Dresed up Window

I was feeling the need to do a little re-modeling in my bedroom.
I had this window hanging above my bed already. As much as I loved the scrapbook paper behind the glass, I thought I would try it without. But I couldn't just leave a plain window up there.

I remembered I had these old shutters from the college days. We had them hanging by the phone and would write in numbers of our friends.
This was back in the day when people had home phones and you didn't rely on your cell phone to store all your numbers.

It was kind of fun looking back over those numbers...

I knew I wanted to do something fun with the shutters so I had the genius idea to use the shutters for what they actually were made for: windows!

I painted the shutters to match my vanity and hung them on either side of the window.

I liked it, but it was missing something. I added a few vinyl stickers and then found this garland that I had been keeping for no apparent reason! I hung it above the window and I really like the way it turned out!

So far I like it. I think I will work on some fun throw pillows next. Also, did you notice the new decorations on the side wall? New post on those coming soon!
