Inspired By Shutters and Burlap



I needed something on the wall above my desk area, which is in my living room.  Since it is the living room I wanted it to look somewhat attractive and not to office-ish (try saying that 3 times fast).  I love how the Nester uses shutters in various places in her house and I thought that would work perfect in this space.  I found these shutters at the Habitat store for $10 and painted them red.  Then I added the picture frames, which I got from Goodwill for $7 for all 4 of them.  The iron shelves came from Pottery Barn Outlet several years ago.  Then I ran across this burlap wreath on Where the Heart Is.  So simple and inexpensive, right up my alley!  And there you have it, shutters and burlap!

  5. Love it! I made a heart shaped burlap wreath for Valentine's, and now after seeing several round ones I wish I had just done that so it could stay up longer. Thanks for sharing!
