When we first moved to our house the living room windows were UGLY! They had dark frames with dark glass---just think of three big black holes and you've got the picture. The windows are so large that it would cost a small fortune to buy window coverings. We have since changed out the windows to beautiful white framed ones that have the look of panes instead of huge picture windows. I love my windows now! But in the years before the nice windows I used these shutter doors that are hinged together to give us some privacy as well as add a decorative element to detract from the ugliness of the old windows.
These shutters now serve as a room divider to hide an area in my home that still needs some improvement(you wouldn't want to see a picture of that). The shutters have also done duty as a backdrop for guest speakers at church functions and for wedding receptions. They are very versatile. They have served me well, much more than their original purpose as closet doors.
