Saturday's Designing with Vintage No.11 Chippy Shutter

Welcoming 2016
Are you excited about the New Year? 

I am thrilled to get things rolling... 
I've been working on a clients home & we are finally getting to the finishes.
 I can't wait to show you the project before & afters when we are complete.

Meanwhile here at the French farm house renovation it's quite the mess!!!
 A good ole sawdust, paint, stone work, tile, flooring, trim best kind of mess. 

 Saturday "Designing with Vintage" No. 11 
at home...

Something utilitarian as a built in ironing board I would painted to match the trim work in the space.

We installed this one & it looked like a box on the wall, which it is... and boring at that!

I was scouting vintage doors & I found this vintage european shutter.

I fell in love with the winter white shade of chippy paint & rusty hinge. 

It appeared to be the perfect width.

I have a pretty good tape measure built into my eyes!

I LOVE it! 
A little trim on the bottom & some special sealer so the perfect little chippy paint won't chip of.
 I wanted to add some character to the face of the ironing board door and give it the look of
cute little cupoard.

Eventually this will be moved to the new laundry room. 
Next week I'll show you why!!!

Let's create & enjoy the beauty around us...

  1. I love it too Gail, and so wish you would a nice way of demanding, so we can, or I can enjoy the fruits of your labor.
    Love the shutters, and the hinges I have some just like them waiting to use them on something like hinging shutters.

    See you soon I hope? :)
