Whatever your stance is on shutters, you’ll get a kick out of Instagrammer @thecraftsmanblog’s posts calling out total shutter fails. The Craftsman Blog is run by Scott Sidler who is a historic preservation contractor and self-proclaimed "Teacher of doing it yourself!," according to his Instagram account bio. Every week, in what the he has deemed #ShudderSunday, he posts photos of hilarious shutter fails from “under shutters,” to awkwardly sized shutters, to windows with only one shutter. Each post is accompanied by Sidler's delightfully exasperated commentary, which makes the photos all the more hilarious.

The account recently went viral on Twitter, and people can’t get enough of Sidler's photos. Some even shared bad shutters they’ve personally witnessed in response, including one home with shutters on the garage door instead of the windows (as Sidler would say, "???"). Others chimed in to agree with how unacceptable the shutters showcased on the account are. There were also requests for non-functional balcony shaming.

The account reminds us of one of our most beloved design blogs, the cult favorite McMansion Hell, which similarly lampoons entire houses with questionable design choices. Clearly, as Sidler proves, there's more than enough shutter nonsense to merit them getting their own treatment. We'll be avidly following along for the next hilarious fails.
