a little paint touch up
This week, Reid and I scraped, primed and painted the stone ledge below the 2nd floor windows. We can reach this area by leaning out the windows, so we didn't worry about finishing it when we had the lift last fall. I also wood puttied the round detail trim piece around the windows, as exposure to the elements has caused some rot. Recreating these round trim pieces doesn't seem particularly easy, so we thought we better putty and paint them before they rot away. Reid is excited to have the ledge painted as he intends to run some temporary electricity along the ledge for uplighting the building. This will add some light to the street at night, improving safety and showing off our paint job!
