Shutter project

I just love the idea of using shutters inside in different ways. Recently I found some exterior shutters for $1 each at a garage sale and bought 4 of them. I cleaned off 2 of them and distressed them with an electric sander. I couldn't decide what color to paint them so I left them black. Then I hung them on either side of a picture above my couch. I really like how the project turned out and it only cost $2! I put the other 2 shutters in the attic until I decide what to do with them. I might hang something on the shutters over the couch like sconces or a small shelf on each one to sit a lamp on. I'm not sure yet. I can't wait to show you the deal I got at a garage sale this weekend. You won't believe it! Tune in tomorrow!

Oh, how I love shutters! I keep my eyes open when ever I hit thrift stores. I don't have any as of yet, but that is ok, I will find just the right ones! :o)
Your shutters look cute on the sides of your picture and the plates above just pull it all together!!
