A few years ago, we replaced the shoddy, water-damaged wood shutters in our den.
I couldn't just toss out these worn out window coverings, so I stuck them up in the attic. Recently, one of my crafty friends came over. We tried to think of something unique to alter. It was then that I remembered the old shutters I had stored away. Well, one trip to the craft store to pick up some magnet sheets, hooks and sandpaper, and we were off and running!
We each created a beautiful, useful and artistic note holder/message board. After sanding, painting, stamping, nailing, and mod-podging, it was time for the embellishments: a few Prima flowers, faux leaves, buttons, ribbons, antique cup hooks, and chipboard letters. Voila! Not only is it useful, it really jazzes up the side of our kitchen cabinet!

I am in the middle of trying to do this now and can't figure out how the shutter pieces will stay in place once I remove the bars that make them move. Can you tell me how you did it?ReplyDelete
