Finished #44 and 45 today.

Here's what they looked liked but they were boarded up









These windows are visible to people passing by so I also made some curtains so they won't look in. Joann fabrics had canvas on sale 60" wide and $5.99 a yard. I cut them to the size and hemmed the edges and installed some grommets. The ran a wire rope between screw eyes with a turnbuckle for my rod. I probably have $12 in each curtain with the hardware.



The basement has so much more light now and the difference outside makes me want to do the other 6 on the other side of the house. Maybe this fall.

I finished up 46, 47 and 48 today.








So this it it for windows for a while. I'll be working on a small pavilion and the cedar shakes so I'll see how I end up later this summer and maybe I'll do a few more.

Persistent and Consistent. Two of the best qualities on any project, do-it-yourself OR professional.
