We’ve been living with our newly renovated Kitchen for just over a month now and I’m still in love with the changes we made. So far everything has held up beautifully! We’re still having guests over that hadn’t seen the changes and they are always shocked to learn that we did all of the work in just one weekend! One kitchen project that I hadn’t shared on the blog, but was done before our kitchen makeover was our DIY Painted Black Window Frames. It took just a few hours and was the perfect solution for our future kitchen plans!

My husband and I debated this “black window” idea for quite a while, lol. He had some valid reasons for not wanting to paint the window, but I knew that it would look amazing with a black window frame – especially after our kitchen makeover was done.
In a few years, we plan to add an addition to our home. When we do that, three of our current windows will no longer look outside, so we are planning to use these windows in our new garage in the addition. My husband’s main concern with painting the kitchen window, is that it wouldn’t match his other windows – he didn’t want one black window and two white ones. So we set out to find a temporary solution that looked nicer than duck tape stuck on the trim. Our solution was Rustoleum Peel Coat Spray Paint!
How to Paint Your Own Black Window Frames
The first step was to tape off the area that was getting painted.
The next step was to use some poly drop sheets to protect the rest of our kitchen from the spray paint.
The Peel Coat spray paint we chose to use is one that you spray on, and then can peel away at any time. This is not a window that we ever open. If it was this product wouldn’t work because it would just peel the paint off every time it opened and slid the window across. For us this was the perfect temporary solution!
Because I was pregnant at the time, my husband graciously did all of the spray painting for me :) It took two coats to get the frame covered beautifully.
As soon as we peeled back the plastic and tape I knew we had made the right choice! The black frame looked stunning in the kitchen! Especially after the kitchen got it’s beautiful weekend makeover!
