I decided to use it in the master next to the reading chair. Bet you didn't guess that.
After cleaning it and waxing it the colors really popped.
This blue reminds me of the blue shutters on homes in France.
I have always wanted to use a salvage piece like this, but I have limited wall space in this house with so many windows.
Now when I sit in this chair I can look at this piece and remember Mr. Savvy rolling his eyes at me like I was nuts for wanting this.
I may buy a plug in sconce and attach it to the shutter, but for now the brass floor lamp works fine.
So next time you're out and see a junkie chippy nasty shutter maybe you will be inspired to use it in some way.
