It only took me 2,472 coats to paint...

these old shutters.

Okay. Maybe not that many coats. But it sure felt like it.

I have been hanging on to these old, antique shutters for years and years. I have a total of only three pairs. Two of the pairs hang in my keeping room windows. All painted black. None of them are the correct size for my windows but I don't give a rat's patootie. I love them.

So I decided to hang the last pair in our newly updated bathroom.

Sure I purposely bought pretty buffalo check fabric to make a curtain for the bathroom. But I didn't realize how dark it would still be in there.
It's like a lovely bear cave with beadboard and a pedestal sink.

I then
foolishly lovingly thought my sweet hubs wouldn't mind taking the time to gently pull one side of the curtain back, and neatly wrap the cute little button tie back I made and button it in place.

Well, the first few times he "gently pulled one side of the curtain back, and neatly wrapped the cute little button tie back I made and buttoned it in place."

The next few times it was haphazardly pulled back and the cute little button tie back was wrapped around the curtain like a bungee cord.

I knew it was time for a change when I saw the curtain off the window, across the chair and the tie back was laying on the floor.

I must say at the expense of my sweet hubs I had a good belly laugh when I saw that.

That was my ah-ha moment! The last pair of antique shutters will go on the bathroom window!!
How difficult can that be for him?!

Hey Ali I must confess, I had no idea what the heck song that was. So I Googled it. ((hee-hee)) Never been much of a Jazzie J fan. Or is it J Zee Willikers? Make that Beyonce's hubs. :> )

Thanks, Francine. It's the perfect "farmhousey" look. (I know "farmhousey isn't a word, but you know what I mean.)

((giggle)) Peachy, my hubs is too much of a sweetheart to get all He-Manish on the shutters. Not to mention I'd get all "Skeletorish", if he did. ((hee-hee))

Ha Ha. Your sweetie did exactly what I would likely have done! Too much trouble. Besides, if there is a light in the bathroom, why bother with tying back a curtain..use the light.
I do like the idea of the bear cave though!!
