Wow, those are neat pieces. Wish I could say "paint", but the bottom one is just perfect to mosaic. I see the whole frame in mosaic. It would be gorgeous.

The more gothic one needs stained glass. Something that would keep that medieval feel. Lucky you to find that.

Love those!! How lucky are you! The bottom one is screaming sun so I think you are going to have to mosaic that one. I was thinking a pastoral church scene painted on that top one but I like Luvs suggestion of stained glass. Please share whatever you do with them! ~Anj

The brown thingy: ditch the brown and paint it some Art Deco style pastel. Then use repetetive geometry to make it more Art Deco.

The other thingy--where do you plan to put it? Stained glass, ja ja, but I'd keep it plain. Like one pink panel, one perwinkel panel, one lemon yellow panel, one minty green, or whatever...

Good luck. You found some fun stuff!
