What do you do with old shutters?

6:00:00 AM

 "Mom, you'd love the shutters 
in the garbage next door."

 "Ahhhh! Hang up and go get them for me!... 

From that minute on, they were mine!

And then they were hanging on the window in my bedroom!

They are beautiful with old, chippy paint.

The antique hardware was still attached! 

Perfect against the sheer white curtains and 
crisp white wainscoting!

It was (free) love at first sight!
(and my husband even likes them!)
