Shutter Upcycled

Shutters remind of quaint cottages in beach towns where someday I hope to find myself living. But for now, I am stuck in suburbia. I found a few at a garage sale and sprayed this one blue. Not the blue I was going for but it was the only one on the garage shelf. I dry brushed it w/ white to tone it down and sanded to give it a more weathered look. Painted the words, Cottage...by the sea, while watching the Republican debates last night. Yup, who would have figured me for a girl into politics... my soon to be poly sci major son can take credit for that.
A starfish was added 'cause I just love them!

One more time...I want a beach house....someday :)
