I used my Dremel and skimmed the edges, slats and varying places in between. Then I used Walnut Distress Ink to "stain" the areas where I sanded. I didn't redo the hinges...I should have. And will. But, it will have to wait until the weather is good again.
Sweet, simple, inexpensive...
To which my son said, "oh wow...what happened to that thing?"
And I replied, "I sanded it to look like that."
On his heel he turned and offered, "well it looks kinda old!"
=) What a great perception for a 6 year old. (=
I like it but am thinking at some point it may become a different color. But, for now...it works great like it is!! I love shutters. Hope you like it too.
