Trash to Treasure Decorating Ideas for Shutters

shutter cabinet doors

I’ve told you already about my love for dolls growing up. That extended to dollhouses, of course. And every little girl knows that a very crucial element to any decent dollhouse are the shutters. They don’t have to open/close but that is a very big bonus. I think I played with the shutters on any dollhouse I came into contact with more than with the front door or staircases.

My fondness for shutters is also rooted in the fact that my Grandparents had a very cozy and aptly-named sunroom in their house. The sunroom had a couple rows of dark, tiny shutters on the inside that had to be latched every night.

Whether you have a house with shutters now makes no matter, you can still have shutters in your life. You can find them being torn off of old houses, for sale on eBay, or even being offered on Craigslist.

Turn an old shutter into shelving (or a coat rack) with some brackets and fresh paint.
