If anyone can advise me as to how to paint this I would appreciate it. If I paint around the windows white then I would have to paint the door jams white too??
I will let you all voice your opinion since I have NO clue where to even start.
Maybe this will help you:
"Q: When painting a door one color on one side and another color on the other side, what color should the edges be?
A: The common rule of thumb is to paint the edge of the door the same color as the room it faces. For example, suppose you have a white hallway and a blue bedroom, and you want to paint one side to match the hall and the other to match the bedroom. Assuming the door opens into the bedroom, you would paint the edge with the hinges white, since it faces the hall when the door is open, and you would paint the edge with the latch, which faces the bedroom when open, blue."
