Or maybe I will.
This is how I paint our divided light windows:
Like a mess.
And not just because I am messy, but because it is the easiest way. Having now painted quite a few of our windows, I realized that trying to not get paint on the glass by being extra careful is futile. Taping is even worse because you spend all that time taping and then, because these windows were built by hand in 1920 and are imperfect, you still get paint on the glass.
So this is my method. I paint away messily. Then I brake out my handy scraper and scrape away. (Believe it or not, getting more paint on the glass makes it easier.) It works better when it is cold outside and not too moist. Both of which it is today. So why can't I bring myself to start scraping?
Me and this little scraper guy.
About to become BFFs.
Wish my sanity luck.
The only saving grace is I think I'm going to upgrade to Window 7 from XP tonight which will require a lot of waiting around in the office. Anyone on Windows 7? Like it? We actually had to BUY a legit copy which about killed me.
