The Newman's DIY Decorative Shutters

Shutters can be an easy way to dress up the exterior of a house. They can also be a bit expensive. That is, unless you make your own DIY shutters!

There was a time when shutters were an actual functioning feature on a house. These days, they're mainly relegated to being a decorative feature. So when the couple from the blog Hello Newmans wanted to add decorative shutters to their home, they decided to make their own DIY shutters.

We've seen this crafty couple's handiwork here before so it should come as no surprise that they were able to pull off this DIY. All it took was some inexpensive wood, some power tools, and paint to dress up the outside of their house.

Isn't it amazing what they were able to do with framed plywood? Yep, that's right. The couple used plywood, onto which they attached a "frame" and then painted black, to create these faux shutters. And the best part? The Newman's DIY shutters cost them $64! That's amazing savings compared to the $800 they were originally quoted for authentic shutters.
