I Shutter At The Thought

Funky Junk Interiors is featuring shutters at her weekend party and I thought this would be a great opportunity to show off some past shutter projects.  And the only thing I am painting this weekend is my outdoor trim before the snow the flies.

I made this fun planter by attaching a wire freezer basket to some shutters.
I painted up this little shutter and use it in my mudroom--it holds cds, photos, scissors, papers.
I used shutters for the roof on this ginormous birdhouse storage bin I made.
Shutters sitting on a tabletop makes a great photo/note display.
Here is a shelf I made with shutters as the side.  As you can tell, I had to recut the back beadboard piece, this one was a little small.

  7. Hi Becky,
    I all love of your shutters! It's hard to pick a favorite, but I think your shutter planter and the neat message board in your mudroom would be my two top choices! Love them all!
