Right after we started scraping off the old paint. At some point around 2005 I had some waterproofing spray I was trying to use up, which I sprayed on the paint here to make it last longer. It turned it yellow, haha. Not the right way to do things. So good to get this repainted anyway.

This window is barely even a real window! The inner window is a low-grade single-pane aluminum window, bit the outer pane is just a sheet of plastic screwed into the wooden window pane!. Not airtight! Not a window! Not glass! No R-Value! Not anything! I had sprayed Great Stuff in there years ago. Looks like ass but probably helped with the seal a bit.

We’re waiting for the sill on this window to finish rotting out. This window is one of the top 2 windows in the house up for future replacement. Always has been. It’s rotting on the inside too — often times during a shower some window will will fall into the water. There’s an exposed nail inside. It’s the worst condition window in the house. But of course, the longer we wait to replace it, the less money we have to spend right now 🙂

When I painted it, I actually painted margin around the edge of the plastic itself so as to obscure the ugly Great Stuff.

BACKSTORY: So our homeowners insurance (Farmers) got dropped due to having peeling paint on our window sills (among other things). Weak. It was a LOT of work AND money for us to repaint all our sills. Wood windows SUCK!! Modern vinyl windows are MAINTANENCE-FREE!! Wood windows… You gotta re-glaze the panes when they fall out, and then the wood itself is always going to slowly rot away. We already had our cats knock a pane out, so we already had glazing compound for pane repairs. This came in handy when we painted our various window sills, as some also needed glazing compound.

It was quite a pain, because it cost so much money and had our living room in disarray for so many months, and the whole insurance basis for the situation was pretty bullshitty in the first place. We’re not going to make a property damage claim due to moisture that occurs because our paint was peeling! Ridiculous…
