Here is a picture of how my back facade looks today ,after two years of work , below is how it used to look , a little flat don't ya think?
Can you spot all the changes.
Before the shutters , looking a little blah now that it has shutters. So yes I did build the shutters from old left over fence boards , I scrubbed them down and then added a fresh coat of grey stain , the same stain I used on the shingles in the front and back of the house. Now my house has as much "curb appeal" as the front , maybe my back neighbours will let me design the backs of their houses too ... doubt they are so inclined , I know I am one of a kind , actually I am not , through blogging I have found there ARE others just like me.
I got those hinges I needed to make my freshly built shutters look more functional .
