Introduction: Window Shutter

Picture of Window Shutter

Hi all,
I had a room on the Southside and I wanted a classic Window Shutter. Most of the new stuff is in PVC or very expensive wood. So I decide to build my own

Materials:

Tongue-and-Groove Panels

Fixations

Screws

Glue Wood treatment and color

Step 1:

I cut the 3m panels in half and glued them together
I kept them together with tension belts

Step 2:

Picture of

I measured the size of the left and the right shutter and trimmed them to the right size
I painted them with Wood treatment an added the Z construction.

Step 3:

I posed the shutters in the right place to mark the holes for the hinges

Step 4: Painting

Then they were painted and after drying mounted.

The End.

PS:

I've build them Avril 2013 and they are still looking good ;)

Yay, real shutters!
99.9% of the one I see around here are fake. I'm not even sure why anyone bothers.
