Yesterday, I shared the Lowe’s Exterior Makeover Reveal with you, and today I wanted to show you how we made the board and batten shutters.
We had the most amazing team of Lowe’s volunteers to help with the makeover!
They helped us build, sand, and stain the board and batten shutters for Grant and Beth’s house.
Steve, the assistant manager, was helping us make the shutters, and I put him on the spot and asked him if I could video him making one of the shutters.
Without any practice at all, Steve whipped out this 3 minute video tutorial with complete perfection! He nailed it in one take!
As soon as he finished, all of the volunteers erupted in applause! It was so fun! I told Steve he was giving Mike Holmes a run for his money and that he was better than most guys on HGTV!
You are going to love this video tutorial! Steve does such a great job! :) Please give him mad props because he deserves it.
