What have others done when they haven't liked the colour of your aluminium window frames?
Our house is 14 years old, and we're giving it a bit of a cheap "facelift". The painters are in next week doing a new beautiful new ulux colour scheme internally. Externa update to follow soon. And I am already acutely aware of just how much this is going to make the Primrose window frames stick out. Like dogs' you-know-whats.
My Dulux colour consultant said I could either live with it, or get in there with a tiny paintbrush and update the colour (to something less yellow). She and I both agree black would look great on the outside. Not sure about the inside though.
I (JOKINGLY) asked my painter if his guys would do it. Well, you can imagine his reaction. A great big no thanks - too fiddly!!
Had a look around the neighbourhood and noticed some of my naighbours seem to have handpainted their windowframes to update the colour!! I don;t think I would have noticed they were repainted if I hadn't looked closely enough.
What would you do? Paint it, or learn to live with it?
If you have painted your aluminium frames, how did you prepare them? And what did you use to paint them?
I'm not in a hurry to do anything yet - I'll let the painters update the interior with the new colour scheme... who knows... maybe they won't look so bad. But I doubt it... it's always the little things that get under my skin! grrrr....
P.S. It could be worse. At my godfather's house the other day I noticed that his frames are forest green. Now that would be a nightmare (for me, anyway!!)
