Every once in a while I venture out of my hermit-like existence. I like home. I'm the epitome of the term Homebody. When I do make it out, it's usually to go shopping. I try to go with a purpose when I do shop. Sometimes, like last week, I just feel like wandering the aisles. Lucky for me, I did this at the local thrift instead of Walmart or Target. Also, lucky for me, they happened to have some interesting things. Like this sort-of-old shutter. It was marked $4. It really must have been my lucky day because all yellow tags were half of. Score! A $2 shutter!
My dear husband, if he were reading this, would roll his eyes and say... "Oh great, how I'm going to have an old shutter hanging around the garage." Well... to him I say... Ha! I actually did something with it! "It's a miracle", he says... I know him as well as he knows me.
I decided that I would take one of the designs I made for the November VDBC Grab Bag and make a Subway Art piece for Thanksgiving decor. SO, without further ado...
Today's project is... Subway Art on a Shutter
In all, it took two cans of paint to cover both sides of the shutter. I think it turned out quite nice! Since I wasn't planning to actually use this as a shutter, I didn't bother taking any of the hardware off. I just painted the whole thing. Remember, deep down, I'm lazy.
Subway Art- Thanksgiving design. This is only available as part of the November VDBC Grab Bag in case you were wondering.
I took each part of the design, sized it up, and moved it around so it would fit my shutter slats. I absolutely love how it turned out. Now the only question is... where to display it? It's in my entry way at the moment. I like it!
Time to get crafty, people!
