Make your own charming window shutters - Vintage News Junkie

Add vintage charm to plain windows with these sweet window shutters - by Vintage News Junkie featured on I Love That Junk

If you have plain windows that need a dash of instant character, make your own charming window shutters! From Ikea bed slats no less...

Candace had some pretty traditional windows in her kitchen and desired to add some character.


Add vintage charm to plain windows with these sweet window shutters - by Vintage News Junkie featured on I Love That Junk

Using Ikea bed slats, she created these super sweet wooden shutters, and coated them out with a bright white for true cottage charm. But this wasn't her first go around... they use to be yellow... then blue! Nice to know decorator morphing isn't just in my house...

Why I LOVE this:

I have a soft spot for white shutters. These so closely resemble my huge old gate screens I made for my picture window. Now I want to make little ones for my kitchen to match these! This is such an easy and quick fix to add vintage charm to any window of any age.
