This project is what I call a shutter headboard. The name says it all. I took four shutters that you would normally use for your windows on the outside of your home, spray painted them, stenciled an elegant design, and hung them behind my bed as a headboard. It was a really simple, affordable way to transform shutters into something that looks a lot more sophisticated. My room consists of a Paris theme with three of my walls painted the light purple that you see in the photo and the fourth wall a dark purple. Throughout my room I have mostly black accents so that's why I went with spray painting the shutters a shiny black and the stenciling really popped against it. I'm thinking about adding a strand of lights along the edge of the headboard, but that's still up for debate. Check it out and I hope you're inspired to make your own!
