What I’m painting….this week!


After moving the new

table in to the dining room I

decided to lighten

things up

 and paint one of the grey


white shutter 001


grey shutters

Here they are before……

white  shutter 003

And now after……

white  shutter 008


I decided to only hang one

shutter back up……I also only painted one shutter.

 If I tire of the white I can always

hang the other grey shutter back up.


Hope you will consider

following me

on Google Friends Connect

or with the new

 Linky Follower option….

Des, I love your shutter! I have one over a bed. They make such an usual decorative accents! Your shutter looks lovely! What a gorgeous room!

I like that - I'm into "cleaner and lighter" myself! Still drooling over your dining room table! Linda

BTW, where did y'all get the legs for the table? Linda

Kelly said...

I love both ways actually. It's always fun to make a change though. I know I do that regularly! I like how you used them on the wall like that.

Loving the whole room. I love old shutters too:)
Happy Weekend to you

Hi Des,
That is a good idea, just to use one at a time, then swap one out for the other. Even though it is white on white, the shutter has the texture and interest!
Looks fantastic!
Have a great weekend...
All the Best,

What a clean, fresh look, Des. I do like the gray, too, so I can see why you kept it. Have a great day!

I am following you on Linky Followers; would you kindly follow me, too?

I love olden shutters so much and buy every one I find. Just not finding many these days.
Yours looks great, white or gray.

Hi Deserae ~ love the shutters; I've been a hunt for a few myself lately. :)
I followed you via Linky Followers -- my GFC will be gone next week, so I'd love it if you'd follow me via LF instead.
Happy Saturday!

Deserae, your shutter is very pretty. Good idea to only hang the one you painted.

I love them both ways Des! It's good you have the two because you can change them if you want.

Found your dining-room feature at Savvy and it's just gorgeous, the whole room looks great. I love both shutters, but it's nice to change things up once in a while, isn't it. Love your whole house actually so following you on both gfc and the Linky - really we have no idea what is going to happen, do we !!!

Thanks for the inspiration!

Good idea to have the versatility of two different colored shutters, Des! I have always loved your dining room. :-)
