Spring Shutter Centerpiece {And Banner}

This is my brand new spring centerpiece I want to show you.  I adore fresh flowers, especially in the springtime.  

And I love projects that include re-purposing something vintage.  I used an old shutter that I painted and distressed to place under my centerpiece.  It's so much fun.

I also have a recent love for anything galvanized, like the buckets I used.  They look so old fashioned and fun.

I added some lace paper hearts to the buckets tied with my favorite turquoise twine.  And then I made a cute little spring banner to finish everything off.

The banner is painted with turquoise chalk paint {Martha Stewart}.  To make the shapes I used cookie cutters as stencil guides and wrote with colored chalk pens.  Then I outlined the shapes with white chalk to make them look more finished.

Then I sanded/distressed the edges and rubbed them with distress ink.  LOVE how everything turned out.  

Now my house looks like spring!!
