I painted the trim of the windows white. I'm not going to paint the actual windows. First of all, it's freezing out and I'd need to open the windows to paint them. Second, it's just easier if I don't paint them, know what I mean?. And I like how they look this way.
I painted the fireplace white also, and stained the base a darker color. I used Glidden Semi Gloss paint for the window trim and fireplace.
I first sanded them, then applied Zinsser primer, then a couple coats of paint. TIP-Always make sure to read the paint can and wait the recommended time before doing a second coat. If you don't, you will seal the first coat with the second coat and you'll be left with a very sticky surface.
I painted the wall a blue gray color called winter sky gray. And surprise! On the left you'll see my dog doing what he does best.
