Cottage style shutters: One of the items I will be doing this Spring or early Summer. For me, shutters are like eyes brows to eyes; a cottage window without them is like a eyes without eyebrows, frameless.
Currently, I have vinyl shutters on the cottage, I would like to replace them with some made of wood. I have searched the internet for the style I want and they are expensive…I mean EXPENSIVE. So what’s a girl to do? I know what this girl is going to do; I’m going to enlist my Sweetie to make me some. This is similar to the shutter I would like him to make; They are almost on the shaker side so I'm not real firm in this decision; spring is a couple of more months off so I have time to change my mind.
I will also be adding some window planters, I've always loved them; they certainly speak cottage style to me. It will be an opportunity to garden, which I love to do. I've already researched the type of window planters I want. I can't wait to get started!
These are the shutters I have on the house, aren't they awful! I don't mind the color, it's that they are vinyl and I don't care for the style. I thought about painting them until I could order the shutters I want but everything I have read on painting vinyl sounds like it won't work; eventually they will fade and peel. What a mess that would be not to mention the extra work.
