DIY Plantation Shutters - Katrina Chambers shows you just how easy it is to Install

You know I love a plantation shutter! I have them all through my home. But I never got around to putting one in my ensuite. It just wasn’t a priority at the time, but recently ISeekBlinds sent me a PVC plantation shutter and I thought I’d make a quick video to show you how easy it is to DIY their shutters.

The best thing about ISeekBlinds is that you save $$ by installing them yourself. I’ve chatted about them lots on my blog before. You just measure the window space, send in your order and your shutter will arrive in no time.

Here is the window. It’s a long one, and frosted so it didn’t bother me without a shutter, but now it has one I can’t believe I left it off. It looks so great!

Finish the look with No Gaps

Add some no more gaps around the edges. Wait a day for it to dry and then you can use your shutter. This project took us 15-20 minutes!

Beautiful Finish

You’re probably wondering why I went for the PVC? Well they are better suited to the wet areas. I have the Basswood in other rooms in my house, but they look NO different to me at all. Each blade in the PVC is reinforced with an Aluminium core to ensure this durable material won’t warp, crack, peel or fade. They are resistant to moisture and humidity. The Basswood has a slight grain finish.
