Shutters set a mood and say ‘relax’! However, beyond their air of casual, shutters carry design notes ranging from eco-friendly, shabby-chic, beach house to country cottage, all depending on their color and the other design elements in the room.
Because they blend well into so many interior design styles, re-purposed shutters are all the rage. Just recently I featured how to repurpose shutters into magazine racks. If you feel like doing a shutter design project, but don’t want to get all those tools out of the garage, consider: a shutter noticeboard.
