Well, we finally have gotten around to trimming out (most) of the new windows, settling on the same style we used in the main bathroom. Unfortunately, I still have to fill holes, caulk joints, prime, and paint everything. I know what I’ll be doing the rest of the week.
But right now, it’s nice to see trim, albeit brown and white trim, instead of sheet rock edges and home foam. The side casement is 3 1/2 inch wide trim with a 3/4 inch thick by 1 inch deep bead molding/fillet, topped off by a 5 inch tall top casement.
For the bottom half, the 3 1/2 inch casement is on both the sides and bottom with a 1 inch thick window stool overhanging the casement by a half-inch.
All the house windows are trimmed, but we still have to track down a piece of oak for the floor at the sliding door.
And then figure out curtain placement and height. In the family room, I’m dreaming of pretty curtains, hung on either side of each window and the door. Not sure yet if the sconces will hinder that plan.
But I’ve got another problem, hopefully you can help; height of the curtains. I’m assuming it would look best to hang the curtain rod an inch or two above the new trim, which is fine in the living spaces. However, I’ve already made curtains for the boys’ bedroom, before we decided on a trim style. Which means, if I raise the curtains in their room a few inches, they’ll look short at the floor. Without moving the current set up, the curtain rod is about an inch below the top of the trim.
So, do you have any ideas or tips? Perhaps you’ve sewn curtains that are now too short? What did you do to fix it?
