The windows in the unused back room have been repaired and repainted. I decided to paint the sashes black (BM Toucan Black) in this room, as the floors will eventually be painted white.
(I feel the need to note that what might look like a sloppy paint job on the sash is actually someone elses sloppy old paint job on the outside of the sash showing through the glass and giving my paint job a bad name. Someday we will have the woodwork on the outside of the house scraped and repainted by someone with scaffolding, but that day is not coming in the near future. Alas.)
Also, remember that $25 Danish sofa I rescued a year ago, with thoughts of refinishing the wood and having it reupholstered? Yeah, it’s still sitting there, doing nothing. Eventually it will be moved down to the basement, where it will sit and sit and sit while I try to wade my way through the list of projects I have lined up to carry me through retirement and into old age. Hey, you have to keep those aging brains active! I think of things like the sofa and the back room as being a sort of health insurance.
