Junk Hall Decor under $1


Here is my 'new' junk hall decor.  Recently I revealed my kitchen and hall makeovers.  The hall was naked a bit bare.  Several weeks ago I found these shutters? at the Alabama highway sale.

That's correct, they were 25 cents EACH.
I knew I wanted to paint them and use them in the hall.  But I needed something to go between them!  I searched with my 40% coupon in hand at Hobby Lobby to no avail.  For weeks I've stalked visited my local Goodwill, Salvation Army store and my fave junk estate sale store.  Zilch! 

This week my best friend, Jane sent me a text at the office.  "Ended up getting a couple of things (at the Goodwill) one that you might like to see."  She dropped by that evening after work with two beautiful chippy iron framed pieces!  I snatched it up and ran in the house invited her in and we put it together with the shutters. PERFECT! Oh and she GAVE it to me!!!! Thanks Jane!  The other is an arch framed one that she is using in her house over built in shelving.


She sent me this photo by cell phone.  She plans to paint it. I painted the iron part only on mine as my teen daughter liked the chippy look for it.  I agreed.

I painted the shutters today (it was BEAUTIFUL here) with American Accents Espresso and we hung them tonight after dinner. My new junk hall decor was a total of 50 cents and a bit of spray paint!!!!  I love it!

  8. OMIGOSH...this looks fabulous and you just helped me deciding what to do on the wall over my headboard in the guest room....
    Come over and take a look at the wall (I posted today) and see that what I have is too small...I have an old iron piece leaning up against a fence outside...I am thinking it might be JUST the thing to go over the bed...I'll try it and if it looks ok, I'll post it...with YOU listed as my inspiration!!
    Thanks so much for posting this...

  21. Wow! Shutters for 25 cents! You go Sherri! The hallway looks fabulous! All of your recipes look wonderful. I will have to come back and copy some of those. The ranch chicken is looking so good, as well as the pizza made with it, oh...and the pot pie. Who doesn't eat pot pie! My boys will eat it up! Hope you are having a great week so far. I am LOVING all the rain!
