OLD WINDOW, NEW LOVE
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.
Step Two: Paint
Step Three: Hardware
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.
And finished! What do you think?
So that’s it! Three easy steps to refresh an old window: Repair, Paint, Hardware
There’s really nothing a little paint, putty and new hardware can’t fix.
