The weather has been too hot, too rainy or too unpredictable for weeks, but finally today I put the first coat of linseed paint on the bay window that I stripped in April. It’s a big old thing. It took all day, a third of a tin of paint, and there were more than 50m of edges to cut in.
It’s looking pleasingly Gothic now and it finally matches the rest of the front.
I found a photo from August 2013. I like it better now.
