Yea my wife has picked them up beside the road before and she made a shutter picture board for our room using close pins it looks great.One persons trash is anothers treasure.
I never throw away anything, much to my wife's dismay. I almost always find a use for stuff somehow.
Nope....you can repurpose them if in decent shape....or save for a design on a dime project.....most time builders don't prep and paint them properly and they are rotted. Might lean them against a tree and grow a vine up them or something
