Try This: Build Your Own Interior Shutters

Try interior shutters instead of draperies to add to the R-value and to the character of your home.

Then we cut pieces of foam board scaps to use as printing blocks—a simple rectangle for stripes and a small square for the diamond checkerboard. Paint the block with a brush before stamping or rub the block into a pool of paint on a paper plate. The block-printing process should be primitive and imperfect to impart character and style. Although these interior shutters should never get wet, the clay paint can absorb and release small amounts of condensation gracefully. Check with your local hardware store for simple shutter hinges and mounting instructions based on your unique window configuration.
