Live Simply... A Simple Craft Project

I purchased this little shutter at a local barn sale. It was previously painted black and I just wasn't sure what I was going to do with it. But, I figured I would think of something. And why pass up a cute shutter if you have the chance to buy one for cheap? :)

One day I finally decided to give it a coat of Annie Sloan™ Old White paint. It sure brightened it up from the old black that was on there. And, suddenly, I got inspired!

I had made previously some burlap flowers with vintage buttons from a tutorial I'd seen on Pinterest. I pulled those out and attached them to the shutter. 

I loved the simplicity of this little project. So I decided to add some simple text too. :)

I used my scrapbook stencils to pencil them on and then painted over the pencil with Graphite. 

Hope you like it :)
