Casa Quickie: Paint the Frame

Save the acres of tabletop and wall space we have indoors, there's only so much space to personalize on the exterior of our homes. Landscaping demands upkeep and time. Beyond that, there are limited places to use accessories and hardware outside. Painting, on the other hand, is a simple way to make your home stand out from its neighbors — especially now that you know how to paint your home's exterior. I recommend choosing a neutral color for your home's siding, and using color on your shutters. One way to make the most of this is to paint the frame of your window. That additional sliver of color anchors your shutters, making them a focal point rather than an accent. Have you tried this trick on your home?
