Heart Shutters

A couple of months ago I scooped up these shutters free on a curb in East Nashville.  They are kind of cute and definitely country (which just happens to not really be my personal aesthetic).  I knew that I wasn’t planning on using them on the outside of my house, but didn’t really want to pass them up either.  I tend to do this a lot.  (Probably the definition of a hoarder.) 

 So after having them on the back burner of my crafting thoughts I finally decided to paint them.  I mixed up some of my left over Sun Ray and white paint and gave them a good white wash.  Or should I say yellow wash?

Any who- it’s hard to tell in the pictures but the texture and imperfect painting is WONDERFUL and I love them even more now with a rustic touch.  I am still undecided about where to put them in my house (possibly in my laundry room).   I have three more shutters just like them that I want to turn into a bench for my backyard.  I also was able to scoop up a vintage door (which is what the shutters are leaning on) that has way more charm that any of mine so one doorway in my house is getting an upgrade! 
Oh... p.s. There are 9 more days left in the GIVE AWAY!
