Do you have a favorite decor item you’ve used over and over? Here’s how repurposing painted shutters throughout our various homes over the years.
These shutters have a story.
But it’s one that I don’t know the origin.
When we lived briefly in a house just outside of Nashville, TN, before moving to Vegas, the previous owner left some items in the garage.
Trent pulled down these old shutters and I LOVED them!
I moved them to our Vegas house and have tried them on many walls, in many formats.
Staggered and Separated, but not as whimsically placed.
When I started hanging my painted window sign I made, I new I wanted the sign framed by these shutters,but the deep stained color wasn’t working.
So I painted them.
I got out my creams and whites in my craft paints and played around.
I basically fingerpainted them!
Using sandpaper, I started to distress them here and there.
Adding some antiquing glaze gave them an old weathered and distressed look.
I made it a point to weather where hands may have worn away the paint from years of use. Hanging them over my faux fireplace completed the look.
I think it compliments the window sign nicely!
When we first moved to our Almost Farmhouse, we repurposed painted shutters over our sofa. They helped hide our door that we eventually removed, but I wanted something to frame our TV on the opposite wall.
I love the look of the shutters next to our Entertainment Center.
I embellished the shutters with a wire wall hanging from Hobby Lobby.
Repurposing Painted Shutters has been so style. Sometimes your favorite things just need to find the right place over and over again. Don’t be afraid to rearrange to your hearts delight!
We’ve repurposed them again! Since moving to our Meadow Brook Home, you should see what we’ve done with them!
