Shutter Organization Station

5:00:00 AM

I began this project with another side of the road find... 
a large unpainted shutter just crying out for a new life.

Some of my favorite projects come from random
pieces I find that I hold on to until inspiration hits.
This old shutter is one of them...

I painted this large shutter with a couple coats of 
Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint
in a mixture of Eulalie's Sky and Kitchen Scale 
then sanded the edges for a distressed look.

I added cork and chalkboard by drilling holes in the corners and using screws with washers to secure to the shutter.

Black hardware contrasted nicely with the milk paint... 
a couple of hooks and a knob for the shutter door.

I glued typewriter keys to thumbtacks using E6000
glue giving the tacks a little added bling.

The large shutter station hangs securely from 2  
large D rings on the back.

Get organized by having a handy place to tack up a receipt or write yourself a quick reminder on the chalkboard...

As you can see the pictures are taken while this piece
hangs in my shop.

The post was written but the pictures were nowhere to 
be found so please excuse the poor quality of these shop pics.

Like message centers as much as I do? 
Here are a few more fun projects...
