He and Favorite Son took them down and brought them home. This is what they looked like at that point. Even Jewel was skeptical!
The paint was pretty faded but the slats and frames were solid. The original color was green. One set was a bit shorter than the other so I decided to put the taller two in the center. Wonderful Hubby cleaned the rust off the original hinges and Favorite Son attached the shutters together for me.
I painted one side of the shutter screen green, as they had been originally.
The other side received a cream coat.
The screen was put to use last week when I put this tablescape together. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
It's special to think we saved this part of our family's homestead and will be able to use and enjoy it for years to come.
