15 Fabulous Shutter Re-Purpose Ideas For Your Home

I've got a couple pairs of shutters that I've been hanging onto for a while now, waiting for the perfect application.  I still don't know what I'm going to do with them but my mind-wheels are turning and inspiration is everywhere.

Take a look as some of the great re-purpose ideas I found on Pinterest:

Lots of painted shutters, I think this one is my favorite.  Take a look at Pinterest and you'll find great snowmen and flag shutter ideas as well.

A magazine rack is so clever.   If you removed a few more of the slats you could use it for a towel rack.

If building a shelving unit is a little much for you how about adding a couple shelves.  Great way to display a small collection.  Turn your shutter the other direction, add a shelf at the top and hooks at the bottom for a great coat rack.

I used a few smaller shutters to make a turn-table for jewelry display.  

Have you made anything using shutters?  They've been added to my list of things to look for while out thrifting, so many neat things to make with them.

Here's a sampling of shutters we've got available here at The Chirping Frog.
