Trash to Treasure --- Shutters

Today I am sharing some nifty ideas on what to do with old shutters.

I love this first idea from She's Smart.

 The shutter is side ways,   add decorative brackets and a shelf across the top and hooks on the bottom.   Great for an entry way.

Here is an unusual use for shutters.   Learn how to make an earring holder on Eating, Etc.

Make a plant stand out of them.    Instructions on Ehow.

Here is an altered art note holder from Altered Artworks.

Then of course you can always restore them and use them indoors,

or outdoors.

Thanks for visiting today.


  1. love the shutters and all the ideas..I have a set of tall ones that are my headboard in my bedroom..and I use more of these beauties as my display stands at my gift shows..they make a great backdrop to hang my dolls and such on..;)

  2. I like these ideas. Why didn't I think of that?

  3. I totally get the point of what of what consider as trash can still be turned into something useful once again. Old crates or cantilever benches can be turned into tables or shelves while shutters can become a number of things as stated above.
