Board and Batten Shutters
This simple weekend project includes Royal® PVC trim, and can take your curb appeal up a notch!
Let’s do this.
- 3- 1x4x12" PVC boards
- 3- 1x4x42" PVC boards NOTE: board length should equal your window height
- 12- Trim Screws
- Table Saw
- PVC Cement
- Cordless screwdriver
- Table Saw
- Safety Goggles
- Tape Measure
- Exterior latex paint (optional)
- Paint brush
Lay short boards out on cutting table parallel to one another. Properly space the boards so they are equidistant from one another relative to the long boards.
This step is optional, but if you have a desired look for your shutters, it could provide some serious curb appeal! Paint the long trim boards to your desired color, and let them fully dry before securing them to the short boards.
Next, place the long boards flat on top of the short boards, running in the opposite direction.
Insert spacers between long boards in order to ensure spacing is consistent. Using your screwdriver, secure the long boards to the short boards, starting with the middle, then moving to the edges.
Attach you DIY shutter to your exterior siding next to your window. Step back and take it all in!
