The progress on my living room and dining room windows has been going very slowly. This is partly because it is one of my least favorite tasks and partly because it creates so much to clean up from old flaking paint and sanding. All of this definitely reduces my enthusiasm!
If able to do this all over again, I would probably delay the floor restoration until after the windows had been completed. It really is best to work from the ceiling downward to the floor, although looking back, there were some places in the floor where you could fall through!
(This photograph was taken October 2015. There is still more work to do, but the way that the crisp white window casings stand out against the walls is very nice and will hopefully be a motivator.)
