Today, I want to show you the Simple Rustic Shutters, Mr. Cookie Puzzle made for the new house.
I love them. Our new house is very Rustic/Primitive in style, so I want them to be very rustic, simple and YES, even imperfect!
These are made out of pecan boards, made from a tree Mr. Cookie Puzzle cut. He just measured the window and cut the height and width to match. He told me that each side is one half the width of the window. Ok...good to know, but honestly, I just didn't care, I wanted four slats on each side of the window, with a gap between each slat, and three braces in the back. I gave my orders, left a let him to his thing.
I then had to return, and REMIND him NOT TO MAKE THEM PERFECT! I wanted them imperfect..toss the level and square please and thank you.
He confessed that he cheated a little, and use a guide to make sure the slats were evenly spaced out, but he just 'eye-balled' the rest. I have to say, I am very happy with what he did. Very Simple Rustic Shutters. Not Perfect, Slightly "Off:, a little wonky, kinda like me..LOL!
