Build Your Own Shutters

If you want a rustic look for your home, it’s simple to make your own window shutters. Not long ago, I was considering building shutters for my home and was unsure of which materials to use. At the same time, I had an older wooden fence in my backyard that needed to be replaced. After reading something on the internet, I had the idea of creating and building shutters for my home out of the old wood from the wooden fence. That was everything there was to it.

So, if you have any old wooden fencing or access to some old wood boards, maybe from an old barn, inspect the material to see if it’s in good enough condition to use for your wooden shutters. It’s possible that a lot of the wood has to be replaced or not used, but the wood that’s still in good condition can be used. Of course, it will need to be repainted, and nails and screws will need to be removed, but both of these defects will give your wooden shutters a rustic appearance. My good friend also stains the wood and stamps it with various tools to make it look aged.
So, once you’ve gathered your shutter building materials, go online or to the library to find some plans to follow in order to construct your shutters. I simply laid three or four boards on a flat surface and secured them with a board behind them to hold them straight and in line. So, assuming your boards aren’t too big, you might do the same thing. Place three boards on the ground and attach a backboard to the backside with nails or screws. Of course, in order to accommodate the shutters, you’ll need a board that runs from top to bottom and probably in the centre.
Finally, you’ll need to find out how to instal your shutters on your house and around your windows after they’ve been installed. In order to secure them to your house, you’ll need screws and hinges. If you want to open and close the shutters, they have all of the requisite hinges. My advice is that if you’re going to instal shutters, make them usable and open and close as required. This, of course, only refers to places where the weather is particularly harsh or extreme.
