The first step to painting the window trim was the primer. We used KILZ Premium and yes that is a 5 gallon bucket (I have other plans for this primer).
First, I took my paintbrush and cut-in around the window and painted over the knots in the wood.
Then I used the foam roller, this is one of my new favorite painting tools because it gives you a very smooth finish. But I will give you tips on how to use a foam roller in the future.
After letting the primer dry for 1 hour, I applied a second coat. Can you see the difference between the one and two coats? Top & left trim pieces have two coats.
Lets take a closer look…
After the primer dried, (I let it sit overnight because I was tired of painting for the day) it was time for paint. I used BEHR Ultra Plus in Ultra Pure White. This is so far my favorite paint I have used to date.
Here is a picture with the difference between the paint and primer, I have cut-in along the window with paint.
Our house has been in a mess for this whole project and I cannot wait to get things back together.
And now our window trim is all painted!!!
Now I just need to touch up the paint around the windows then I can finally check this off our list. Anyone else DIYing their windows?
