I found these vintage blue shutters while antiquing one day for $15.00 a piece. 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.
