From the Workshop (Custom Order)

We finally finished up a custom order for primitive shutters. Well I should say Jason finished up an order. I really just helped him with whatever he needed me for at that time and with overseeing distressing! :)

These are working windowsill shutters for a home remodel project. The customer wanted them painted black and distressed with red.

I love the way they turned out!

Poor Jason. Anytime he gets a custom order, it usually turns into something that I want him to make for me! After sitting these in our windowsill and me seeing how wonderful and primitive they look in my house, I want some!

When we get back from China, we'll be putting a button on my sidebar for custom shutter orders, if anyone is interested.

I sure hope the customer (Ms. Darlene) likes them as much as I do! Jason enjoys creating and it's very gratifying to him to know a customer is happy with the order too! Glad we could get them all done and out before we left for China too!

Oh, and I'll try to get a post out soon on our China plans and schedule! Needless to say, it's been a busy week! And getting even busier.....

Thanks for stopping by! And thank you for all the comments on our "We're Going to China" post! Wow! I was overwhelmed by the kindness and the prayers! We appreciate it all so much, more than you'll ever know! Thank you all so much!

God bless,

Love them!! They look great. That would be hard to see how fantastic they look in or on your house. Good thing hubby makes them, hehe.

Love the shutters, such a simple design that makes a huge primitive statement. Can't wait to hear when Luke is home with you. Great idea to put the button on your sidebar for custom shutters. Have a great evening.

Great looking shutters, I know the "one-for-you, one-for-me" feeling when you make something for someone else! Congrats on the China trip!

I thought you'd appreciate knowing that Todd's sister and her husband have been matched with their little one from China. They sent in their LOA this week and hope to be traveling within the next few months ... right around our new niece's 1st birthday. After five years of waiting, they are ecstatic. Such happy news!
