  1. Foam board window boards and shutters

    Thought I'd share how I made some fake wood boards and shutters that I'll put on my house windows. These are made from foam board (I used 20" x 30") purchased from the dollar store so they're very cheap to make. Other materials used are brown spray paint, black acrylic paint, and spray clear...
