“When you’re on the fence about what size shutters to use I suggest using the “straddle method”. It’s the best way to let us know you’re aware of the problem but still too lazy to do something about it.”

Rule #3 Shutters should be the same shape as the window they cover. If you’ve got rectangular windows then there is no need to add arched shutters.
Sad because other than the arch they seem to be the right width and height for the windows.”

“Budgets are tight these days. Just because you can afford to remove a window and brick it in doesn’t mean you have the money to pull the old shutters down too!
A+ for not doing anymore than is absolutely necessary.”

“If you scroll alllllllll the way back a few years ago in my feed you’ll see a picture of the garage on this house which was the very first house that made me crazy enough to post shutter fails. So, yes, this is the first Shudder Sunday house.
The crazy part is that I drove by it yesterday and noticed that they took it a step further and painted their shutters.”

“Sticking with our theme of garage door shutters today I found this one extremely troubling. It’s as if the faux strap hinges and one pair of shutters didn’t quite cut it and as they stood back someone actually believed that the solution was yet another pair of shutters. Hmmmmmm…”

“Ahhh corporate shutters. Even the apartment complexes can get in on shutters sunday I can hear it now. “Hey Bob, how do we dress up the building to get higher rents?”
“How about adding shutters?”
“For those massive windows? That’s gonna be too expensive.”
“Hold my beer.””
