Decorating With Shutters

CIMG0313I have been in search of shutters for quite some time now and finally found some.  They are pure love.  There is something about the hunt of a thrifted item that makes my heart swoon.  Finding that gold nugget hidden away waiting for you to come swipe it up.  Yet another reason why I love the thrift store and white spray paint.  CIMG0311 Do you have an item you have been hunting for?

  1. A bigger item, yes. A corner cabinet for my dining room. I just took shutters down from the windows flanking my fireplace. I wasn't planning to put them back up. Maybe I'll use them for something else now.

  3. Right now we are on the hunt for a coffee table that can take a beating from the little guy. But I'm always on the hunt for a cloche...but I can never find them :(

  4. I'm not a very good thrifter - the thrill of the hunt is still there though. I just have three kiddos that aren't as patient at stores as I could be. I do think white paint is the best!

  5. YES! I have a whole list. :) Looking for items in a thrift store really teaches you patience b/c you have to wait to find just what you were looking for. ;)

  6. Yes, I do. Used to have a mental list, but I forgotten most of the items (old age). I am going to keep a notebook in my purse to keep a list safe. I'm glad you found the shutters because they look great. Right now, I just have yarn scraps on my list.

  9. Ya know what, honestly I have never seen shutters in decorating that I loved until I saw yours. Seriously, I love that vingette you did! Super super cute. Love it!

    I'm way on the hunt for armoires/cupboards, crocks, white pitchers and cake plates, lamps and fruit jars (like Mason, Ball and Crown). So many things. :) Too bad the thrift stores and online selling auctions are always so overpriced here. Ugh. Dying for yardsale season!

  14. How timely-I just recently purchased a shutter just like yours at the Habitat Restore, for $3. I had also been looking for one to hang in front of an odd window that needed slight privacy, but provides great light. works perfectly, and I decided not to spray it-I'm loving the "shabby" look!

  15. The shutters look great, Ashley. I have been on the hunt for a dresser/armoire/hutch to use as a changing table with no luck but now I think my husband is going to build one! Fun! Kelly

  17. I recently was on the search for shutters myself to cover an entire wall. I found a lot at my Habitat for Humanity Thrift Shop and by posting a want ad on Craigslist.
