My house was built in 1964 and has almost all the original windows still. I got tired of looking at bugs and cobwebs on the kitchen sink window and replaced it. I couldn't clean it properly as the window didn't open well and I sure couldn't clean it from the outside as it is very high above the ground. This should be much easier; the windows tilt in and have real working latches! You can't let an event like that just go without fixing up other things nearby. Do you like the colour of my NEW kitchen? I chose it to go with my Polish pottery. Technically, yellow would be the best colour but it would look absolutely hideous with my black appliances and wouldn't "transition" from the stone brown in the next room very well. So there you go. No more squinting and bobbing my head about to see what is going on in the back yard. It's so bright and airy, and I will enjoy looking out my window when winter comes... there is nothing like being able to see the view without having to feel the weather sometimes.
|I got new windows for my kitchen sink area. Painted the frame white. Still haven't decided what to do with the backsplash bit under the window; am thinking of small tiles instead of white paint.|
|Blurry picture, but gives a nice overview of the kitchen.|
|Bye-bye, gross-o windows.|
|Of course the Polish pottery stays in the same place.|
