11 Ways To Repurpose Shutters

Posted by Holli McRae on 3/9/15 10:24 AM

Due to budget constraints and landfill guilt, I'm on a repurposing streak lately. When I look around Houzz, my eyes are peeled for interesting objects used in different ways. The other day I stumbled across a headboard made of old shutters and thanks to our handy-dandy keyword search function, I was able to find a slew of ways that architects, interior designers and design bloggers are repurposing shutters.

Houzz Contributor. Hi There! I currently live in a 1920s cottage in Atlanta that I'll describe as "collected." I got into design via Landscape Architecture, which I studied at the University of Virginia. I've been writing about design online for quite a few years over at Hatch: The Design Public Blog.
