Shabby Shutters

First ... i want to give you a view in my tv room
Don't you think this window looks a little bit empty? I do!
So....i bought some shutters....you see on the right.....not vintage...they are toooo expencive!!

What do you do when the sun is shining?......Painting outside!! (:o)
 First step....as on my dresser...a paint - wash...means mixing half paint and water
 After one coat..you see the different....the left one with paint...
 I used a sponge and coated both shutters, on both sides...twice
 Then...i sanded...slightly..and painted a third coat with paint (without water)
Drytime in...

...the sun

 Waiting for the finish near my dresser and my chandelier
As the white paint was dry.....i used an antiquing medium for the last finish
Here you see the  medium on the right




It looks better with daylight (:o)
Maybe i put some vintage cards for decoration on them.....or some cornucopias (:o)

Thanks for watching.......and a big thank you to my followers and readers, for voting on my entry on facebook in my last post. I really appreciate it.

....it's a Cornucopia Victorian Style!

I bought some beautiful lace in Lilla's Etsy Shop a while ago and now she came up with a little tutorial on
Just Lilla, how to make this cornucopia. What else could i do, as sewing this fabric cone?
I love her little and easy sewing ideas....
