I took the catalog with me when I was getting the paint so I could come as close as I could. The name of this color is Pirate Coast by Valspar. It is a very beachy color and really would blend great with Rachel Ashwell's Shabby Chic look. I paired them with a shabby red bed in my space at Aubergine Emporium and I think that color combo looks great as well. Below you can see how it looks with the reds and pinks.
The door locks were taken off a project I recently did so they were freebies. We had the cross beams in the scrap pile. My husband did however purchase the bolts. They are decorative and functional at the same time.
Here are my inspiration shutters. They look really shabby and glazed in this photograph, but in the catalog, they didn't have that appearance. They were pretty clean looking.
Here are the shutters as I found them at the salvage yard.
Cross piece added with the bolts. All in all this was a super easy project. It was nice of my husband to drill all those holes to help me get my desired look. Thanks for visiting and please stop by again soon.
