This past spring Tiffany & I took a trip to an area antique/flea market. I had a list of a few things I was on the lookout for and hadn't really found the right thing for the right price. That was until I spotted these beauties...
Okay so there's only one and it isn't beautiful!! I actually bought a pair of these shutters for $10 cobwebs & dobber nests included.
You see I had this long blank wall in my dining room that desperately needed filling.
I used my handsome helper to help me measure, level and hang them after spraying them with a quick coat of black spray paint.
And we used a very technical method of keeping even spacing.
Complete! Okay so I see the glare on the sides of the shutters where I should touch up the spray paint....but what is it The Nester says? It doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful, right?
So I plan to change this up seasonally and it currently looks like this...
So next time you see a pair of rusty, dirty, dusty shutters think about some way you can use them! Remember Tiffany showed us a cute idea to use a pair of shutters here.
