Shutter Love

Happy Friday!!  I found these shutters at a local estate sale.  I love shutters and all the different ways that you can use them!  I have seen them used as memo boards, headboards, shelves, and even magazine racks.  Here is a before picture of my shutters.
I gave it a good cleaning and then sprayed it with Krylon's "Ivy" spray paint.  I chose not to distress the shutters.  I wanted to display them on my mantel as I've seen others do.  I added a valentine banner and a love sign.  It will be fun to change out the decor as the seasons change.  Here's my after picture!
Enjoy your weekend!
Thanks for visiting!

  7. I really love this! The shutters look so much better than that dark brown. I like stain, but you just really gave them life. I am going to follow your blog!
