I picked up a couple large bi fold doors awhile back at the thrift store and plans for them to be a partition in my shop. That didn't work out so I decided to paint them and use them as "shutters" on either side of my french doors in my family room. I painted them with a 2 part technique to make them look "weathered". The rest is on the blog post. (plus a sneak peek of what else I've been working on! ;) )
Bi fold doors ---> turned into "shutters" for my family room french doors.
$5 bi fold doors from the thrift store--before
I used a 2 part process to create the weathered look I was after using Latex and Chalk Paint®.
"Weathered" shutter -- Latex as the first coat, Chalk Paint® as the second.
"Shutters" placed on either side of the french doors. Follow up pictures on the blog as the room comes together.
