OLD WINDOW, NEW LOVE

July 17, 2020

 

I think the hardest thing for me to do when it comes to projects, is finish. I’m really good about starting a project full speed, and then I usually fizzle out towards the end. However, that ends now!
I’m finishing up the windows on our house finally, and I wanted to share with you how to refresh your own old windows in three quick and easy steps.

Our vintage bathroom window has been in need of some serious lovin’.

Step One: Repair

I tried my hand at reglazing, and after three broken window panes in the dining room, quickly said no thank you. I called a father and son duo that do this all day long, and what a good decision that was! They knocked it out so quickly.

After they finished the windows, and I let the glazing cure for a couple of months. Yes, a couple of months haha. You really have to give this stuff time!

I puttied over the old hardware holes. Please don’t judge my rusty putty knife:)

I love pink spackle, because it goes on pink, and turns white when dry, so it’s pretty much fool-proof.

Decisions… Deciding between White, Black or Brass Hardware. What do you think?

I love them all!

But I think I’m loving the Solid Brass.

No drilling required, just screw them in with a little pressure and a screwdriver.

With all these options, it was really hard to make a decision!

I ended up going with the Brass. We have a mix of Brass and Black fixtures and hardware in the bathroom, and brass just felt a little softer.

So that’s it! Three easy steps to refresh an old window: Repair, Paint, Hardware

Since having my son, Coyote almost two-and-a-half years ago, I’ve really struggled to feel like myself, both emotionally and physically. From a negative body image, to adrenal fatigue, to hormones feeling all out of whack.
