I hope all our friends and followers are having a nice holiday season. We're having a pretty quiet month so far. For the first time in over a decade, I actually managed to put up a little six-foot tree. We don't really celebrate the holiday anymore, but I do enjoy the colorful lights to brighten up our gray weather.
I removed the glass that was cracked and decided to strip some paint for repainting. When I did that, I realized one of the windows was pretty rotten and so I had to try and fix it up some.
wood rot repair kit to try and fix this. It was difficult to work with and I didn't manage to get it very smooth, but luckily once it was dry, I could sand it down. I had hoped to rebuild some of the missing wood, but I could do little more than fill the rotted areas.
DAP glazing compound that comes in the tub. It has more of a clay consistency and works much better for my beginning skill level.
Of course, I had to scrape out the earlier attempt. It was a lot easier than the original ancient stuff, but it still took a couple of hours to remove it. I should have removed it much sooner, before it had time to set.
I've done one window so far. My glazing is far from professional, but it definitely looks better than the first try. And honestly, I am ready for this project to be done so we can get these windows back in the shed since it's raining outside.
Be safe and have a good holiday everyone!
