Creating Indoor Shutters
Indoor shutters awnings make an interesting and fun addition to the kitchen, children’s bedroom shutters and all shutters where an outdoor feel is desired. The construction of an awning is quite simple. A curtain rod is placed near the wall and a second curtain rod of the same length is placed at least 12 inches away from the wall. The other rod is mounted lower and a faux awning stretched from the first rod across the other rod. This creates the impression of an awning.
