You Know You Are Getting Old When…

9 08 2009

Jessica called me out. Getting excited about installing new windows in your house classifies one as old. Call it “settling down,” or whatever, but the idea of the below being your idea of a full weekend of fun instead of a weekend of traveling with friends to camp all weekend at a music festival, pushing the limits until Sunday night….well…this is it kids:

Windows Stained 001

supplies and general messiness

That’s right. We’re pushing the limits all right. Adding the next coat of teak oil to those windows until ONE AM on a Sunday night. Staining windows with a Q-tip kind of fun!

Windows Stained 006

happy cott loves the detail work

I feel so wild and crazy. Actually. I feel nice and cool with the cross breeze. It’s nice to be able to open windows! Here are a couple of the work-in-progress project.

living room corner with a picture window and double casement

If all goes well, we should have the windows 100% complete by Tuesday morning, allowing us to get a start on fixing the drywall that was broken in the process. Like I said… We are crazy!
