4 Ways to Decorate with Shutters

I was so excited when I  ran across a set of 6 pink.....yes pink.....shutters at a yard sale the other day.   I didn't even have to paint them!     Shutters are so can use them anywhere!   Today,   I wanted to share where my shutters finally found a home.

   I put this single shutter on my dining room table to use as a table runner,  but decided to try it in the bedroom and liked it better there.

Notice something else new in the master bedroom?  

 I brought Ky's desk in from the studio and put it at the end of our bed.   

I showed you my new yard sale fireplace screen a couple of posts ago,  but here it is tweaked with one of the set of 3 shutters hinged together.   Both sets were hinged,  but I had H separate the other set to use as individual shutters. 

H also installed a new strip light under the mantel to accent the bottom part of the fireplace.   

The other 2 single shutters are being used as a back splash in the kitchen.

I have added some fall touches to the kitchen,  but that's another!

So,   here is how I used my 6 new shutters.     Oh,   I advertised 4 ways didn't I?

Here's the 4th way that you have seen many times......a back drop in the kitchen.

  I hope this post gives you some ideas of how to use your shutters!
