Primitive Country Home
Shutter and Window
Johnny made these shutters look older by
distressing the ends of the cypress boards and the battens. We accented
the cypress battens by adding carriage bolts which we painted black.
Again, pumpkin yellow was used to stain the shutter. The country window
shades in the bedroom window were made from ticking cloth with a lining
only for the scalloped bottom edge. Look for the 'old-timey' crocheted
shade pulls in your drapery shops.
