Man, you might think you donít need any wood trim but tbh, you do! Also, you can skip the curtains for those, get window frosting instead

Window frosting?? In the living room?

You want everybody to get window frosting regardless of which room they are talking about. It may be interesting to see your own place.

Use white aluminum shingle drip edge, and set it with hot melt glue.

Are those windows single pane? Aren't they going to to load up with condensation and frost up in the winter? Oops, is that what the frost comment was about? Well, anyway if you are where it gets cold, and those are single pane, they are really gonna frost up in the winter time under propane heat. Lotta water in Propane.

i dont use propane heat, propane scares me and i prefer electric. Yes they are single pane but i have not seen any condensation yet, and we just went through one of the coldest winters in several years

OK Maybe the drip edge will work then. Maybe you can slide it behind the edge of the window, nail and tape the flange, and caulk in the angle change with white silicon bathroom sealant? Just a thought.
