Vintage Shutters Makeover

I’m ready to start decorating for spring! So this weekend down goes my winter stuff, and up with the spring. Is that too early? I love you winter, but I have plans for spring that I’m excited to get started on! I already have a wreath that I still love, so my focus will be my mantel. I found these neat shutters at the antique shop…

Wanna see what I did with them? It involves spray painting and stenciling…

I’m so in love with my new shutters! What do you think?

I made my word stencils with my handy dandy Silhouette. After spray painting the shutters, I painted on the words. I know I’ve said this before… I sure do love my Silhouette:D It’s a such a great tool to have around!

So that’s the first piece(s) to my mantel. I already started working on the second piece. You will have to wait for the next post to see it though:D

Have you started decorating for Spring?

Have a wonderful weekend!

Linking up at these parties.
