Shutter mirror can add a homely taste to any facade. From louvered to simpler styles, shutters listen back to an earlier time when they helped to secure houses for long absence and protected from cold winter winds. With advances in masonry anchors, the fixing of gaps to a brick face is not a challenge it used to be. With the help of either treated tire wood or composite plastic / wood options, you can make your own decorative shutters that will last for several years.

Measure and cut the shutters
Measure the height and width of your shutter mirror, including all trims. Mark your wooden deck to the length of your window. Select enough pieces for each page to cover approximately half the width of the window. These gaps will not close so the number of pieces will be determined by how you want it to look. These are your vertical shutter boards.
Mark the 5 cm x 10 cm (2 x 4 inches) treated wood depending on how many pieces are on each side. You need the total width of the material, plus 5 cm (2 inches), between each piece. In three pieces, for example, the 5 cm x 10 cm (2 x 4 inch) slices would be cut 52 cm (20.5 inches) in length. Make two or three of these depending on the height of the shutter mirror. Higher windows may require three for strength. These are your horizontal rules. Cut all pieces to length with a circular saw or hand saw. Make sure your cuts are square.Tag: decorative window mirror with shutters
