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

Thanks so much for sharing that info and for being so kind with your comments! Jason was tickled to see them up too! I'm so glad you like them!

I love your garden shed. I don't blog myself, yet, but I do blog hop in hopes of finding some great ideas from some very creative people. I also live in Ohio, and my husband and I are looking to build a larger version of what you have. He calls it the "Heeman, women haters club". I guess he deserves it having to live with me and our 6 dayghters! LOL. Anyway, I was wondering if you could give me some information about your shed. Is it all constructed from standing seam steel? Also, did you buy a prefab kit or did your hubby make up his own plans? We won't be starting ours until next Spring, so I am gathering as much info as possible. My email is momoffive35@yahoo.com. Some day I will have to update the number! Thanks, Janene

It just stopped being 99% or so yesterday.! of course that is just going to change for only two days. Next week we are back up in the high 90's. The out building is so wonderful! will you set up shop there to sell produce?
I love the shutters. You have invested so much into the estate and it really looks well loved. I hope your day is filled with all that beauty around you!
Happy Fall :)

Well, good job! Those shutters look pretty, and they fit so nicely on your garden shed. The paint job makes it match the shed tastefully.
