My mom subscribes to Lowe's crafting magazine. In it, they had this really cute craft for decorating an old shutter as an American flag. Of course, I had to do it. Mom just happened to have some old shutters laying around, so in exchange for giving me one of her shutters, I told her I'd repurpose one for her as well. They turned out really cute, but I don't intend to make anymore. Painting each of those individual slats turned out to be more of a hassle than I imagined. Yikes!
