Shutters With Fabric Inserts

This is what Kurt and I have been working on. I wanted shutters with fabric inserts for my studio. I found out pricing them was not an easy task. I guess there is not a huge demand for shutters with fabric inserts these days, but I have always liked the look. I decided after getting several estimates...that they were way to expensive for someone else to make. I thought I bet I can design these. Actually...constructing them is a different matter though. I am not good with a hammer and nails. I mentioned to my husband what I was planning and he kind of looked at me confused...bewildered and certainly was wondering what I was getting him into. He eventually caved. He made the frames, did all the staining and hinged them together and hinged them on to the window frame...and I like. I also put a shelf above the window for my knick knacks.



Here are the finished shutters. I really liked how they came out. ~amy

Your shutters look great! Hubs did a great job on the frames! Love the fabric instead of the slats! Love it!

I am VERY impressed.
Was it difficult to get the corners squared? That would probably send me around the bend.

Your husband did an awesome job and the fabric looks so pretty. Great job, thanks for sharing.

Oh, by the way I just love your playlist, you seem as varied in your music taste as me, anything from Kid Rock to big band and everything in between.
