Random musings from a Wife, Mom, Homeschooler, Student, and Friend

I found two beautifully chippy antique shutters at my favorite antique mall. The once bright red color had faded into a gorgeous pinky-red shade from the sun and the years–a patina that just can’t be faked. The problem was that I couldn’t move or even dust them without showers of paint and dirt falling off of them. So, today I hit them with some poly to seal all that loveliness in.

Time will tell if this poly idea was a colossal goof on my part. I’m hoping the color won’t change too much! To be continued!

Update: They look fantastic!!!
