Repurposed Shutters to Storage

Found these lovely and sturdy shutters on Freecycle. Originally I thought they would be the more traditional looking types like the green one on the left. Instead I got a trunk full of European shutters like the ones on the left. All the cutesy ideas for shutters were shuffled to the back-burner and my brain started churning up new ideas.

Here is what I ended up with:

basement shelves
sheesh, didn't know I had so much paint!
shoe rack
screwed tin cans to the bottoms as spacers

also salvaged screws
only needed a couple screws from the misc pile
total cost of both projects: $0
Not bad, huh?

And I still have a couple of shutters left over to play around with. :)


  1. WOW… I am thoroughly impressed with your hubby…that looks like such hard work…but the results…gorgeous!
    I'm sure there's a lot of fun included... :)

  2. I can't say I have ever composed a survey for a space put in the recent past, yet hello is a first time for everything and these individuals are decent! They are the main put I went by that sat down for a bit to reveal to me my choices and did not attempt and drive me into a bigger unit.
