I found the shutters at the Habitiat for Humanity ReStore in the area for $3.25 each (Do a Google search to find one in your area, you can find some amazing items there, and help support a great cause.), we gave the boys free reign in the spray paint aisle at Home Depot to pick whatever color they wanted, and we used S hooks and small binder clips to hold the art.
Below is the work in progress and finshed products:
|Shutters - Before getting sanded down|
|After a coat of paint - Kaleb opted for bright blue, Julian opted for bright yellow|
|No picture hangers? Just use the tabs off of soda cans!|
|"S" hook and binder clip|
|Finished product before artwork is added.|
|Finished product with artwork.|
