Farm house windows

Creamy white window frames

Popular blogger Varpunen, Susanna Vento, painted the old window frames of the barn at her summer home in classic white. Follow these instructions to give your windows a new look with paint!

The cream shade is from the Vinha colour card 

While the walls of the wooden building were painted black, the windows were treated with airy white shade, 2686 Tuulikki. Like Susanna, you can paint the wooden window frames of your summer house creamy white with Teho Ikkunamaali

The barn stands on an old farm that belongs to Susanna’s family and welcomes the whole family every summer. Susanna Vento and her mother and sister were looking for a summer home and they found the farm with a large garden, a vegetable patch and a field in 2012. They have already done some work on the interior surfaces. This summer it was time to work on the barn facade: the wall surfaces, windows, doors and socle.
