Vintage Wood Shutters

I have shared with you how I love the color pink but I only use it sparingly.

Lately I have been smitten with this color.

I am not sure if it is because spring is here.


Now let me say I am not fond of all pinks.

There are some shades that speak to me.

They make my heart skip a beat faster.


Especially a vintage pink.

Its a bit faded and worn.

And when it is paired with white it is perfection!

Adorned with a chippy crackled paint from years gone by it is my very favorite shade of pink!


When I stumbled on this pair of vintage wood shutters I was not sure what do to.

Yes I fell head over heals for it but where would I put this new found treasure.

And then it hit me.

I have an open wall it is a square.

Looking in to my kitchen from my family room it was a bit boring.

Wish I had taken a before shot.

I thought I had one but sadly I don’t.


I love the look of the added shutters.

Gives this boring square opening some interest.

And it looks like an open window.

I added those single stemmed flowers for interest too!



After I took this shot I decided I did not like that small window hanging.

At first I thought maybe I would get a bigger window.

But I decided to take it down first and see how it would look with out it.

And for now I think it does look better without the window hanging.


Sometimes you need to live with something before making a decision.

And taking a photo of a new vignette or a change is good to do too!

Whenever I make a change I take a photo.

So many times I think something looks great until I take a photo.

As they say a photo is worth a thousand words……

I like how open it looks now.

If I get tired of the pink I can wash it with a bit of white to tone it down.

But right now I am in love with this color!

Visually it makes such an impact!

My newly found favorite salvage piece.

It is so nice to finally have an interesting statement piece on this wall.

    Fabulous set of vintage shutters!! They were made for that wall. You could even mount them with hinges so you could open and close them if you ever had a messy kitchen. Which I doubt. :)

    What luck finding those shutters. My family home had a front door painted the same soft pink. It is so soft and vintage, I love it. My Mom’s bedroom was always painted a soft pink too. Love this shade of pink too.

    They are perfect for the space Anne. Gosh…they look like they could have come off the same house the porch railing in my reading room came from! I love that kind of chippy too.
    hugs from here…

    Love the old shutter with all its chippy shabby goodness. Adore the space with the little window hanging but also like it without. Either way looks wonderful to me. Then again I have a thing for old windows. Visiting you from Met Monday, hope you come by for a visit too.

    Your shutters are adorable. How I would love to find a pair. I love the idea of the appearance of a window when there is none. GREAT idea!!
    Also..the shade of pink you chose is precious. It is my favorite shade too. I even bought nail polish in that shade and I don’t usually wear it. I do now! :) Thanks for the inspiration. I came over from Marty’s INSPIRE ME party.

    WOW, I LOVE the vintage pink shutters on the pass through! What a great idea… thanks for ‘passing it on…” I have a set of aqua ones and I’ve used them to cover up ugly cold air return vents (still lets the air through but definitely covers up the ugly!) Have a great day! Saw you at Savvy!

    come for a visit sometime,
