These shutters rode around in my trunk for about three years before I figured out what I wanted to do with them.
Back story: We lived in this big, beautiful, old house for more than ten years. And then my parents sold it to build their own home. I took the shutters before we left from the back of the basement. If anyone knows old houses, when you buy them, you tend to inherit old things like cans of paint, doors, shutters, etc…, pretty much a Pinterest dream.
I decided to make two of these shutters into shelves and give one to my mom as a housewarming present so she could have a little piece of our old house in her new.
