Room with a (new) view

When we moved into our house…oh, 17 months ago…we didn’t change out the blinds that were already in the house.  They were old school mini blinds, but they did the job. (Well, sort of…not all of our doors/windows had coverings.) But today was a big day – we got new shutters installed. I love them!

Here are the befores and afters:

This door would drive me absolutely crazy from my dogs’ nose prints. Totally worth the cost of the shutters :).

Another thing that bothered me is that anyone who came to our door could see right in. That and the dog nose prints.

I totally wish this was a sponsored post, but for the locals, we got our shutters at Rossi Brothers. They do amazing work!  We are repeat customers – they did all of the shutters in our old house as well!
