Fence How beautiful! Daune's friends were about to throw these shutters when she rescued them and installed them along the "nook" in their yard. After they painted the shutters blue, they were rewarded with a little spot perfect for sipping coffee.

Magazine Rack

Magazine Rack Because of their slats, shutters make for great magazine racks. Before you use shutters for organizing your magazines, though, you will want to remove a few of these wooden slats first. This is where a multi-use electric cutter will come in handy. After you make space for the magazine, you paint the shutter and then add other decorative elements.
