I’m so excited to share this project with you all! It was so easy to do and cost less than $20 to make!
My laundry room is my next big makeover (lots of fun projects planned!) The first thing to tackle was this window. I have always loved the simple shape of these shutters and I thought wouldn’t it be fun to do them on the inside of this room?.. Why not?
All you need for this project is some 1×4 boards, paint, nails, some picture hangers and you’re set!
So I set off to the Home Depot to get my supplies. I needed to have 6 boards cut to 3 ft. and then 4 boards cut to 12 in. I found some pine 1×4’s that were only $4.38 for 8 ft. I needed 3 of them to make all my cuts. The best part- they did the cuts for me! I heart Home Depot 🙂
I picked up the rest of my supplies and for less than $20 and I was on my way.
Having the cuts already done for me made it super easy.
First, I laid out all my pieces and gave them a coat of spray paint. One can was just barely enough to cover them all.
After they had dried I turned them over and set them up to be nailed together.
I wanted to make them look a little more distressed so I got out my can of gel stain and rubbed it on. You only need to apply a small amount to go a long way and then just make sure to rub it in fast before it dries.
I nailed the picture hangers onto the back and they were ready to hang!
I love the way these turned out and I’m excited to show you the rest of the projects I have planned for my laundry room, so make sure to check back!
