Do you remember the .50 shutters I got at the yard sale in August 2010? Of course you do. I know you’ve been wondering and worrying and wringing your hands about what I would do with them. Well, today is your lucky day.
First, give them a good hosedown in the shower. Smile smugly when the neighbor kids ask why your mom has shutters in the shower and your kids just shrug and keep walking as if nothing is out of the ordinary. Love them.
Gather a bunch of paper plate holders you got at the thrift store for 10 cents a piece. Go raid your spray paint stash for colors that might work.
I don’t always spray paint on Saturday mornings, but when I do, I make sure I look my best in my paint respirator
Spray paint the shutters white.
Spray paint the plate holders lots of fun colors. Maybe a kind-of ombre look would be nice.
Hang up the shutters.
Hot glue the plate holders on top in a random, cascading pattern.
There you have yourself a nice above-the-bed art piece in your daughter’s room for $3.60!
Okay, so maybe it’s not under an hour, but it was under $10. Fair enough? Let’s get this party started!!
