Window Frame Revamp: Take 3

Yes, this would be numero tres of making over this poor little victim, but by golly, I think I finally like it! 
In case you don't remember, I last left you with this:

I loved the knobs so much, but didn't think they looked right. I was about to return them, but then I asked myself why I would do that when I love them? There's gotta be something else I could change, right?
Then I thought about how I've never been crazy about the color, even thought it matches my other bedroom furniture, so I decided to go out on a limb and paint it. The problem with the color was that it's a warm color and so is the beach mat, so the cool silver knobs just threw it off.

My solution? Paint it the same blue I just painted the coral.

Here is a pic in case you don't feel like going to the link:

So, I painted my window frame and stained it with some Minwax Early American and I finally love it!

And now the knobs look so much better, in my opinion.

Ok, I promise you won't be hearing about this guy again...I think.

P.S. This is how the window originally looked.

Join us Saturdays at for the weekend wrap up party!

Haha! I do the same thing, change things out all the time. Imagine how many layers of paint are actually holding our old relics together at this point! :)

Very nice new look!

Love it! I just did a wall in my family room with old barn windows and a screen door, stop on over!

I have to say, third time was definitely the charm on this one. I love this look the absolute best. Don't change it! Color, knobs and all :)
