Today we are back talking about our windows. I know I hope one day soon be can be done with them too, I just keep telling myself how nice they will look when we are done. But last week I told you how we added window jamb extensions to our windows. Here is a picture to remind you.
Did you notice the plaster below the window sill? Or what about the plaster in this window?
I think we should maybe fix that, right? So before we added the window trim, I had to patch the plaster around the windows.
-Sheetrock All Purpose Joint Compound (Sheetrock Mud)
-6″ Taping Knife
I placed the Sheetrock mud on the hawk used the 6″ taping knife. I completed this for all the windows and let it dry for 24 hour. After that amount of time the windows looked like this.
See the crack? I then applied the mud one more time and again let it dry for 24 hours. You may have to apply another coat of mud to make the wall level, I did not worry too much because I am covering this part with wood.
After the Sheetrock had dried, I took a #400 sandpaper and sanded the area.
Now our windows are ready for the trim.
