Fun and Funky and Beachy Headboard


How about a beach cottage named FLIP FLOP (Rented thruhttp://www.mermaidcottages.com/

We were fluffing and had a small budget. I had purchased a pair of old shutters from a friend who said "these look like jane coslick stuff"....she was right..... They would not be right for most places but this fun spirited cottage was the perfect home. We cut the shutters in half and screwed them to the wall to create a headboard. This is the Master Bedroom and it is a very comfortable and cozy space.

Do you put any kind of sealer on old chippy shutters like this? I'm working on a very similar project.
