Sometime since I completed a couple more windows. These are in the dining room and this is the living room. That makes 3 rooms complete and I have 5 more rooms to go before this project will be crossed off my list. UGH!!! Yes, it is tedious, but we really like the look that the shutters give the rooms so I will persevere. ...
