Once upon a time, I found some old shutters at Habitat Restore. (For real, it was around May of last year) I had so much fun with my first project, my old pink shutter, that whenever I find shutters anywhere I grab them! Here you see this shutter looking so lonely and bare on the old shower curtain I use for painting in the backyard.
Here is the paint to give it a new life! This is my youngest daughter's favorite color and, how convenient, that it comes in a spray can?
I sanded the shutters a bit then sprayed the paint right on - no priming, or any other prep work. Sweet! Added some knobs and drawer pulls I also bought at Restore - they were $1 each. Here is my favorite one. I think it would be so cute on a little boys dresser or maybe even whitewashed or glazed or painted!
Well, here it sits by the back door ready to get loaded into the car with tons of other stuff and travel with Julia to her college apartment. I wish I had a picture to share of it with her jewelry because it looks really great. She was sweet to send her Mom a picture but Mom lost it somewhere in her computer.
I will get another one and add it soon!
She has earrings hooked over the shutter slats and necklaces/bracelets on the knobs and handles. The upside down pull holds her earring studs. And she has pictures tucked into the slats. Oh - I hope to share a picture soon!
And her friends loved it so much that I have made 3 more jewelry organizers (and they are not all shutters) I hope to share those soon!
until next time!
