Something New

Hi ladies, hope you all are enjoying this long weekend. My hubbie came home Friday night from California, and will be home for a couple of days.  Yesterday we went to my cousin's home for a 4th of July celebration, had a great time and really enjoyed the fire work's show!
I have been working on some project's using a couple of shutter's we had.

We had these shutter's in our bonus room for a couple of years, they were painted a different color and they were hung on both sides of the window's just like you would do on the outside of the house. I was tired of that look so I primed and painted them and had hubby hang them up side by side and bought the letter H for our last name and used double sided tape to hold it to the shutter's. Then, I went to Goodwill and purchased the picture frame's for .75, and painted the red ones and used tissue paper and mod podge for the other ones. I want to add some more frames, but have not had time to get back to GW.

This was my birthday present that my husband built me, it is also made out of shutter's. He used hinges on the back to hold them together, and then cut out the shelves out of 1x12 pine boards.  We got the shutter's from a house in our town that was being torn down. I used this to display some of my Mother's things.
Also, thanks so much for all the sweet birthday wishes!
love to all,
