RH Shutters…. oh my!

Restoration Hardware has come out with their new shutter collection. Wow! I love the new RH style; it’s very cool looking… and then you see the price. Starting at a mere $1,700! Yep… I did not add an extra zero to that number.

New RH style - shutters

Well, for the thrifty DIY’ers that’s a little more than most of us want to spend. But this is so easy to hack, all you need is Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan and wax.

The easy way is a combo of French Linen and Black Wax. Like we used on this table:

Or you can do a Graphite wash over French Linen and clear wax.

Or mix up a custom color like French Linen and Old White and add both black and white wax. No matter what your pleasure, there is always a great way to get the look for a lot less.

Use this hack, and you’ll get a shutter that looks like this! Then all you’ll need is hubs to build you a cabinet to put it on 🙂

Until next week.
