Hello all,
I'm new here and this is my first post. I made two storm windows by copying my old storm window and now almost ready to paint them, the wood i have used is new/pine that I had here and its about 3 years old.

How should I paint them?

It sounds like the wood you used is new and unweathered so that'll make painting them easier. I recommend looking at some of the detailed discussions of painting that John and others have written:

Best Brand of Paint?

Pre-treatment, before priming exterior wood

After that, peruse some of the other posts on the site. I learn something new every time.
