|I made these 1st floor shutters from skinny sticks and wood (S hooks are temporary)|
|I made more hanging baskets from Champagne tops|
|I cut the handrails to the length of the rails and glued them inside the channels|
|I added a second pair of shuttters to the bottom to allow the shutters to match the height of the doors|
|spray painted the railings black|
|I love the rich black coverage and the fumes are very low|
|spray paint base coat|
I then cut porch posts to size and spray painted them black along with the plastic railings to create a unified wrought iron look. I ordered two sets of large louvered shatters to add to the windows. I had to cut the second set down to make them match the height of the doors. I made more of the Champagne flower baskets and spray painted them black. I bought some artificial ferns from Hobby Lobby to use in the baskets later.
