Use a Shutter to Build a Shelf

I never pass up a shutter!

Shutters make great organization stations, indoor window treatments or even a privacy screens.

Today I'm turning this old shutter

into beautiful shelves!

I created shelves using 1" x 4"s, triangle shaped mini blocks,
and a strip of moulding that I added to the front of each shelf to form a ledge.

I painted the shutter piece in Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint
Curio. As you can see the milk paint dries a very dusty color...

I finished off the piece with a coat of Hemp Oil. Miss Mustard Seed Hemp Oil is my new favorite finish.

It is easy to apply and gives a rich beautiful color
to every color of milk paint.

The shutter shelf is finished. It is the perfect place
to hold knick knacks, even post a photo or note
with a clothespin clipped to the shutter slats.
