Do you love the look of black windows? I do but the price for them is outrageous so I have a great hack for you and it's really quite easy! Just trim your white windows with wide black trim, and there you go. You get the look of black windows without the added cost.
I used 5" all weather boards and painted them jet black with a semi gloss exterior paint. We used a brad nail gun to attach them to the siding. This is a great, inexpensive way to add curb appeal to your home.
I also added the black trim around the front door and garage door. This created a cohesive look to the entire exterior of our home.

I have a client who purchased black windows for his new house build. Before the house was even completed, the paint started peeling off his new windows. It was a nightmare. This can also happen if you decide to paint your existing white windows with black paint. So, be aware that could be a problem for you.
I now actually prefer this trim method over real black windows. If you decide to give this hack a try, send me pictures of your finished project!
I've had a lot of people ask for links to the boards. Click here for a link to the boards at Lowes.
Below is an extra little video with a bit more explanation of how I attached the trim.
Till next time!
