How To Build Interior Window Shutters
by MarKay of Aqua Lane Designs
I’m so excited to share this project with you all! It was so easy to do and cost less than $20 to make!
My laundry room is my next big makeover (lots of fun projects planned!) The first thing to tackle was this window. I have always loved the simple shape of these shutters and I thought wouldn’t it be fun to do them on the inside of this room?.. Why not?
All you need for this project is some 1×4 boards, paint, nails, some picture hangers and you’re set!
So I set off to the Home Depot to get my supplies. I needed to have 6 boards cut to 3 ft. and then 4 boards cut to 12 in. I found some pine 1×4’s that were only $4.38 for 8 ft. I needed 3 of them to make all my cuts. The best part- they did the cuts for me! I heart Home Depot 🙂
I picked up the rest of my supplies for less than $20 and I was on my way.
Having the cuts already done for me made it super easy.
First, I laid out all my pieces and gave them a coat of spray paint. One can was just barely enough to cover them all.
After they had dried I turned them over and set them up to be nailed together.
I wanted to make them look a little more distressed so I got out my can of gel stain and rubbed it on. You only need to apply a small amount to go a long way and then just make sure to rub it in fast before it dries.
I nailed the picture hangers onto the back and they were ready to hang!
I love the way these turned out and I’m excited to show you the rest of the projects I have planned for my laundry room, so make sure to check back!
Thanks for visiting, MarKay! So cute — excited to see what you do next!
