Today seemed to go a bit slower than yesterday. This was filled with scraping and sanding the muntins (the wood strips between the panes of glass) for a couple of hours and that kind of work goes unnoticed. A thankless task, really, but it’s got to get done.
Much of the doors and windows installed in this arcade are pieces found at Habitat for Humanity. These old piece do add charm and yet, there always seems to be a bit of fix-up that is still needed to protect the integrity of the piece itself.
For instance, on the outside of this grid window, I will be replacing the old glaze in 4 of the top window panes because it appears they could blow out with a small breeze. Ack!
From the inside, I’ve been able to apply a couple of coats of paint to the window grid, door, and 2 large windows off to the left. Yay! It’s getting personality!!
Now that my body is killing me, it’s time to kick my feet up and review the shopping list for IKEA tomorrow! Now, where’s my wine?
Until the next update,
