Just when you thought I stopped working on my bedroom I'm back.
Never fear, I am committed to finishing this room!
I started working on the windows. I love adding character to my builder grade house. I think it makes it more custom and adds character. Here are what the windows looked like when I started.
First, I took out the drywall on the sill.
I cut along the corners so it would come out clean without messing up the sides.
Next, I just dug in!
I used a small crow bar and pried up all the drywall. I removed all the nails and corner bead also. Then I vacuumed and cleaned everything up.
(Warning this makes a big mess!)
Then came the
fun hard part, making the sill. I have learned that measuring doesn't work well because the walls are never square. Making a card board template is the easiest way to get a good fit.
Then I just transferred it to my wood piece and cut it out using a few different saws.
Once the sill was in place I chose some molding to surround the window with. I used the same casing that was around my door. Originally I was going for a more elaborate look but I'm putting up crown molding and curtains so I went with a simple casing. To finish it off I used some baseboard molding and turned it upside down to make the apron.
Then I did the same thing to the other two windows.
What do you think?
I just can't wait until I get it all painted out.
Now I'm ready to tackle the wall treatment!!
Thanks for stopping by!
