Weathered Repurposed Shutter Organizer

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.
