through to the living room.
It's looking better and better!
After I saw the window in there, I thought I should have stained that wood green instead of red. Coulda, shoulda, woulda, ya know?
Jay scraped and sanded the window frame, but I don't think I'm going to paint it/ It's really cool, with old crazed paint. Yeah, I'm crazy like that.

Always knew you were a little crazy. Just glad you figured it out. HA!
Looking great--tell Jay I'm looking for someone to hire. Is he available??

Nah, you didn't want to stain the shelves green - it would look too 'Christmasy'.

Looks wonderful! You're making progress.
