Guest Blogging {Shutters}

Dear Santa, Can I have assorted colors of Spray Paint in my stocking this year? Great. Thanks.

Hey everyone! Here's a fun quick piece of DECOR that is MUCH TOO FABULOUS!

I bought 4 very tall and large window shutters all for $8 at a yard sale this past summer. I ended up cutting them all in half making it $1 a piece!



I've transformed all but 3 of the 8 so far. Quick and simple! I take a can of spray paint (for the "undertone") and spray the edges where I know I'll sand it down the most so it will show through the top coat. {LET DRY}. Then I spray paint the WHOLE thing the color of my choice!

Such as a BLACK shutter with a RED undertone, or a RED shutter with a MUSTARD YELLOW undertone etc...

Then I took a drill and topped off my shutters with 3 hooks...


HOW GREAT IS THIS?

HANG IT BY YOUR DOOR AS A

COAT RACK/CHRISTMAS CARD HOLDER!!!


My living room was missing something...and this IVY LEAF GREEN with BLACK undertone shutter has completely won my heart!

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

Happy Holidays Everyone! And HAPPY BLOGGING!

How did you get the cards to stop from slipping through the cracks. But a shutter today at the Re-store and a few will stay in place but most just slip right through.
