Swimming on the windowsill

Window sill in need of some paint
The first thing I did when I moved into this house was to paint all the window sills.  However our brutal sun ages paint quickly, especially parts exposed to the western sunshine and in six short years the western windowsills have lost much of their original paintwork.

Today I began the repainting job. If I had realised what difference it makes to the feel of the rooms I might have repainted earlier (or maybe not). This has been an unplanned but rewarding Easter Friday project.

I've been trying to persuade J to re-do our bedroom window sill for the very same reason to no avail until I showed him your post. There I said, look at this result - so good it is a fitting background for a work of art!
