When we went to Fredricksburg for our cake tasting we made a stop at Trade Days. I found some old shutters that were selling for $5.00 each and I grabbed 2 thinking there was surely something I could do with shutters.
I found a few ideas on Pinterest and my brain started working away. I already knew we wanted some sort of memorial at the wedding to honor our lost loved ones.
I loved this idea I found but Danny didn’t like the clothesline look.
The shutters were brown so I needed to paint them. I used white spray paint. It’s not easy to find a good painting day in Houston. It’s always humid and gross and that is never good outdoor painting weather. I had been waiting for the perfect day which happened to be Friday.
One of the shutters did a cool crackle effect all by itself. After the white paint dried I added a stencil on the top of each shutter.
