When I was little my sisters and I used to play Gone With the Wind.
Or some facsimile there of.
We’d walk around in fancy costumes that came out of a barrel of old prom dresses some brilliant person handed down to us and wear hats and sip tea and pretend we were waiting to make clothes out of curtains.
I was in charge of everything.
So of course….
….I was Scarlett.
I was always the one planning the parties and telling my sisters to get the tea and tossing my hair around and waving my hands and batting my eyelashes and sighing.
And saying y’all.
And wishing I could throw open the windows and wave a white handkerchief at passerbyers…
…..and hoping against hope that one day Rhett would show up.
Then one day I grew up.
And married my own Rhett and started wearing red lipstick and moved to a farmhouse in the middle of the country with a master bedroom that looks like it speaks southern.
I decorated it with seagrass rugs and burlap ottomans and chippy tables and patterned lampshades and linen chairs and fresh flowers from the garden.
And the one thing I always wanted to add?
The one thing my heart longed for?
The one thing I knew would finish the room and make it shine and be the last little red-lipstick detail?
Wonderful, incredible, amazing, classic, story-book ending plantation shutters.
They have the best selection of Plantation Shutters that are so much more affordable than similar shutters from other retailers..
It was seriously the easiest ordering process I’ve ever seen.
I sent in the measurements and picked out all the details I wanted and then they called me up for a shutter consultation. The customer service department wanted to make sure I had everything exactly like I wanted it so there wouldn’t be any problem with the fit of my blinds. We walked through every detail together to make sure the shutters were perfect.
And then these arrived.
Beautiful, wonderful, high-quality plantation shutters totally custom-made for me.
And the best part?
Wait until you see this.
And close the bottom shutters.
Or close the top if there’s too much sun and leave the bottom open.
And then…..wait for it…..wait for it….
You can open them like this.
Isn’t it wonderful how a simple, little thing can make a day so much brighter.
