Just back from seeing family in Quebec, which gave me a little break from all those shutters and windows. I'm pleased to report that I'm done painting six pairs of shutters and have repaired and painted six window frames. I still have to strip the hardware to be able to put the shutters back into place though. Here are a few shots showing the re-glazing of the window. My nails are long gone, but the big ring is still there.
Here are before and after shots of two of the windows, repaired and painted, waiting for their respective shutters. Previously, the two colours on the window frame gave the impression of thinness or flimsiness around the glass. I thought using one colour on the frame gave more weight to the window, better suited to the size of the house.
