There is so much you can do with an old shutter! Here, a large shutter is shown holding cards, acting as an organizer. You can add a cork board to the top for holding notes, etc. and use the louvers as well for more storage.
Another idea would be to hinge together a few (large or small) shutters, creating your very own room divider for a fraction of the cost of a new one.
See the book below for steps on how to repair and restore furniture. It's great for the do-it-yourselfers who love to flea market!
