The Cover Up

Did you see the window
in my downstairs bathroom?
Yes. I know. It's hideously ugly.
One reason---it's the cheap aluminum clad, original to the house.
The second---it's a ground-level window that gets hit continually with sprinkler water.
For the past several years I've used shutters to cover it. They were a pretty solution to an ugly problem. But because we have neighbor children who find it amusing to peer into our ground-level windows, the shutters were always closed making the room very dark.
I've come up with a better cover up.
It involves MDF, PVC, and burlap.
Are you curious?
I'll give you the how to's tomorrow.

Ooooh, can't wait. I'm so in love with burlap right now. Yes, I realize i am a little behind on that wagon. But ever since I saw your table runners, I've been a total fan. I'd like to cover my entire house in burlap!! :)

So interested to see what you did, b/c I have a kitchen window problem that needs fixing. I have already purchased the burlap, just haven't done anything with it yet.

I won't be able to sleep tonight!

BTW - I went to Savers on 7200 South yesterday - haven't been there for at least six months and was floored by how much they've expanded and cleaned it up - very nice!
