New shutters for my garden shed
After visiting Tammy at http://countrygirlathome.blogspot.com/ I knew I had found the shutters for my new garden shed. If you visit her etsy shop you will see her amazing shutters in different finishes. I asked that mine be shipped unfinished since I knew they would have to match my color choice on my building. Tammy is a sweet person and is very careful to get all the details for size and ect. Once we finally had all the information settled her dear husband made them to order and shipped them quite quickly. We are so pleased with the quality of materials and the finished product. Thanks Tammy for working with me. When this large package arrived I knew what it had to be. We also ordered a pair of swing doors but that story is for another day...today it is about my garden shed.
The painting begins..the weather was too cool to paint outside so I put the shutters on the back porch and started the process...two started two to go!
Finally, the painting is done...now go to the building for some measuring.
This is the window where we are starting to hang our new shutters...there is excitment in the air...well at least I am excited.
Once all the measuring was done the first shutter is finally up...it is so much fun to see the changes taking place.
The first set...aren't they grand?
Well, this is the garden shed after all 4 shutters are up and ready to go. I think it really changes the look of the building. I really did think of painting them red but the shutters on our garage are green so that was the final decision. We are now ready to hang the lights and start the landscaping....then...lol
