Completing Repair to Wooden Window Frame

Two days ago I showed you how I went about using Elmer’s Carpenter’s Wood Filler product to fill the holes in one of our bedroom’s window frames.

These holes were caused by removing the screws from a pair of anchor or mounting brackets for  window coverings as I installed new window coverings with the brackets installed in a different position.

The picture below shows the condition for one area of the upper vertical portion of the window frame for one of the bedroom windows after I had applied the wood filler product.

So, the next step was to wait 15 minutes before I sanded the now filled holes followed by waiting 2 hours before I used water based paint to repaint this portion of the wooden window frame.

Well, not being one to want to go back and forth two different times to the same work area, I simply waited the full 2 hours before sanding and repainting.

As with any home renovation or home maintenance task, using the right tools makes all the difference. So for this I used a small brush to apply the small amount of paint I had placed in a small plastic container from the much larger paint can.

As you can see from these pictures of the full upper vertical portions of the wooden window frames for the two bedroom windows, you can’t even see either the screw holes which were filled with the wood filler or where the blue paint from the wall had splashed over onto the while paint.

The directions on the paint can said I could repaint in 2 hours. Each type of paint is different so make sure you check your own paint can’s label for your own wait time.

As these pictures show with or without the window coverings installed, what is a very simple, easy and cheap home maintenance task can make a lot of difference in the appearance of the finished product.

So, this time of the year if you take some time off and find yourself at home with time on your hands why not look for simple, easy and cheap tasks which can add a lot to the appearance of your home in any room in your home.
