Garden Shutter Message Center5:00:00 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.
I added DIY aged clothespins
to the shutter slats to hold cards and memos .
Another fun shutter project!
Stop by and see the shelving
I made with the matching shutter.
