Hello AT,

My apt has several standard-issue black-rimmed replacement windows that are so common around nyc. I would love to paint them white, but not sure if its a good idea or how to do so (ie type of paint?) or if the paint will just chip away as I used the window? Any ideas? My apt is very white-themed and these black windows draw too much attention to themselves.

Thanks! Ruby
