Weathered Repurposed Shutter Organizer8:47:00 AM
Truth be told.... this shutter sat outside for a while...
It has a nice, natural weathered patina...
I began by removing some of the shutters and
taking off the piece on the back
that made the slats open and close.
I wanted the slats I left on the shutter to be closed...
The slats now work great to hold small notes.
A small piece of trim molding holds the chalk. I cut
a piece of chalkboard and a piece of cork to fit
the opening. They are both supported on the back
with a piece of thin wood that fits into the space.
I created small decorative tacks by using E6000
to attach a game piece to a thumb tack.
The weathered patina on this shutter is perfect...
no need for paint or stain this time!
The shutter works as an adorable little organizer for
a narrow area in the kitchen or mud room.
Stay tuned to Homeroad for more repurposed
shutter ideas coming soon!
