Shutter Make-over

My niece found some old shutters up in her attic and gave them to me to use in decorating.
Here's what they looked like originally:
 I painted them brown and distressed them with some black paint.
I took apart a floral berry pick and twisted it into two little wreaths to hang on them. 
Here's the arrangement I used them for in my living room.
I re-painted my shelf the same brown to match the shutters, and also repainted the framed embroidery to match the layout better.

You did a fabulous job with these shutters, Esther. I love seeing things repurposed like this. It inspires me to see 'junk' with fresh eyes.
Blessing hugs,

Awesome, Esther. I love how you can look at something and know what to do with it.
