Today I thought I would share with you my love for shutters and how I have used them around my house.
I have picked these up at garage sales or op shops.
Truth be told shutters are as rare as hens teeth in Australia and these would more accurately be called louvre doors, and would come from cupboards rather than windows.
These are the first ones I bought,
I had no idea what I was going to do with them,
but as soon as I got them home this idea popped into my head and here they have been ever since.
I had an old screen door metal insert and they just seemed to go together.
It makes me think of a little French bistro scene when I look at them.
Just on the weekend VCH put these up for me on the toilet window on the other side of the back door,
it balances it out nicely.
I am still after a lovely old bench to go at the back door, saw one at a garage sale recently- sadly it wasn't for sale, I am at the point of asking VCH to make me one!
I have had this single one hanging around for a while, moving from place to place, but for the moment it has found it's home in my lounge room.
This little one adds some interest on my veranda.
Though that plant is hiding my picnic baskets so it will have to be moved,
funny what things you notice when you look at photos!
Finally I am using this one to display some old family photos.
I hope you liked my little tour of the shutters in my home, I just love them to bits!
