Garden Shutter Message Center

5:00:00 AM

This project began with a shutter and 
a few supplies from my junk stash...

This shutter will hold memos, cards, or pictures 
to keep life organized in the kitchen, office, or entryway.

I painted the shutter with Miss Mustard Seed
Milk paint in Curio and attached an old arched 
French garden sign to the top to resemble a roof.

A copper basket with a beautiful patina is 
attached at the bottom of the shutter.

I used Miss Mustard Seed Tough Coat to seal the milk paint
and darken the chalky milk paint color.

When the sealer dried I 
heavily sanded the piece to remove some
of the shine and to distress the slats.

Another fun shutter project!

  1. I love the color you painted it and it looks so wonderful with your garden sign as a roof, too cool!

  2. Love it! Wish I had one line this. :-)

    Hope your week is blessed...

  3. Love shutter projects- although if I have any more in my house I will look like a shutter project shop! The Le jardin sign is the perfect finishing touch!

  4. I love this! I have some old wood shutters that I found at an estate sale. I turned one into a photo display, and now I found a use for another. This would look so much better in our Texas room to keep business cards and notes on instead of the fabric covered bulletin board. Thanks for sharing! Pinning to my shutter board.
