Now that we'ere in August, (can you really believe it?!), it's time for some August diy projects! This is all about cute indoor shutters. It reminds me of something you'd see in a cute little kid's room. If the colors were bright like a pink or yellow, it would remind me of something from the islands.
gel stain (optional if you want to distress it)
some picture hangers
Cut 6 boards to 3 feet in length and then 4 boards cut to measure 12 inches. Depending on which home improvement store you get the wood at, they should cut these for free.
Lay out the pieces and paint. You can use spray paint just fine for this.
Lay the 12" pieces out and stack three of the 3-foot boards on there and nail. (Pictured is a nail gun, but you don't need a nail gun.)
This part is optional, but if you want to distress the look of your boards, you need to apply a little bit of gel stain. The trick for this is to apply just a little bit and to do it FAST BEFORE IT DRIES!
Attach picture hangers onto the backside and it's ready for hanging! A project like this shouldn't cost more than $50. In fact, you can expect to spend less than $30 for this. For more projects, click here.
