The window frames

The window frames had this very ornate frames. The subdivision is famous for the houses with all these custom additions.

Those frames bothered me already when I saw them for the first time on the real estate listing. Since I have not seen them in person yet (my husband checked out the house and I agreed via Skype) I was not sure how easy (as in cheap) it would be to change them. I was afraid of the domino effect during the renovation process. One thing leads to the other and the next and the next and then even more…- all cost related, of course!

We opted to tweak the windows a little to make them more sleek, more clean lined. And of course changed the color. In this picture there is still a little something missing in the middle part, but you get the idea…
