Window shutters have come a long way from simply flanking a window!
Especially in the upcycling world we live in now. Old window shutters are magical to create with, since they’re an already built component.
Window shutters are wonderful backdrops, which can be used on mantels, as a headboard and SO much more!
This post shares 95+ ideas on what to make with window shutters! Have a few favorite ideas that you’d like to try?
Window shutter features
Distressing Shutters – Under a Pile of Scrap!
I love the distressed treatment on these old shutters. This set also works extremely well brighting up a darker rocked fireplace mantel. What a perfect backdrop to showcase that fabulous wreath!
A vintage bedroom for girls – Be Book Bound
If you want instant character to a space, tall shutters that nearly reach the ceiling will provide! I adore that these are actually acting as headboards. Aren’t they stunning in this setting?
Antique wood and iron shutter – Housepitality Designs
I remember when I first laid eyes on these shutters. They are outstanding! The detailed metal work and perfectly distressed paint could entertain your eyes forever.
Bedroom shutter wall – Thistlewood Farms
A full wall of shutters makes for the coolest feature wall ever! This is my kinda wallpaper!

I made it to your party this week, so excited. Normally I’m so late that I just wait until another time.
Love all those shutters, will give me something to drool over. I have some old ones just waiting for me to decide what to do with them. I’m off to look at some great ideas to ponder.
Thanks so much for hosting and have a great weekend!

Hi Donna; have a fantastic time at Luckett’s. Take lots of pictures, get people to take lots of pictures of you too! Wow.

Thanks Joy! You bet on the photos… I’ll have my camera glued to my hip!
You have the best blog layout! Every time I log on I am so impressed by how unique it is. I am thinking about getting some help to customize mine more. Anyway, that is an aside! What I really want to do is to thank you for another great party. Blessings, Patti@OldThingsNew

Thank you for hosting, Donna! I’ve seen the shutters above Shirley’s (Housepitality Designs) mantle in person and they are truly fabulous. Her picture is great, but it doesn’t do them justice. They are amazing! Sure do wish I was going to be able to go to Lucketts to see you!
Thanks so much for hosting!!
Thanks for hosting the party again this week. You are really making me want to go out and buy some shutters now. Some of those ideas are really cute. Wonder if the Habitat Restore has any . . .
