I’ve been working like a crazy woman trying to get a bunch of home stuff done before I start my new job on Monday! I don’t know why I do this – these projects have been looming forever – yet I suddenly need them all done yesterday.
I was painting the upstairs hall (“Dusk”) when I decided to paint the shutters I salvaged from a friend’s house the same color. I couldn’t bear for these shutters to get scrapped when she remodeled.. I still remember her directing me the first time I went over there years ago, it was “the house with the heart shutters.” I’ve always thought they were so cute and cottage-y.
I may eventually hang them up, but for now they sit flanking my bed.
I think this one on the left looks like it has an arrow through it:
They got so banged up during removal and I spent a lot of time cleaning dirt and spiderwebs off of them. But I did no sanding and just quickly brushed one coat of paint and they’re perfect.
I have a soft spot for any heart that’s been put through the wringer.
