Jeff's Shutters #3 - Completed

I'm participating in Metamorphosis Monday at Between Naps on the Porch. Thanks to Susan!

Jeff finished his shutters. See Jeff's Shutters from May 20 and Jeff's Shutters #2 from July 16. Gordon designed them. Jeff built the shutters and the hardware. Paint color was a issue. Gordon wanted "stronger colors. Others wanted less strong.

The thing that pulled it all together was painting the addition.

How about that rich red door?

Before: black, too-small louver shutters. The addition was white and didn't look very integrated with the brick part.

Here is the bluer color, I did Photoshop mock-ups for Jeff and Gordon:

I like with it no shutters. The underlying formal feeling comes out that way. The house seems bigger.

  1. Great topic, great post.

    Yes, amazing without shutters, especially in front. Looks more like a historical manor house in England.

    Please, paint the downspouts brick color, when they traverse brick and siding color when they traverse siding.

    The mailbox? I would paint it the shutter color.

  2. Painting the addition was a good move. Great looking house. Love those shutters. So much more attractive than the louvered shutters that were on the house before.

  4. Shutters are like eyebrows. I have some on the inside of my guest room windows too. They just seemed to fit in with the rest of the room.
    I love a red door.

  5. That turned out GREAT! Very sharp looking. The creamy white trim, red door, painted addition - they all look super, together! (And don't look at my comments from a few months ago - I think my vote was for "no shutters" with my second place vote of "black shutters." Boy, was I wrong!!

  6. These turned out really wonderful -I love the painted addition in the back now. Like you said -it's all integrated now. The green is much more succesful than the blue would have been -definitely infintely better than the black!

  7. I think they got it right! They look perfect 5*. I also wanted to tell you that I read your comments all the time, and agree with you most the time... smiles

  8. Oh Yes! That looks great! And I especially like the bright red door to contrast with those beautiful shutters. Last thing to paint ... maybe the mailbox out by the street!

    ReplyDelete
  9. P.S. And I would paint that mailbox red, to match the door! ;-)

  10. no shutters does look great! But so does the new and improved shutter version. My biggest pet peeve is the faux shutters that aren't really the width of the window.

    Oh and Copper is perfect! Cutie!!

  11. Love the design of the new shutters and the larger size looks so much better and I love the new color too.

    And you're right painting the addition brought it all together.

    1. I was googling exterior paint ideas and came across this lovely old post. I adore the green color of the shutters/addition siding with the creamy trim. It all goes so beautifully with the red brick. Do you recall the name of the paint colors/brand used for the shutters, siding and trim? I would love to use similar colors for the exterior of my home.

  16. Terry-painting the addition made all the difference! I like it without the shutters as well--gives it a completely different look. This would have made a great HGTV Curb Appeal segment!

  17. The shutter color now is wonderful. And you're right it needed the addition painted the same color. Love the shutters. Looks fantastic.

  18. Love the new color on the shutters. I wasn't a fan of the black, I liked it without any shutters, but with the new color, the house now has that certain *snap*. I love it!

    Cheers!

  19. Oh I really like those shutters. Very lovely!

  20. Wow - SO happy to see the final pictures, I loved your original posts. Like you and Tara, I thought the shutter-less look was charming, but I really like the choice that was made. The house looks great! The downspout doesn't bother me, but I like Tara's suggestion of a mailbox painted to match the shutters.

  27. Wow.. It's pretty great of your to create your own custom home shutters. Maybe next time you'll be having them as a business.

  28. The color of the shutters look really well with the whole architecture. It certainly made the house more appealing. I am also interested with window blinds and I know a good shop where you can get one. I am really excited with the ones I'm installing in my house. I hope it turns out great just like your house.
