The curtains and couch cushions will be shades of blue, floor a grey/brown stone look:


everything goes with polished frames : ) btw, i'm going to e-mail you later about your walls.

I didn't polish my window screens, but I did sand them. . I painted one of them with some silver paint and it looked good. I was setting up to paint the rest of them and decided to clean them first with some lacquer thinner. As soon as the thinner hit the paint, it dissolved the paint. I then had to sand them to get rid of the transition line from paint to metal. When I sanded them I noticed that they looked exactly like the painted silver one. So... I sanded all of them and did not paint anything. They are sanded with 320 grit with a orbital sander and they look great. I will be doing the same thing to the trim piece that goes around the smaller window.

I used a mouse sander with fine grade paper to get the corrosion and paint off. Nice and smooth now. (Worked quickly, so as not to overheat aluminum). I am going to paint the frames white to match the new storm windows and screens I picked up 2 days ago. Anyone have a suggestion on the best paint to use on aluminum frames? Linda

Here's my sanded and slightly polished kitchen window frame. I'm pretty happy with the results.

Looks great. I got the first coat on. I used Home Depot All in One paint and it is nice.

Cool

I read this thread last night...looked over at my inner trim and said, hmmm I have the time to see what I come out with. So I took the 3M super duty rubbing compound (gravel in a bottle) and gave this first one a workout and then finished with MOTHERS MAG & ALUMINUM POLISH and here is the result. Also the outer rim shined up pretty nice too. I really like that 3M compound for cutting thru the crud!

RedhawkerII... where does one get the 3m rubbing compound & Mothers? Would that be autosupply or basic hardware?

A paint store that specializes in auto paint would probably have the 3M super duty and most auto parts stores have the Mother's.
