Another DIY! Repurposing Old Shutters

If you saw my table at the Beaches Artwalk last month, you might have noticed that it looked rather, well, flat. I didn't have anything to hang stuff on! I was short on time, and wasn't able to put together a display I was truly proud of.

So this month, I did my research! I wanted a space with a warm and friendly feel to hang my work on, and loved the idea of using something vintage. Several google searches ( see LOTS of shutter ideas here ) later, and a fun treasure hunting day at Avonlea Antiques with my boys, and I had just what I needed. 

 Headed into Lowe's to saw the shutters in two.

Also gave me a chance to reuse the lovely cream color 
I used to paint the bricks!

Feel lucky; I'm letting you see my mess. Trying to figure out how to hinge them! This is the part where Ro steps in and makes it all better, ha:)

The final product!
