I have had this shutter project on the back burner for about a year now, and I am finally getting to it!
The final motivator? Our stainless steel refrigerator is not magnetic (who knew??) leaving us without a spot to display all those lovely save-the-dates, invitations, baby announcements, holiday cards, or other seasonal items that remind us of good times and those we love.
Backstory: So I bought vintage shutters on Etsy long ago, with the intention of using them to display the table cards at our wedding. Well we didn’t end up using them, but rather than let them go to waste I decided they would be perfect to hold cards and other display items in the kitchen!
First the decor inspiration….
And now for the project!
1. Shutters — Bought mine on Etsy ($15)
2. Spray paint — 2 cans of the color of your choice ($6)
3. Hardware — Pack of hinges ($3)
1.Remove all existing hardware.
2. Thoroughly clean the shutters (I used Murphy’s Oil)
In addition to cards and important info I also made little “info” notes that I can take off and leave on the table to let my husband know if I’m out when he gets home.
Project Cost: Under $25
Level of Difficulty: Easy
