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!
