This is one of my favorite DIY projects ever, and as you can see, I hang these shutters up in every house.  While we're down to just one dog now, sadly, Harley still needs a quiet place to retreat when we have small visitors, and this is the perfect solution.  They're so much prettier than a plastic … [Read more...]
