Another project from our “smaller”, first house here. When we bought the house it had dried and faded shutters on just two front facing windows and when I priced out getting a set of plastic/vinyl for all the windows I was shocked by the price! Solution: buy some regular #2 pine and start cutting. I used cut offs as spacers for the gap between the boards, all 90 degree cuts, and with the amount of gluing surface there is no other fastener required. All of the sets were cut and assembled in less than an hour and the painting took maybe another two hours and for less than one set of the plastic/vinyl shutters.
