I have a thing for old shutters. You'll find them throughout my house. I have an old chippy blue one in my dining room. The matching shutter is currently in the booth displaying artwork.
And a pair flank the doorway to our living room.
For inspiration on other ways to use them I turned to -- where else -- Pinterest, and found these great ideas.
Here's one used as a plate rack with hooks.
Here are a couple transformed into tables.
Use them outdoors as a garden fence...
Use them as a headboard ...
Love this idea to display flowers and bottles:
As a shelf and hat rack by the entry.
As a table runner ...
Another holiday idea.
To add some interest to wall hangings.
Or you can always just prop some against the wall to look pretty!
Hope this gave you some ideas. So next time you come across some old shutters, grab those babies!
