Vintage Mini Summer Signs

Now that I have your attention... let me tell you how to 
create cute summer signs from vintage shutters.


This project began with a pile of vintage shutter slats and 
Fusion Mineral Paint in fabulous new colors... Seaside and Lily Pond.

I began by cleaning off the shutters and painting each one 
with one coat of the Fusion Mineral Paint. These colors
are perfect for the summer!

Using an oil based Sharpie paint stick I wrote fun summer words on each shutter... yep, pool bar was one of my favorites!

When the paint dried I lightly sanded the edges of each slat. 

The rough texture of the vintage slats gave the signs
a beautiful old distressed look.

I drilled holes in each sign and added a length of wire for hanging.

  3. Love your little signs. I'm curious--is the wire crimped like that originally, or did you do that crimping yourself. If so, how???
