Now... in my head I flipped it... like this:
Now, I see potential to block the blasted sun that shines through the front windows and bakes the shoppe in the morning. We had some plastic-y plantation shutters that I had the Mr. take down when we opened. We still have them on the side windows and I don't love them.
SO, in true me fashion, I immediately called the Mr and explained to him what I wanted. He came in and sketched this out:
He is good at reading my ideas and sketching them out.... I scribble rather than sketch. I told them there had to be an odd number of panels... that was super important. I am an odd number gal.
So after the sawing and the painting, I got the striped awnings that I have always wanted for my little shoppe.
They are way cuter than the dust loving shutters! I am planning on adding my logo to the windows underneath.
They are fun and rustic, but not too whimsical. Now, I just have to convince the Mr to make me 2 more and take the shutters down.... those shutters are heavy though, so it may be awhile.
Okay, pinky promise that once I get this chaos organized into something presentable, I will share some photos.
bye for now~
