Slowvelder improves her DIY skills

The problem:  One broken window pane

Step 1:  Remove old putty and broken glass

Step 2:  Put in glass and new putty

I know you are supposed to make long sausages with the putty and then push it in but it wouldn’t work that way, so I improvised.

Step 3:   Remove excess putty and neaten edges

All done – I will paint it when I paint the window frames.

Looks simple doesn’t it?  Well…….

War wounds: Elbow


Blood, sweat and tears !

But I did it!

  1. I’d imagine the first time is the hardest. Live and learn–even in DIY projects. With the next window, perhaps you won’t need to draw blood 😉


  2. Manuel – the Spanish Bandalero – would like to know whether you put some putty in underneath the glass ? With wooden windows – we prefer to run some silicone under the glass instead of putty. If you like – Manuel can come and visit and teach you how to do a whole lot of things. Give him a room, place to walk and he is at your command !


    • Yep – I did put little worms of putty on the other side too – arent you proud of me? You and the Spanish Bandalero are welcome to come visit anytime – it would be great!
