How do I use shutters for decorating?

Tia BallardSharon


I have (4) 6' shutter doors that I would like to use for decorating. I love New Orleans decorating style with shutters and w/a husband from New Orleans I decorate with this style. I've seen a lot of Pinterest ideas for shutters but none of them are what I'm looking for so I'm asking all of you on Hometalk. I don't want to cut shutters to make furniture. Not sure what room to use them in (living room, bedroom) so ideas you have are not limited to just one room. Thank you!

    Perhaps hinge 2-3 together to make a room divider or room accent. Hinging them will allow them to stand on their own and they can be moved. Pictures, etc. can be hung on them too.

    At Christmas time I saw a large shutter made into a nutcracker soldier. also I work in a retirement home and one of the residents had a bookshelf where the sides were shutters and then the top were beveled boards and shelves.
