Old shutters may be reused in many different ways, from making barn doors of them to creating organizers and furniture. As we’ve already shared some cool furniture projects, it’s time to have a look at smaller things: organizers and decorations. Let’s get started!

Organizers

Most of us need mail organizers in the entryway, and making it will take little time if you have a ready shutter at hand. Sand and paint it the way you like (here it’s vintage light grey) and then attach in your entryway to store your mail there. Enjoy!
