Bathroom Window - Putty

Thought I'd try to document the steps and time for each individual step of restoring windows. 10 days until baby's due date, zero chance I'll meet that deadline. 

Removing putty - key is letting the windows steam for 2 to 2 1/2 hours. Old putty should just slide out right out once its nice and soft, out back in if it's chalky. 

If your putting in a lot of elbow grease your liable to scratch the glass too. 

Total time = 1 hour of work time

Steam really lifts the paint, I prefer to not scrape it since the steam makes the wood susceptible to tearing
