Dear Santa, Can I have assorted colors of Spray Paint in my stocking this year? Great. Thanks.



Hey everyone! Here's a fun quick piece of DECOR that is MUCH TOO FABULOUS!



I bought 4 very tall and large window shutters all for $8 at a yard sale this past summer. I ended up cutting them all in half making it $1 a piece!




I've transformed all but 3 of the 8 so far. Quick and simple! I take a can of spray paint (for the "undertone") and spray the edges where I know I'll sand it down the most so it will show through the top coat. {LET DRY}. Then I spray paint the WHOLE thing the color of my choice!



Such as a BLACK shutter with a RED undertone, or a RED shutter with a MUSTARD YELLOW undertone etc...



Then I took a drill and topped off my shutters with 3 hooks...


HOW GREAT IS THIS?


HANG IT BY YOUR DOOR AS A


COAT RACK/CHRISTMAS CARD HOLDER!!!



My living room was missing something...and this IVY LEAF GREEN with BLACK undertone shutter has completely won my heart!


WHAT DO YOU THINK?

Happy Holidays Everyone! And HAPPY BLOGGING!

Love this idea! Since I am a renter, my stockings take center stage on the floor in front of my tree becuase I don't want the extra holes in my walls just for stockings. But with one hole I could hang one of these and put 4 hooks for our stockings and a place to put Christmas cards! You are brilliant!

I love this idea, such a great way to repurpose those run down shutters. I would love to have something like that by my door for the holidays, thanks for the idea!

REally cute idea! Wish I could find some inexpensive shutters!

I'm wishing I would have thought of this a few months ago and took the shutters from my Grandma's house when she remodeled. Such a cute idea!

Lacy said...

ooh, what a good idea to use it for a card holder too. It's a multi-purposed coat rack.
