A good friend of ours is remodeling an older home with divided light wood windows and she was asking about how to paint them since they’re in need of touch up, and what window treatments I’d suggest since they looked a little plain in her eyes. One of the options I suggested was to paint the mullions and interior grid a color other than white and consider skipping the window treatments since privacy isn’t an issue.
All of the divided light windows in our own home have those white metal strips layered in between two panes so for me it’s not an option to paint them and I’m stuck with white – not that there’s anything wrong with that :) – but here’s a peek at a few ideas I’m sending her way:
Someday if I ever build or buy another house, painting the mullions and trim a fresh color or dramatic black is a detail I wouldn’t hesitate to incorporate – until then just I’ll live vicariously through my friend’s remodeling adventures. It’s a gorgeous detail, right?
