Unique one of a kind wall shelf.....so easy to make~

Today I'd like to share how I made a shelf from a pair of vintage shutters. It is soooo easy and will be a great addition to your home decor. First you have to find shutters. I got these at a tag sale for $2.50 each. Can you believe it? It was the end of the day and all of their stuff was 1/2 off. Even if I hadn't gotten the half off, they still would have been a great price....So, I got 4 vintage shutters with an amazing distressed finish for a total of $10. Ok, sorry, I may be rubbing it in just a bit...LOL!!


The project I made is a wall shelf. All I needed were two brackets (which I already had on hand) and some screws.....Here is the finished product:




Then onto the fun part....adding the decor....




Now I am excited to announce my GIVEAWAY winner....Shirley from These Moments of Mine is so lucky to have won two softened burlap pillow covers from RU Piper Designs. If you didn't win, you still have to check this AMAZING shop out. They are wonderful people with unbelievable designs and affordable prices.




And lastly, be sure to come back tomorrow morning to check out my 5th Etsy seller giveaway. It's a secret, but I will give a little hint....It is perfect for the DIY decorator.....

  19. Love the shutter shelf. My garage is now full of shutters cause when we painted the house last year I decided it looked better without even though I am a shutter person--it looked less cluttered. So maybe I'll try it! Your daughter is absolutely radiant!
