I have around 5 very old wooden windows all around the basement level of my parent's house. The paint on the frame is starting to peel off and the sealant caulk between the glass and the frame can also be removed easily with the putty knife. There are no visible holes in the wood. I was wondering what is the best way to restore them?
I have zinsser 123 primer, circa 1850 furniture stripper, and 60 grit sand paper
Should I strip the paint that is not firmly attached to the frame using sand paper, prime it and paint it? Or should i strip all the old paint using the circa 1850 furniture stripper?
I have also read about wood hardeners do you think I should use this?
