My favorite-ist is this chippy old one I picked up last year at an antiques shop.
Just hung it and sighed in wonder.
I used it as the foundation for my header pic and button at my homeschooling blog the harvey files.
The other shutters I picked up at the ReStore. One I painted, sanded, dry brushed on some white and hung on the back porch:
Then there's the other two sets. The small set I haven't even cleaned the cobwebs from. Eewww. The second set I sprayed with heirloom white. Might distress and glaze later. They are adorning my mantle for the fall.
On the exterior of my house, the shutters aren't my fave, but after I painted them, they've grown on me. These shots are from last fall:
Here's what they looked like before. Ick.
Shot of the outside just the day of our inspection with the orange shutters and brown trim:
Last summer after I had just painted the house green, trim white and shutters deep olive.
So that's a wrap. How I do shutters. The end.
