What you'll need:

Among the different types of plantation shutters in the market, one of the most popular types is the wooden plantation shutter. Wooden shutters provide a feeling of warmth and coziness to a home. However, wooden plantation shutters are considered to be the more expensive option because their prices are significantly higher than other types of plantation shutters. As a result, people often look at alternatives to wooden Plantation shutters.

I am also interested in your roman shade pattern, if you don't mind sharing it.

I agree wholeheartedly with Jeri...your site is just wonderful. I'm so thankful that I came across it! What a bunch of fun, wonderful patterns and ideas you have here. I originally was looking for a toddler apron pattern, and yours is perfect for the Japanese fabric I just ordered. Thank you very much for all the hard work and effort that went into this site!
