Our New “Old House” Window Trim {and haven ticket giveaway winner!}



I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend!

We were on Spring Break last week, and I look forward to showing you some pictures of our “family-together-time.”


I wanted to quickly show you some work Cy has been doing in our addition.

In my “How to Add Old House Character & Charm to your Newer Home” series, I shared with you one way to add character to your home is through trim work.


We definitely wanted to add some old house character to our new addition, so we decided to do that through some trim work.

I showed Cy this inspiration picture of what I was wanting in our master bedroom.

And so far, this is what Cy has done…

He has framed out two windows and our french doors.

We have NOT painted the trim yet, but all the trim you see in these pictures will be painted white.

Here is the trim work on the bottom of the window.  Very basic.
