Did you notice I used some old shutters in this toolbox post?
If you remember, I picked up the motherload of shutters from my neighbours.
I put some shutters to work in my workshop by hiding some drywall holes. (great excuse for a cool wall treatment I say)
As for the rest…
They make a most excellent photography background when you need them the most. 🙂
I mean, the garage door is there… which has worked in the toolbox post HERE.
But the detail of shutters…
Is nice! And instantly easy too.
So those with cameras, the next time you come across a shutter collection yourself, you know what you need them for now.
Aren’t you glad to have me ok your hoarding styled purchases? 🙂

Donna, as always, a brilliant repurpose for these shutters. Carry on!
Hi Donna, the shutters idea is so smart. I have no space anywhere to have a decent backdrop. Now I know what I can do with the huge shutters I’ve been saving!
A very timely post for me Donna. I’ve been struggling with creating a portable back drop for my photos. I’ve tried wallpaper attached to dowling, drapery panels on a clothesline, and nothing is working. Shutters…dah! I could totally fold them up and tuck them off to the side in the shop. Light bulbs going off here! Thanks for the inspiration 🙂
Love your “cheatin’ walls” !!!
I really love your blog and have been going back into your archives to see what I have missed. Makes for a very enjoyable afternoon as I wait for paint to dry on my next project.
