Well, in my landlord’s front yard, but in front of my apartment! Found these beauties beside the green bins, waiting for the trash man. Not a chance!
My landlord is a pack rat. Have I mentioned that? Well, he is, God bless his soul (now ain’t that the pot callin’ the kettle black!?). His pack-ratty ways have made it so that sometimes I don’t have to go very far to find my roadside (or garage or garbage bin) finds. When I peered out my front window this morning to see how blue the sky really was, these old bi-fold shutter doors were there waiting for me. And the potential headboard gods sang, “Ahhhhhh!”
Seriously, what says country cottage home more than white, chippy-paint shutters? Nadda! I’ve been hoping to find myself a set or two to implement into a headboard. Now, I know these are just old closet doors, but with a little love, distressing, and leveling out (see how one is taller?), I know these babies will look (not-so) fresh off the farm.
Stay tuned for unveiling! I just have to decide if they’ll be for this place… or the next! :D
ps: Need a visual of what’s to come? The coastal cottage goddess herself, Layla Palmer of The Lettered Cottage did a tutorial on ’em for HGTV; check it out HERE. There is seriously NOTHING that woman can’t do!
