We Shutter To Think!

We all know that shutters add instant cottage charm almost as fast as snapping your fingers. We've always got a few pairs tucked between our monthly treasures at the shop. Can you see them here?

Look closer!
See them?!?!?!

Shutters can add architectural interest, plus a beach-y or French flair, with different paint colors and finishes. Armed with a few ideas, next time you see some shutters you know what you can do with them to add that charm to your house!
Martha's Craft Of The Day email lands in our inbox every day. It's always something simple with readily available materials, and always looks great! That's why this one really caught our eye:
Keeping the look you want in mind, re-peruse those home decorating books and magazines you already have. We're betting you'll spy more ideas than you can shake a screwdriver at!

Or try a web search and see what sparks your interest, then take it from there and make it your own.

So think outside the ol' (window) box and show us what you come up with!
