Shutter Project...DONE!!!

As promised, I came home from school and got busy on my white shutters.  It was SO hot!  Andy would say his 2 hour tennis match was really hot...but...I was having to smell spray paint fumes, right?  I win!

Here are pictures of the process...

Here's what I started with...


I spray painted them red (like the red of my desk chair).  I didn't worry if the white was not completely hidden...


Because I took sandpaper and rubbed off the edges anyway...


After the sanding...


Next, I strategically placed some clips that I had purchased at Office Max earlier today.  I went with a mixture of stainless steel, black, and white clips.


Then I added pictures.  I went with all black-and-white pictures for this shutter...


And I obviously chose full color pictures for the other--yes, the pictures are COMPLETELY random. :)


I still didn't feel like they looked quite right, so I added a few of my favorite words to the mix...


Notice I used the word "boze"--Andy's nickname that I have taken as my own. :)


Finished!!!  Where will I put these puppies? No clue!  I thought I wanted them propped up on my desk, but they are too tall. :(  Never fear--I will figure something out!

Last but not least, I'll show you my inspiration for this lil' project...the idea came from the Better After blog (love!). 


How did I do?  Close?  Even if not, I'm still okay with the outcome. ;)

Have a great night!
