shutters

I've noticed that in my posts about home decor, I gravitate towards pieces that can be recycled and aren't quite what you'd expect to see in certain places of a house. But with the right color and placement they work.

Same goes with window shutters. They aren't just for keeping the sun out anymore!

I love a good plantation shutter but I'm not sure I'd buy some for the sole purpose of decorating anything besides a window. I'm assuming these babies can probably get expensive. But if I find some laying around the neighborhood, dumpster, or a friend is getting rid of her's then I'm going to snatch them up sooooo quickly. Like BAM mine!

My favorite is the headboard for sure. Maybe I should get a headboard since I love them so much?

What do you think? Like the shutters? Or think they just belong on windows?

I love this! I've been seeing shutters everywhere and have wanted to use them for some time. I'm with you, I love the headboard look. I also am crushing on the jewelry holder too! It's so cute, but with a purpose too!

i love the idea of reusing pieces that can be recycled keep it up becca! using the shutter for the plant in the bathroom is super cute. i saw some shutters once at a garage sale and was really interested in them but they were already sold.

So cute! I've always wanted to find big, tall shutters and attached them like folding doors. I would then use them to hold photographs! Love all of these ideas! :)

What a great idea and they look so elegant as decor items, not just to keep out the light! I think I like them in a desk area or holding jewelry the best. So creative!
