Let’s dig right in!
We started by removing the old, dated trim.
Tip: One way to trim costs is to find areas you can cut corners. I didn’t mind the trim on the bottom under the window sill, so I opted to keep that in place and only replace the side and top trim.
For this bay window, I needed to have the trim fit under the bulk head. Here are the sizes I used.
For the sides, I used 1 x 3 primed trim boards.
To top the framing, I cut the 1 x 3 trim board one inch wider than the side boards.
And finally to cap off the top framing, I cut a 1 x 2 primed trim board one inch wider than the top frame.
Once we had installed the framing, we painted the trim around with a fresh coat of satin in Simply White.
We added these woven blinds from Affordable Blinds to complete the look.
We chose the Essential Cordless Woven Wood Shades from AffordableBlinds.com in the Winthrop Tortoise color.
First, we started by removing the brackets from the frames.
Then you fit the blinds in place and mark where the brackets go.
Next, you hang the bracket with the screws provided.
We opted for an inside mount, meaning the blinds are inside the window frame.
We predrilled the holes before screwing the brackets in place.
Once the brackets are hung, you can hang your blinds.
As you can see, the guide holes are very wide, making it perfect to adjust the bracket placement.
What I love about these blinds is that the cord mechanism is hidden.
So when you want the blinds drawn, you simply pull down from the bottom of the blinds.
There is no need for cords to get tangled in! When you want to put them back up, you simply push them up into place.
I LOVE THESE BLINDS!
We installed all three blinds in less than 30 minutes!
