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

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

    Cyndi Moore Tippett for this project I used Latex and Chalk Paint. I have to order both online. You can look for retailers, you may have one close to you. For chalk paint, anniesloanunfolded.com and milk paint, missmustardseed.com

    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!
