    Thank you It's a Happy Hutch (bought off ebay) and the paint is Wilkonsons own 'Willow' from their 'Colour your Garden' range. It's water based & so really easy to use

    I now have a combination of shutters & corrugated plastic. My set up is in the shade all day and so I don't remove the plastic on the run lid. I made the shutters for the the winter really but I'm still using some at night & they're good for blocking out driving rain

    These pics might help

    With!

    Can I ask how you attatched the corrugated plastic I think this is a really good idea but not sure how to fix it on

    It's just screwed to the lid. Make tiny pilot holes first with a very small drill bit & you have to get the smaller corrugated stuff (smaller bumps) or the doors of the hutch won't open over it They JUST skim the top I bought mine from Homebase. I then attached a wooden knob (screwed through from underneath) so I could still open the lid!

    The length was perfect but I had to reduce the width slightly
