Now clearly I’m not suggesting you do this this week but in normal weather conditions painting your window frames is a small job that may not even require a ladder. It is also, as I mentioned in Monday’s post a really effective way to bring a room together and even add a dramatic element.
I have mostly painted my window frames to match the walls but if you have pale walls then a contrasting colour such as green, will bring the outside in, or yellow will add drop of sunshine to a winter’s day (clearly not the issue in the UK at the moment).
As ever, for this DIY series I have enlisted the help of the experts and today it’s Bianca Hall, of French for Pineapple, who, while she professes to hate painting windows, does it a lot and it always looks great.
You will find her instructions and a list of tools in the link here. I suggest you bookmark it for later and don’t forget to share the results with us both.
The images are, as always, for your inspiration. If your windows are not wooden but uPVC they are still very paintable as long as you prime them first. Here is a reel Sophie made of painting her white plastic windows.
