Today's post is about a simple project. I purchased a shuttered swing door at the salvage yard. I loved the shape of the top of it. I added a simple applique wreath and painted the shutter with Rustoleum brush-on colonial red. I wanted texture to the paint so when I applied my Jacobean Minwax stain it would stick and give some character to the shutter.
I kept the stain heavy on the sides of the slats to give it an aged look. I love this fall wreath hanging on the shutter, but it would look great with a white shabby mirror or some Christmas greenery as well. Below is the before shutter after the applique was applied with 5-minute epoxy.
