Window Repair

I love the vintage, original windows on our house. 



When Bean accidentally broke one a while ago, I knew  it meant a DIY project to get it fixed. 



Getting the glass out turned out to be the hardest part.



Also, I had to scrape away all the old glazing and remove the old glazing points. Some of it was rock-hard, and difficult to chip out. 



Finally, the frame was clean and ready to receive the new glass. Hubby had ordered it earlier from a local glass shop. 



I had to ask for his help inserting the new glazing points, since I couldn't push them into the wood. 



But I was all over the glazing compound!





Now it needs to cure for a week. Then we can re-paint and reinstall the window.
