Upcycling Shutters into a Head Board

Hello fellow Thrifters and Friends,
   Our spare bedroom is looking so lovely. I can't wait to do a room tour here on the blog, but it still has a way to go. I have seen some lovely head boards made out of shutters on Pinterest, and I had two shutters sitting in my garage needing to be used. 

My dad cut the shutters in two pieces for me, so they could be a head board size instead of door size. We thought we would sand the doors before beginning to paint them to make sure the paint adhered to them.
Lets just say that idea back fired on us pretty quickly. Mr Joyful Thrifter had to put each one of those little pieces of wood back into the little slats. So sad. Such is the life of a DIY'er. He finally did it and I was able to continue on with the project, and we decided that they did not need to be sanded anymore.
He was pretty sad about having to put them back together again.
Look at that awesome mint green color! I just love it. Plus I got the paint for $3.00 in the clearance section at Lowes. That is my favorite spot at Lowes for sure. 
They are looking so lovely. I will post pictures soon of the finished product hanging on the wall. 
Good Luck on the projects you are working on!
