Here are photos of the living room window repair that we did September-October 2005.  Moisture had gotten trapped between the huge storm window and the leaded glass window and had rotted out small portions of the sill.  Took down the storm window, patched the sill, reglazed the leaded glass window, and primed and painted the sill and jamb.  We decided on a shade of forest green.  (We had found a tiny sample of a lighter green as a first coat at the top of the jamb.)  Step one in the decision of what colors to paint the house.
