I’ve been waiting forever to share this with ya’ll! A few weeks ago I built these DIY Craftsman Style Outdoor Shutters and I am so pleased with how they turned out. They really made the front of our house look so much more polished and updated. I participated in the Home Depot DIY Challenge and I was assigned to ‘lumber’. Take a look!
To see what the house looked like before this little update, GO HERE.
I saw lots of shutters tutorials online but I wanted mine a little different. As you may remember from my Exterior Home Makeover plan, I wanted 3 rails on my shutters, visible grooves, and hinges.
I painted them a more subdued aqua, called Wythe Blue by Benjamin Moore.
And of course had to paint my front door to match. If you want to see how I made that cool number sign with planter CLICK HERE. The wreath was also something I put together… I love the summery colors, don’t you?
I CANNOT wait to paint the brick and build the columns, but I have to be patient… I have a lot of sticks in the fire already. We may get to it this year, we may not.
Until then, it is looking so much better and I’m happy with the results.
