How To Make Word Art With A Shutter


I had a collection of wood shutters in my garage. It was time to do something with them. I cleaned them up and placed letters on top to see how it looked. Yes this can be artwork for your home.

I knew I didn't want the tilt rod to show, plus it interfers with the letters. I ran a bead of wood glue down the sides.

The next thing I did was cut a piece of wood, in this case it was from a pallet, the size of the long side of the shutter and placed where I glued. Then I used the brad nailer and shot some nails along the length of the wood.

I mixed up a batch of my DIY chalk paint and did a coat of white on all four shutters. Then I decided to paint each one differently.

The shutters that were going to have sea and sun were painted a bright, beachy aqua using my favorite recipe for chalk paint.

For the welcome shutters, I used the shells as my color inspirations and painted them with those colors in mind.

The sun and sea shutters were painted in the same colors but diffferent techniques.
