Next time you're at a flea market grab an old shutter for this gorgeous farmhouse kitchen idea!

Check out the video for more how-to's!


Begin by scraping the shutter of any old paint or dirt.

Next, add a coat of spray paint to both sides.

Then, measure and cut or have your wood cut for you and add a coat of stain if desired.

Next, pre drill and drill the wood pieces into the top, middle and bottom of each shutter on both sides.

After your shell has been built it's time to add the shelves!

Predrill and drill the wood into all four corners of the top, middle, and bottom shelf on the cart.

Next, add four caster wheels to the bottom.

Flip it over & that's it! (:

Add an antique hook for towels, or other decorative elements.

Use the top as extra counter space and fill it up with cook books, pots, pans and cooking utensils!

I hope this inspires you to rescue an old pair of shutters from your local thrift store!

    Did you add the braces under the shelves after or did you put them on before you attached the shelves
