Paint or stain deep jams on wood windows and doors...

16 years ago

I've seen a few posts similar to this, about mixing stained and painted trim, but we've run into a unique problem. We planned to stain all of the grids in our new windows and french doors a dark walnut and have all of the trim and millwork painted white. I love this look, except all of our windows have 8" deep pine jambs (spelling?) surrounding them. So do we stain or paint the deep jambs? Or do we just go ahead and stain the entire window, casing and all, and just do the mouldings and baseboards in white? Our floors are also going to be dark walnut if that makes a difference in the look...Help! Thank you for any input or pictures.
