Wooden House Shutters Under $20

For these shutters I used the $2 1x4 pieces of common board. I love using this wood because they are so cheap and you can make a lot of different things with them.

For this project I had a new employee in the shop with me. Lola was a little distracting for me completing this project on time, however. It seemed like all she wanted to do was play and not get any work done. I'll still keep her on the payroll, because she is good company.

One set of shutters takes 6 1x4's. Staple or nail gun and glue to fasten them together and some paint to finish them. I also had to buy a masonry bit and masonry screws to fasten them to the brick. Those prices were added to the over price of the shutters.
