Window Putty

After work in the evenings, Jason has been going under the house to work on the new (but old) casement windows for our bedroom. He is way more motivated than me!

The window putty had deteriorated and was crumbling away on the exterior facing side. It was a very easy fix though. Jason scraped the old loose stuff out and then smoothed some new window putty around the edges to seal in the glass. Very simple.

He also used the heat gun to scrape off the worst of the thick gunky paint before he starts sanding them. When they are cleaned up and painted, they will look really good.


  1. That is one clever husband! How lucky you are to have a handyman around the house.

    Had to tell you, my (non-handyman) hubby came home with 2 more shirts! Unbelievable! Apparently they are on sale at Myer.

    Have a great weekend-keep that whip out!

    Best wishes always,

  2. They are going to look magnificent!
    PS I've passed on an award to you but please don't feel obliged to follow through. It's entirely up to you.

  3. Hi, I found your blog via 'Life at number 10'. Congratulations on your award! You are so fortunate to have such a motivated hubby! I am really looking forward to seeing more of your renovations. Your kitchen looks so much better and I love your bifold doors! Hve a great weekend! xx

  4. Hey Anita, Can't wait to see them up...think of all the shirts Jason can buy with the money he is saving doing all that work himself...haha, hope you have a lovely weekend, cheers Katherine

  5. Hi, these will look great when they are done. I keep looking at all the window putty around my house that is dropping off and think I must do something about it at some point!
    Have a great weekend!

  6. i have my son to help with reno projects, when hes home ...
    but he is a huge help when i need him.
    good work on the windows

  7. It's nice to have a clever, hard-working hubby, isn't it? Nice find on those windows. They must have been meant for you.

  8. I had to do that to our windows and it was a miserable job. It was so hard and stuck I broke a few panes...maybe your man is more patient. LOL
