Update Your Decor With Easy Paint Projects
Tips and tricks: A painted window frame can enhance a view and add character to a room. Consider choosing a color that complements the landscape outside, but make sure it doesn't contrast too much with the walls or steal the show from the scenery, advises Martin. "If you have too much contrast," he says, "you don't look out the window―you look at the window."
Best paint for the job: Semigloss paint is a good choice because it is resistant to fingerprints and whatever nature delivers through an open window, including rain and soot, says Schaefer.
