Window reveal.

One of the biggest things I dislike about my house...white 4X4 tile...on EVERY window sill. A lot of the houses in my neighborhood have the same tile. It's terrible looking....I kept telling Mr. T I wanted it ripped out...but he wasn't sure how we could finish it off to make it look nice...seriously, there had to be something we could do.

This past December, (yep, in the freezing temps and snow) we had our windows replaced. I told Mr. T that as long as they were pulling out the multi-paned "awesome" aluminum windows...could they please rip out the tile as well...


Seriously...look at these beauties.


We just LOVE the new windows...they are clean...they are not multi-paned...they are white...
they open...oh...and they have screens:)

best part of our new windows....NEW window sills.

Don't tell me you don't know how to finish them off...just look what you did:)

He did all the cutting...I did the painting...he did the nailing...we both did the caulking...and we now just sit and stare at their beauty.

So long porcelain tile...so long!

Very awesome!

Sooo much better! That tile thing seems like it may have been a 60's thing, maybe.

Your new windows look great! I've lived with old windows also and it is great when you can get new ones.

Ummmm...were those sills installed when I was there last week? I can't believe I missed that!

Oh, come on...you know you miss your old ones. If you get nostalgic, you can come over and look at mine...and my aluminum windows...and my honey oak cabinets...and my gold trimmed fireplace...
