Shutter Sofa Table Shutters are key design elements in cottage style. Many people repurpose them as wall art or headboards. Layla used a shutter as the top surface of a sofa table to bring in soft lines common in cottage design.
Great idea to turn 2 small shutters into a basket/box for wash rags and other bath supplies holder, Magazine Holder, or kitchen supplies, or a garden planter box for plants and flowers. Great start for a centerpiece idea too!
Don’t throw out your old shutters, get creative with them. These shelves are just one way you can reuse them. Birdhouses and flower boxes for the windows are a few more great ways to transition old shutters into something beautiful.
