Tiny Basement Window, Revisited

Several months ago, I tackled the problem of the window in the basement.  You may recall I started with this tiny egress window:

I put clear contact paper on the window to diffuse the late afternoon light that angled into the room and to offer some privacy.  I wanted to visually lengthen the window with curtains and to break the expanse of the long wall.  I found some exterior shutters at ReStore.  Although it wasn't what I had in mind, it worked for the interim.

While Mr. Tallgrass was dumpster diving for this chest of drawers, he noticed some pretty good looking plantation shutters at the curb as well so he tossed them in the car for me.  I did a happy dance in my car when I opened the garage doors and found them sitting in my bay.  It was just what I had been looking for!
