Shutter Envy

That's what you'll have after I tell you how much I paid for these beauties! My mouth almost hit the floor when she told me the price at the counter... don't know about you, but when thrift stores/garage sales don't have their things marked they are usually expensive or I'm too scared to ask- I know I'm lame and shy. :) This time I'm glad I asked! And I may now be encouraged to ask every time...

79 cents!!!!
that's $1.58 total $1.71 if you guesstimate WA sales tax in there (No clue what I actually pay now, I need to stop moving!)

Seriously.  That's less than $2 for this delicious soon-to-be-something-great-in-my-house.  Shutter envy I know!

And here's where you come in...

I have Shutter Envy with all of these amazing shutter projects...

This one from Tortoise and the Hare...

And because of my terminal rental status, I can only dream of this one found at Olive and Love...


Love what Paisley Wallpaper did with her shutters here.

And what Allison at A Glimpse Inside did with her shutters- love the color contrast!

Or this creative clutter hider at Crafty Nest...

Or this great message board at How Does She?

Now I have some serious shutter envy! I could go on and on, but Target is calling and I must respond!

What to do, what to do...  Thoughts?

Great deal on those shutters! Can't wait to see what you decide to do with them.

I LOVE that wall of shutters! AWESOME!

And thanks for sharing my shutters and for your sweet comment about them.

Excellent blog! I am a shutter importer here in the UK, and I've been really excited by the interest surrounding shutters. I realise that these blogs essentially are trying to advise on how to get the same look of the product cheaply; however, these ideas have inspired me! I love the photo of the wall covered in shutter panels... maybe we'll dress our showroom with all the mis-measures!
Our site is www.londonblinds.co.uk/plantationshutters. If anyone needs advice (or even price), I would be happy to provide it free of charge if you mention this blog post.

Loving these ideas! I have several sets of shutters that I had no clue what to do with them.... Can't wait to try some of these out. (I LOVE that wall of shutter too, but the big guy would never go for that! LOL)
