Shutters for Home Decor

So glad that you have all come for a visit. I have been steadily been busy doing some small projects around my little nest. I have really enjoyed decorating with shutters, doors, and windows. Especially those that have a great chippy patina.
If I can’t find the patina that I love on  these items then I create it myself, and this is just what I did with these shutters that I showed you in a post a while back.bucket shutters

Here is a before picture of the two shutters that I created a new patina on.


Here is the after pictures. I couldn’t have ask for a better crackle and chippy look.

Here is the other side of the wall vignette.

I had a shelf that my son Nathan built for me many moons ago and it was perfect to go on top of my vintage screen that is lined with a lace curtain.

I have not liked anything that I have put up on this wall for the past 2 1/2 years and I finally feel like I have finally got it like I want , other than I am looking for a new picture to go into the antique frame. I have an idea of what I am going to do with it so I’ll be showing you that soon.


A picture with the entire wall.


A couple of terracotta angels that I painted white top off the vintage books. I love using old architecture as well, see the white book ends on each side.


A Joey flower with angel wings, sticks and pine cones add to the effect for texture.


Here is a sweet vignette that I made up with a Roman bust, antique alter candle stick, a little burlap and basket of flowers on a chippy old chest. (I get the candle stick holder in 2 weeks)!!!!!


I had two large white shutters that I used on each side of my primitive cupboard. It seems to finish off the wall.


Well that’s it for now. I hope that you all enjoy a lovely summer weekend where ever you are in this beautiful world. We are celebrating Pioneer Day in Utah on the 24th, so that should be fun. Until next time.

  1. You achieved a beautiful chippy patina on the shutters-will you be posting how you did it? I love the use of the wall brackets to ‘frame’ your books and angels-very clever!


  2. Oh Jo,
    Everything looks just lovely. I love how the shutters turned out. I too like to decorate with shutters and the chippier and more weathered the better 🙂 Wishing you a wonderful weekend.



  3. Wow, wow, wow! I love the patina you created on the shutters, absolutely fantastic! And your wall pure gorgeous. I know you must truly be happy with it all. I know I would be beaming ear to ear! I love the wings too, and the sign and how you have everything arranged. Love it, love it, love it all! As to your question, no I don’t have an online shop at the moment as everything is going toward my booth.


  4. So beautiful Jo. You know how I love a great shutter or two. You made these two look awesome.
    Great job. Have a great week end.


  5. Everything you do looks like it belongs in a snazzy boutique Jo! What a fabulous job you did. Love the colors and that patina…oh my! Looking forward to the tutorial.


  6. I am always blown away by all the little details in your space. I know you don’t have much room, but it seems as though you have a big ol’ country farmhouse all to yourself. You should think about a new career as an interior designer!


  7. Hi, I popped over from the blog party and am so glad. These are gorgeous. Thanks for sharing!!!

  11. You are so amazing, Jo 🙂 Every little thing you touch becomes something beautiful. Thanks for sharing with Roses of Inspiration. Hugs to you!


  12. Jo, I love old shutters! I have been wanting a tall pair for a while. Actually had to pass up a pair twice. Wasn’t able to get them home. I love the crackle! Use to use that a lot, but haven’t used it for a while. Everything looks just gorgeous, as always! You have such a knack girl! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
