Let’s talk trim. Baseboards! Windows! Room transitions and plinths and headers! It’s no secret that trim work is my least favorite task around this house, but Scott actually claims to enjoy it (wha?), and so we motor through the job – together. He pulls up the old, I paint the new, he cuts, he nails, I spackle, I caulk. (At this point, I could caulk a whole house together with my eyes closed; not an exposed seam in sight!)
Over the last few weeks, we’ve been in (constant!) trim mode around the bed, bath and laundry rooms, but our largest task to date? Those bedroom windows! Man, do we love them, and to show our appreciation, we trimmed those guys for days and days and days. (Okay, 3 days all said and done.)
Together, they’re over 10′ wide, and I insisted on three totally separate windowpanes so we could mimic the look of super hunky, super handsome trim. We’re so happy we chose three over one, and it was worth every hour of wood chopping, spackling, sanding and caulking. We’re sharing the entire DIY – from the first step you never skip to how we build them up – on the Bali Blinds blog today. We encourage you to check it out!
