Window frames can need repainting before other areas of a room. They can invite touching as walls do not, and they can also be more subject to dust and dirt from the outdoors.
- Remove all the hardware, such as locks and latches.
- Tape the windows. Put painter's tape around the edges of each of the panes. Some painters like to leave 1/16 inch.
- Tape the walls around the window.
- Use a small angled brush.
- Pour a bit of paint into a dish.
- Dip the brush into the paint for just a couple of inches.
- Carefully paint the frame.
- Dip a razor blade into glass cleaner and carefully use it to scrape away any paint that has ended up under the tape. If you're nervous about this, wrap a thin cloth around the blade.
- Remove the tape from the windows.
