Transform a Mirror With Shutters

Lately I'm been preoccupied with shutter projects. I was lucky enough to score a pile of shutters and now I'm totally obsessed with all the ways a shutter can be upcycled. I've already shared a couple on Hometalk, a headboard and a coffee table. I have a few more projects on my website but look for more in the future as I use up my supply.

This project uses just one shutter, cut in half, and an outdated mirror.

First up was cutting the shutter in half. While the two halves were the perfect length, they didn’t quite match. One side had slats going all the way to the bottom and the other side had an oversized bottom frame.

I never knew before I started doing all these shutter projects how easy slats are to remove. With a jigsaw, I cut one side of the slats and the other side just pulls out so I was left with an equal number of slats on each side.

With a kreg jig and wood glue I attached a wood piece to the shutter to match the border on the other side..
Before painting, I filled the kreg jig holes with wood putty and sanded.

The shutters were attached to the mirror with preexisting hinges but a couple of T hinges would look great on this piece.

Want the same look but don't have a shutter? May want to consider using a louvered door.
