We have been working hard on getting the outside of our house looking a bit better. It has been a long time since we have painted the trim and it was peeling off. Plus I was ready for a change. The trim has been red for 10 years! I painted one window last year to test the brown color and see if we liked it. After living with it for awhile we decided to paint all the trim this dark brown. We also recently got a new roof! The trim was painted and we had a new roof and all of a sudden it was painfully obvious that our shutters and window boxes needed a refresh.
We have wanted to build another window box so the house was more balanced. I built the first one forever ago out of 1×6 boards and some trim. Shane built the second one while I was sick in bed with pneumonia last week. Now that I am feeling better, I was ready to paint them a fun new color! Bye, bye brown and hello BLUE!
Painting anything with trim is a pain with a brush. The first time I painted the first window box I tried it with a brush and it took forever! Spraying is the only way to go! I love my small and mighty Finish Max!
To secure the boxes to the window area, I use these hooks and eyes.
I am so happy with how the blue window boxes look all filed with flowers!
Our little cottage looks all dressed up for summer. I just need to get some planters on the porch and we are good to go. Better late than never :)
