Vintage Blue Shutter Project

Vintage Blue Shutter Project

July 31, 2019

Ann

I found these vintage blue shutters while antiquing one day for $15.00 apiece.  This is one of my favorite colors to decorate with.  It's like a teal blue, which is such a warming color.  I didn't know what I wanted to do with them just yet until I got them home.

 

I found this vintage mantel that we installed in our dining room area on Facebook Marketplace a few months ago and the small vintage teal prints from an estate sale.  I thought the rustic shutters would add some more warm detail and texture to the still open space below.  To see how we installed this vintage mantel, click here.

 

 

I sanded each shutter down for a distressed look then sealed them with Polycrylic to keep that chippiness in tack.  Polycrylic is what I use to seal almost everything I work on!  And it only takes about 1 minute to dry!

 

 

 

I simply hung each shutter with a single nail on each side of the vintage mantel.  I hope you like how it turned out!

 

 

 

 

 

 I found this adorable french marketplace basket while antiquing.  It looks so cute filled with white seasonal hydrangeas.

Do the photos look a little crooked to you?  They're really not:))  Our dining room is on an angle with our open kitchen, so nothing is ever really taken straight on...
