An unfinished project....part two...

Hi everyone!  If you've been following along, yesterday I showed you a shutter project that I had started and had planned on finishing last night.  If you need to get caught up, check out part one here.  My dilemma was what color to paint the shutters.
So here's a picture of the shutters before I painted them.  I couldn't decide if I should paint them a color or white.  I'm planning on distressing or antiquing them.  My living room is a mix of colors including sage green, chocolate brown, white/cream/beige and pops of red.  So I'm wondering if I should paint them barn red.  Or should I play it safe and paint them white.  All the trim is white.
So here's what I decided to do....I painted them white...for now.  I painted them with ASCP in Old White.
I'm going to live with them this way for a few days and then decide if I'm going to keep them white or try a different color.
And if I decide to keep them white, then I'll distress them.  I'm hoping to make a decision on the color by this weekend.  Hope you have a great day.  Thanks for stopping by.

    I'll be waiting to see what happens. I really like them, I'm not sure the color change matters. They are so neat!

  4. Do you know how many unfinished projects I have - I think I know what color to paint and then change my mind! I think living with the white is a good idea for awhile (at least white is easy to paint over if you change your mind!)
