Found: Lead Paint

I figured I'd just prime and paint the living room window frame when I was redoing the kitchen cabinets: A fine example of home renovator's While We're At It Syndrome. First, though, there was some peeling paint, so I pulled out the ol' paint stripper and rubber gloves and got to work. The paint beneath the layers of white was strangely crumbly in gorgeous layers of peacock blue and jade.
So while we were at it we had to pry the window frame out of the stone wall... which cracked the plaster in the living room.
The upside? I don't think it's going to freeze again since this last cold weather, and I passionately love the raw stone underneath.
