Garden Art Re-Purposed Wood Shutter

To create a little whimsy and a lot of color to our side yard, we spray painted old wood shutters.
Re-purposed old shutters for added color
We added a seating area to enjoy a cup of coffee
This is the before. Well...after all the weeds were pulled.
The shutters before they were scraped.
Put on several coats of Primer because the wood was so old it soaked up the paint.

    These are so great. Especially for breaking up a large space so it feels more intimate.
