The _________ Were Hung in the Kitchen with Care...

If you missed yesterday's post, I described a thrifting find I was pretty giddy about, but I didn't reveal the item. I imagined you all shaking your computers shouting "What??? What is is?" like Rex on Toy Story.

Jeremiah hung my treasures last night, and I can't stop smiling at my new kitchen shutters!

If you missed my adventurous story of acquiring these fun shutters, you can read all about it here. Once I got them painted white, I was even more excited about the possibilities.

And might I add that spray painting would have been MUCH easier - but cheap Cindy couldn't justify buying white spray paint when she had lots of white paint in the garage. But painting all those little slats was a bit tedious.

We removed the mini-blinds and the curtain rod that previously covered this window. I do still need to remove some brackets, fill in some holes, and touch up the paint. But I love the light that now pours in the kitchen.

A cute little red pendant light over the sink might complete the space...and I will be on the lookout.

But for now...the shutters are hung in the kitchen with care, and I'm hoping the sunshine will keep shining there.

  2. We have shutters, too! They are nice privacy screens!

  3. Nice and they will match no matter what you do to everything else :) I like the fact you can see out while others can't see in ;)
