Red Shutters in the Entry Way

This was a quick and easy project and I love the way it turned out!

I have been drooling over this picture on my Pinterest Boards for quite some time.  I tracked it down to the original source via Clarendon Lane and have found myself going back to it again and again.

Now on to My Spin of the Pinterest Pin:
My friend found some shutters at a garage sale months ago for $2.50 and had big plans to make them into a headboard for her lake house.  Well, as time passed and she found another headboard that she fell in love with she decided to gift the shutters to me.

She had even started to paint them and stopped midway.
No worries, when I saw them I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them...paint them RED! 

My favorite color red right now is Rust-oleum Painter's Touch Ultra Cover 

At first I was going to take them apart and flank my mirror like in the inspiration photo. 

I then decided to just leave them as is and prop them up against our wall behind my console table.. 
I am pleased with how they turned out and love the flow of red in my entry way.
