Decorating with Shutters

If you've been following my blog for a while, you might remember when my sister snagged this beautiful group of wooden shutters for me at a garage sale...for $20!
 

I have used these 3 sets in very different ways.

The white ones hang in my dining room framing out a piece of art

Then I repainted the purple set in
"Shaded Lake" to use as a headboard in  

The last set was sitting in the garage until earlier this month.  I painted them in Antibes ASCP to use on my Master Bath wall.


There are so many ways you can use shutters in your home.  I'd love to come upon more of these since they add such beautiful vintage character to any space.

  19. They look beautiful, Miranda! I can't find a set of vintage shutters to save my soul around here. I must not be looking hard enough at auctions & yard sales! I love what you've done with yours, especially Elsa's headboard. Thinking of you this morning. Hope all is well! xo Jami

  30. That was a good representation on how to use the old shutters for interior decoration. The decoration was simple but looks pretty nice.
