They keep brutal sunlight out and cool air in, but did you know that your shutters can also be interior decorations? With a little paint and a lot of imagination, you can transform these window-dressings into functional wall art and even furniture! Hang multi-colored shutters in place of a headboard or simply place an old shutter on the wall and use it as a letter organizer.
You don’t have to de-shutter your house or wait until replacement time to try one of these projects. Scour your local thrift shops for old shutters, or even look online!
