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.

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.

Fall has by far always been my favorite season.  The change in the weather, the crispness in the air, the holidays on the horizon, I love it all.  Fall has such an energetic vibe of newness and change.

You're probably spending a lot more time at home lately.  Your home or apartment might be doubling as your office, classroom, playroom, gym and more. Those walls might be starting to majorly close in, I know mine are!  After living in our home for over two years, I still feel like I haven't unpacked.  Half of my clothes and shoes are still in the garage, my drawers have been bursting at the seams, and our closets are so tiny I can't make of sense of where to put anything.  So add all of that added chaos on top of clutter and disorganization, and that's a recipe for some major stress.
I decided to start with decluttering and organizing my drawers.

11:11.  So what does it mean anyway?  Well, for what seems like forever now, I've been seeing 11:11 pretty much on every day.  And yes, I've known that it's a good omen and that if you see it, it’s a sign from the Universe that you’re on the right path.  So, naturally, I became obsessed.  However, I never knew all of the magical hidden meanings behind this auspicious number.
