Weekend Projects

I'm officially tired! I have been busy as a bee all weekend. Yesterday, Craig and I went to an estate sale here in town and I found these two shutters for a dollar! I could not wait to get home to alter them. I had no idea what I was going to do with them but now I do..more on that in a minute. Then, I spotted a garage sale on the way home and I found a full size bed frame for $5.00! Oh boy! I needed one for the guest room project. So, I have been stripping paint from that bed, the shutters, painting, sanding, painting, sanding etc....all weekend and I am so pooped right now. I still want to distress the bed (headboard) some more. I also want to add some rose wallies to the back/inside headboard. There were little sliding doors but I did not want them...I wanted it open so that I could display things on this shelf of the headboard.

I decided what to do with the shutters. There are two of them (above is a before pic of one of them) (below is the after pic). I'm going to finish the painting....(kind of a distressed mint) and then I'm going to buy hinges and attach the two. This will then set on top of the dresser with vintage jewelry and maybe scarfs, hats, stuff like that hanging on it.

I have really enjoyed this redecorating project. Someday I will be done....then we will have to start another room. Oh, I posted a couple of new things of my Etsy today go and have a looksie! Hugs to all!
