Chateau: painted found objects and canvas

I found these cardboard packing sheets in my office building, where a crew was replacing all the old fluorescent bulbs with new energy efficient bulbs. The new bulbs came packed in these 1" deep, textured cardboard dividers. I was attracted to their architectural elements and thought at first of cathedral doors/windows. That may be project #2. But for now, I see a tall, thin chateau in rural France. What do you see?
