Bi Fold Doors Re-purposed to "Shutters" {Annie Sloan Chalk Paint}

DIY on Mar 20, 2016

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! ;) )
Difficulty: Easy

    Thank you @Angie ! I actually have a smaller set I've just painted and am using in another room in a little different way.

    In our previous home, two of the bedroom closets had the shutter type doors and they were a pain in you know where to paint.

    I'm dying to try Annie Sloan Chalk paints...I guess I have to purchase them on amazon as I can't find a retailer anywhere near my location. Where do you get yours from? Love the shutters...awesome color!

      @Carolann I have a local retailer now but I used to purchase online from Robyn Story Designs. They are WONDERFUL!

      @Diena Cameron Yes, I sure did. :) I have a blog post about it over on my blog ... www.artsychicksrule.com ... it was originally wood, then I painted it red, then I used a 3 paint process to paint it this blue. :)
