Funky Junk Wall Decor

 Donna over at Funky Junk Interiors always hosts a Saturday Nite Special link party and this weekend's topic is wall decor, so I thought I'd join in the fun and share a little much-loved  funky junk I use as wall decor.

I found these great  fabulous shutters at a yard sale a couple of years ago for $5.  I offered $3 and they took it!  I was in love...I woulda paid $5 in a heartbeat, but I can't resist haggling, 'cause once again, I'm cheap like that.  They have such a great patina!  Cracked paint everywhere and visible layers of paint underneath, lovely rusty hinges...the whole 9 yards!  (Sorry, no close up shots, I wasn't planning on blogging about them specifically and didn't take any)

Before we moved, they hung on the wall in the living room. 
(Everything was decorated for Fall in this picture.)



Now that we've moved to a different house, they've found a new home in our upstairs bathroom.  They're sitting on the bathroom counter, leaned up against the mirror.



The mirror is humongo, covers almost the whole wall above the sinks.  And since it's a rental house there's nothing I can do about that.  So I really like how the shutters help break up the expanse of mirror.  Plus, it gives me something to look at instead of just realizng that the baby left me a gift of pureed squash on my shoulder.


I hope you enjoyed my version of Funky Junk wall decor.  I can't wait to see what everyone else is sharing.

  5. I love your shutters! I saw the cracked paint in the background of another post you did on your 2 mini makeovers and wondered what that lovely authentically cracked paint thing was. Now I know - thanks for sharing! Great yard sale treasure. I like you have them displayed, too.
