DIY Farmhouse Window Trim

Our mission: To make our sisters house a home in 36 hours! Our baby sis lives about 5 hours away from us and moved into her home about one year ago. She has 4 kids under the age of 5 and hasn’t had time to really make her house functional and says it hasn’t felt like she really ever “moved in”. We loaded our trailer full of lumber and tools, loaded the kids in the car and headed to our sisters house for what we now call a #shantyhousecrash!


Among the list of projects we wanted to accomplish was to trim the windows out in her living room. They were just your basic builder-grade windows and we knew we could easily and inexpensively frame them out!


This is such a great home improvement project that will add character to your home and give it a custom feel.
