50+ Ways to Repurpose Shutters

by Johnnie Collier

50 ways to upcycle old shutters from savedbylovecreations.comIt is 50+ round-up time again.  Don’t you know by now that I love repurposed projects, eco-friendly decor, pretty much anything upcycled?  That is why I am bringing you a ton of ideas for reusing shutters to bring unique, inexpensive flair to your decor.  Oh how I want to make side tables and fun displays from old shutters.  I just so happened to score a sweet wooden pair last weekend for $5.

I’ve always wanted to do a shutter project but just haven’t found inexpensive or free shutters to do a project. One of these days when I do find them… I’ll definitely be making one of these projects!

There are some really cool ideas here. I really like the painted sideboard and painted bench. The colors really add to the character.
