I love the way it turned out. We ended up just tying the tools to the shutter with twine. I didn't want to damage the tools, so this is the solution I came up with. We did not alter the old shutter. It was already so cool I didn't want to change it either. We are working on another little joint project too. Hopefully I will have it finished next week.
Two weeks ago we went to my youngest daughter's volleyball tournament in Gardner, KS. On the way home we stopped at the grocery store in Lawrence and I saw someone I thought looked familiar. I stopped her and introduced myself. I am sure I seemed like a stalker or something, but didn't want to miss an opportunity to meet a favorite blogger. It was Meg from the blog Whatever! Check it out if you already haven't. It is so full of inspiration and color and she is a great photographer too! (I have tried to link to Meg's blog with Blogsy, but I am not sure if I did it right. There is a link at my side bar to her blog if the link in the text doesn't work.)
