We started with the trickiest of the windows - the second story window in the stairwell. Scraping and prepping this window involved maneuvering a tall ladder on angled stairs and then crossing my fingers and hoping the neither the ladder nor I would slip. I hate ladders, but S claims his hand isn't steady enough to paint trim. I paint, S scrapes.
On other windows we just needed to scrape a little bit of flaking paint and then smooth the rough areas with some wood filler.
The bathroom had something really funky going on under the windowsill where the wood meets the tile. Someone had globed on caulk two inches down onto the tile and up around onto the wood sill. We were a little worried that we were opening a can of worms when S took a putty knife to it:
But the tiles underneath the globs of caulk were fine. Just a little caulk applied neatly and we'll be good to go.
