Frugal February: DIY Board & Batten Shutters
I am in love with board and batten shutters. I have a traditional brick southern house and the most hideous plastic black shutters are stuck on there, totally ruining the effect of beautiful windows. Since one of the shutters keeps falling off, I am determined to replace them with something more charming and more sturdy.
Then I priced them out.
We would need 8 sets.
Some are up to $300 a set.
I can't count that high. Hey I have a Disney Cruise to pay for; i can't be spending money on shutters!
Then I just happened to see this post on Firefliesandmagnolias.com. Check it out.
Talk about saving some serious cash!
