Serious Cover-Up

I had a housemate move out fairly recently, and the holes left in the walls by nails used to hang up various artwork had to be spackled over. That was easy. Unfortunately, it also meant playing touch-up, and matching the paint turned out to be –something of a challenge.

A few days ago another housemate — Jason, earlier identified as the gardening miracle-worker who sneakily and efficiently cleaned out my front flower beds — decided to paint the room, and found the paint used originally for the walls. Funny thing about that, though! The paint on the walls had faded in the sunlight, so the paint in the can no longer matched. Fortunately, we have enough to repaint the entire room, so it’s going to look great again in no time at all — and while we’re at it we’ll touch up the bathroom walls where an a/c drainage pan overflow in the attic flooded down and damaged some walls and ceilings.

Of course, we still have to repair the frame of the oak bed I put in the bedroom after it was vacated. Sections of the rails that support the slats are broken, and need to be replaced, but that shouldn’t take long.

Now if I could just figure out how to repair a double-pane window myself, I’d be SOLID!!! Any hints that don’t require expertise as a glazier?
