I am a girl who loves change and is constantly improving my surroundings. I love beautiful things and experiencing the satisfaction of creating something out of nothing. I watch all of Joanna’s (Gaines) shows, follow her and of course I have read her book. I feel a real soul connection with her and her simplicity and grounded values. So, you know a girl needs black windows! Quoting my eldest son, “The heart wants, what the heart wants”!
I’m pretty sure this idea came to me in my sleep. PAINT THEM! I thought about it for a while and by a while, I mean 2 days. I did it. What did I have to lose? I don’t really like to waste time. I had a client booked in for 10am and I had a whole hour to start with my back window. If I really screwed up I would just paint them white again.
I started off with a very tiny brush to fit into the small crevices and cracks. I gave the window and frame a quick cleaning and started. I used the Tremclad rust paint. I only bought the 237ml can and I still have ¼ of the can left. It is oil based but really dried to a nice matte finish. Click (here) for link. It took me 2 or 3 coates in some places but went pretty quickly. I also go back and use my white trim paint to cover up anything out of the lines. I used a razor blade to clean any mistakes I made on the window part, which gave me a perfect edge. I am in love with the look. Little things make me happy. I do, however, spend 10 plus hours a day in that room, so having it look the way I like makes me appreciate the beauty.
Thanks for visiting my first blog post. I hope you continue on my journey with me.
