Serendipitous Shutters

buttonwithstarfish Welcome once again to Transformation Thursday! It’s the one day of the week we all get together to celebrate getting stuff done. No matter if you’ve been coming around for quite a while or this is your first time, everyone is welcome to share their projects, big or small. Just link up at the bottom of this post.bathroom curtains cropped Rooms are never really “done” around here. Like nevah-evah. And that’s ok – I like tinkering with my home. Remember those ruffled curtains? Even though I love them, they’re just a tad too girly for Mr. SCC – and I can understand that. He does live with a house full of girls. Silly, giggly, girls. He let me have my ruffles, even though they weren’t really his “thing.”

I do the decorating around here – he’ll tell you that. He is such a sweet fella that he builds whatever pops into my little head and then moves on to the next project. This time, the project I had in mind was a compromise without him even knowing it :) Shutter WindowAfter the bloggy breakfast and Goodwill trip, ChaCha and I, with husbands in tow (well, they were the drivers), went to the ReStore. I bought a  shutter for $4 – and wasn’t even sure what I would do with it at the time. When I got home I wondered if it would fit our bathroom window – and guess what? It did!Install a plantation Shutter Mr. SCC added a little frame to the window trim, to pull the shutter out from the window so that the louvers would open and close, then used a couple of hinges to put it up with. Luckily I had some pre-painted pieces that were left over from the bathroom, so I didn’t even have to break out the brush!Plantation Shutter It may not be as girly, but it definitely sings to my cottage loving heart!

OH! Before you run off, make sure to enter the $50 DaySpring Giveaway!

  1. The shutter looks great!! How awesome is that that it fit! Thankfully my hubby lets me do all the decorating too. I don’t know what I would do if he were one of those guys that had to be involved in the decor in the house!

  2. Hello Gina,
    Thank you for hosting this party! Happy to celebrate my very first link-up with you.

    have a lovely weekend

  5. Gina, I love the shutters, I hardly ever go to the restore, but I have got to put it on my list!!! I linked up, thank you so much for hosting, even when I am not posting I love to see all of the creative projects and get ideas. I bet I am the only link today that turned a gun rack into a paint rack LOL!

  6. The shutter looks so clean and bright and airy in there, Gina! I loved the ruffles, too (what girly-girl wouldn’t???), but the shutter is very beachy looking! Nice work!

  7. I’m not too much a girly-girl, I think I like the shutter better.

  8. Hi Gina! The shutter looks great, and it’s nice have considered hubby’s feelings about the ruffles. Thanks for hosting. This party is always inspirational.

  9. Ooo, I like the shutter!! I liked the curtain, too. My husband has his say about my decorating as well, but he usually makes sense: except when he wanted his deer head in the living room. Really, now! :S Thanks for hosting the party! Always sooo fun!!!

  15. Wow! Four dollars, really?! The shutters look great (although I l-o-v-e the ruffle curtains) and i can totally relate to a hubby who’s too rugged for frill everywhere. :)

  16. No! Not the ruffly curtains! The shutter looks great but I LOVED those curtains. Any chance they will be going in your Etsy shop??

  17. LOVE-ing the ruffles! Thank you once again for hosting, have a wonderful weekend.

  18. WOW! love the ruffles and the shutter! I’ve been searching highs and lows in my local town for 2nd hand shutter to use it just like you did but no luck so far!! I’m like you, my husband doesnt really like girly things and sometimes says NO whenever I propose something to add to my house, at least your husband is helping you eventhough it’s not his thing! lucky!! sometimes I just did it without his consent and he just have to put up with me hahaha…Thanks for sharing and hosting the great event! x
