Painting Window Trim and Hanging Shutters

Painting Window Trim and Hanging ShuttersI’m giving you a peek of what I’ve been up too. If you missed the prior posts about shutter placement, shutter color, and trim color you can read them here and here. I’ve had my mom and step dad living with us for the last 3 weeks so when they go out to visit friends I sneak outside onto the ladder and get some painting and shutter hanging done. I don’t want to waste our visit time by painting so I’ve been picking away at it slowly over the last 3 weeks. I have 2 windows to paint today and then I can show you the reveal. 

Painting Window Trim and Hanging ShuttersI painted the trim to match the window casing and that color is Sherwin Williams Analytical Gray. After I did the first window I stepped back and said to myself, oh no was this a mistake, but I carried on and once I got the front of the house painted and the shutters up I fell in love with it.
