Shutter Project

This project was a lot of fun, and I learned quite a bit doing it.  I learned, buy the shutters on the first trip to the Habitat store, so you don't have to load up all the kids and bestie to make them drive with you to the end of the Earth and back twice!!!  Lesson learned.  I also learned don't over spray the primer and shake the can really good! 

Here they are home from the Habitat store, $20.  (unless you count the gas from both trips, then add another $20, sigh.)

Added a little detail, had to dress them up.

Primed

Painted Aqua.

Glazed black with a some jewelry added, yes the knobs are the jewelry.

Close up of the jewelry.

Family photos.

Almost done.

Done.

It her new home in my loft office. 

This piece means the most to me of all the pieces I've finished.  The pictures of loved ones, displayed where I can see them everyday, and not just living in a box in my closet.
