Silver Trim

I decided to take a chance and repaint my grey window trim in silver. I was going to strip them, but felt the silver would be less maintenance down the road, and did not want to drip any stripper on my plasticoat.
Two coats so far and the resulting look is pretty good--- I would say. I also trimmed out the Airstream lettering.

Thanks guys, of course it isn't as cool as Peter's aluminum trim, non painted, but it does seem to work from at least a few feet away.

I also redid the bathroom flooring, putting tile in and pulling out the old carpet. Next is the carpet up front and maybe kitchen area laminate, not sure yet.

You have been busy. How did the tile work over the edge of the bath ABS?

It ended up looking ok, the tile covered the edge and does not show a line. I made sure I had all the staples and nail traces out prior to the glue down.
I used stick down tile from Lowe's --- was on sale for 60 cents a tile, total cost was about five bucks, plus the brass edge trim.
I figure at that price if the tile looks funky later I can easily replace it. I used a light coat of contact cement in addition to the pre-glue, so it will hold up better. Really brightened up the bath area.
