help with window stool


I recently decided to strip some wood paneling out of a bedroom and skimcoat the walls not realizing I was going to have to remove the window casing. Unfortunatly when I removed the window casing the stool or sill snapped right in half. The windows are replacement windows. If anyone has any ideas I would appreciate it big time.Is there any way to remove the whole stool with out removing the window? I was going to try and drill pilot holes and nail it back on.

help with window stool


just use glue and trim head screws to fix it. Patch the seam and cover the screw heads with putty, sand smooth, prime and paint.

...or, don't hack it together. Rip out the rest of it and pick up a piece of stool board from HD or wherever for like $2. The replacement window only sits against it, not on it, so it doesnt need to come out.
