    Can you possibly upload a photo of what you have to work with? I am assuming you meant shutter doors in your description.

      @Brimfield Starts Here No...just the spelling you gave...sTutter doors. We know what shutter doors are, just the spelling had us confused. I would not go so far as to delete your question. Follow your H has a great idea in their photo! I should think something like that would work very nicely for you.

    I made something similar to that, but it doesn't use shutters. http://followyourheartwoodworking.blogspot.ca/2010/11/making-log-shelving-unit-part-1.html

      @Brimfield Starts Here I took this to craft shows. The "X" backing comes off with a screw at each end and it closes up. The shelves slide in. So you have the two sides which are like ladders, the X portion and the shelves to cart back and forth.

    @ Brimfield Starts Here, I made some shelves to display my shells from Panama. I used two DVD holders on each end of shelves. There is a picture of one on my pins.

    @Brimfield Starts Here, here is a picture of my shelves using DVD holders.

    What about unfinished wood crates? If you stagger them, you get even more shelf shace

    I learned from my experience of weekly craft market sales, unloading and unloading: shelves should be light, disassemble quickly into easy to handle bundles that fit in car along with lots of crafts. Favorite was a narrow ladder with wheels on one side to use as a dolly for the shelves and crates of crafts. Shelf units are packed on top or side for 1st unload, last to load. Keep em simple: let your crafts shine. Enjoy the visiting with everyone and make lots of sales at your art shows.

    On Pinterest they used plastic gutters on the wall and then I saw drawers stacked on their side . Those shutters sound like great sides for shelves. Sometimes if they're louvered I've seen boards slid in a removed slat. Best of junkin' to you

    You can use frames with chicken wire to hang and put shelves on make them so you can fold them,paint them or leave the hickey wire as is and paint the frames white. We did this for my husband's art work and then I used them to put my quilts,wall hangings,and teddybears,and my other items I made.
