Help my windowsills.
My front room has three windows that start about 8 inches off the floor, the perfect height for my beloved dogs to perch on, guard the house, and bark at every passing creature. Not surprisingly, in their enthusiasm, they have repeatedly ruined my paint job and even scratched into the wood. I like that they keep strangers away, but need to protect my window sills somehow. Is there anything I could put over the wood, or use instead of wood that they wouldn't damage? I have even thought about temporarily attaching a piece of carpet there, but something white and hard would be much more attractive. Thanks for your thoughts!
