I have a tiny, skinny window in my bathroom. Not being much of an exhibitionist, I prefer to have some kind of window treatment. It doesn't matter to me if I think anyone can see in or not, the night time black hole of Calcutta makes me uncomfortable...
I have a bunch of matching shutters that I bought at a garage sale 15 years ago. I use them in my bedroom as a window treatment for another oddly shaped window. There was an extra shutter more than I actually needed to cover the bedroom window, I had just never detached it from its hinged mate.
The shutters in my bedroom look like this:
Except I didn't want an orange wood shutter in my bathroom. Since I still have tons of creamy white paint on hand from my Master Bedroom Makeover Madness, I decided to paint the spare shutter. I didn't paint it well cause I wanted it to look like it was aged and beat. Then I took some acrylic paint in Raw Umber and wiped it all over the white paint with a paper towel. Very rough looking job I might add!!
And now I have a cute, functioning shutter for my tiny little window. Soooo in love with shutters :)
