Exterior view of door and windows

I had one of those very happy accidents with this part of the project. As I was using the ebony stain to color the flooring, trims, etc. I had a lot on my fingers since I forgot to wear rubber gloves during the process. Well, while handling these windows in order to get them ready to be glued into place, I accidentally got a smudge of ebony stain on them. It made them look dirty and I really liked it. So, I deliberately smudged some stain from my fingers on more of the window and door surfaces and was really tickled at the look I was getting. I had been wondering how I would achieve the look of age on the windows successfully and this happy little accident gave me exactly the look I wanted.
