Should I repaint; re-glaze window frame?
I have stripped the paint off an old, 9-pane window frame that's about 3' x 3'. I plan to hang it outside, against a wall of my house, right above a chest of drawers that I use to store garden supplies. Just a little of the old original green paint still stains the window frame, the rest is bare wood. I like the old, exposed wood look.
My questions are: Should I re-glaze the glass panes? (Squeeze the putty-like, white goo that seals the glass to the wood muntins) If I don't, the new glazing pins are visible.
Should I paint the window with primer, an undercoat, and then top coat and faux finish the frame to look old?
Should I just paint clear coat of something over the wood?
I live in California, so it will be exposed to limited moisture and some sun where it will hang.
