I bet you are expecting a Halloween post huh?
I was back in the bathroom this weekend. Besides being in the girls room also. See I got this....
So I got these....
8.00! I looked at these new online for about 150.00 for that itty bitty window. Pffft! I almost gave up the idea of having these in the bathroom. When I was growing up we had these in our main bath and I really liked them. But not in bright 1970 aqua like we had.
So I spray painted them....
Why spray paint? They looked like a real PITA to paint with a brush and I was just too lazy. After I sprayed them I brought them in to my hi-tech painting area and went to work. I lightly sanded them to distress them a bit and then wiped on watered down dark brown craft paint.
You can see each of the steps here going from right to left. Then I hinged them together so if by some miracle they ever are opened they will fold up accordion style. Then I hinged it to the inside of the window frame. I won't try to explain how I did this cause I gave new meaning to the saying "monkey screwing a bowling ball". Not real sure what I was doing but I got it done!
So... what do you think of the new treatment?
I'm not too sure about the shabby look of the shutters though. I am still trying to decide if I like it or should paint them the same at the trim.
Posted at Metamorphosis Monday and I apologize that I am such a dork! I forgot to change the title from the faux countertops to this shutter one.
