DIY Projects With Repurposing Shutters

DIY Projects With Repurposing Shutters. Fascinating, Creative, Repurposed, Upcycled, Imagination, Home Decor, Homemade, Inexpensive, and etc. 

Hello, and Welcome to LilacsNDreams everyone! I just love saving money, don't you? I enjoy being able to do things, even the small things, for our home with our home decor. It is thrilling, and satisfying to be able to put that little bit of personal touch to something to show in your home, and when guests ask "Where did you get that?" How satisfying to say "I did it!" Know what I mean?

Below you will see a few pictures of some ideas I am showing for repurposing shutters. Who would have guessed what you can do with them, and to also know there is so much more that can be done as well! Hopefully by showing some of these different projects you can maybe get some ideas for yourself as to what you might like to do too. Shutters can be found inexpensively with Thrift Stores, Yards Sales, sometimes on the side of the road, maybe you know of someone who no longer wants the ones they have, and so on.

Here are some painted shutters sitting side by side, and shown with some pictures, and hangings on them. Pretty neat, huh? TheCraftingChicks

Hey, this is cool! A simple magazine rack. No bending over for the rack on the floor, but to have it on a wall is a great idea!  CraftGossip CraftGossip

Love pink, and how neat to have them painted this color. Then, to have them hanging on the wall in your child's room for little notes, pictures of their friends, and so on.  Addicted2Decorating

Moving onto another idea which is really neat, and who would have guessed this also, right? making a book shelf of your size, your choice, your color, and using shutters with some wood for the shelves. Now, that is a neat idea too! You know, with the shutters being on the sides you could also clip little things on there as well. Just saying:)  MyRepurposedLife

There is soooo much more I could show you, and so many things that I have not come close to mentioning here in repurposing shutters. I hope this little bit has given you some ideas, and make sure to visit some of these places for some more great ideas too. Also, if you google repurposed shutters you can see so many more ideas too.

Thanks so much for sharing your time with LilacsNDreams everyone. It has been a blast, and I hope you enjoyed it along with Me. Take care, and have a wonderful day everyone!:)
