I found some old shutters at ReStore (the habitat for humanity thrift store) last week. I am in love with this store! I've got lots of other projects coming up with crap I found there! ;) Including WEDDING stuff! Yes, I am officially deocrating my first wedding this fall! Woo hoo! Ok, back to the shutters... the tall one was $15, short one was $10. They are folded in half in this pic, so they open up to twice the width. I didn't know exactly what I wanted to do with them until I saw this picture on pinterest!I painted them with a robin's egg-type of aqua paint I already had. After it dried, I brushed antiquing glaze over the whole thing. The chips in it happened by accident, because of the type of finish on the shutter before I painted them, when I was wiring the pictures to it some of the paint shipped off. That's one of the best things about shabby chic. Accidents look purposeful! :)
