New Decorations- Repurpose Shutters

Have you seen all the shutter repurposing ideas floating around Pinterest?  I saw one a long time ago when I first signed up for Pinterest and fell in love.  The project repurposed a shutter into a mail organizer, I loved the look and could not wait to get into our home to hang mine.

I hung the shutter right in the garage door.  Typically I am the one collecting the mail everyday so this is a nice place to drop it off on my way in the house.  Doesn’t she look awesome on that wall?  I removed the picture that was hanging there because it really does not match our new décor, it is from our town home and matched perfect there.  I have another repurposing idea for it, hopefully I will get that doe this weekend and be able to share with you next week.

Here is another picture of the shutter hanging out in the hallway.  This was a simple project I just hung the thing right on the wall.  I am thinking about maybe adding a couple rosettes to it, or something to dress it up some.  But for right now I’m loving the rustic-ness of it.  I may decide to change it up in the next couple of months and add something to it…but we shall see.


While I was working on some decorating, I added the children’s books to the bottom of this table.  I have been searching, and searching, and searching for decorations for my tables in the living room.  They are so naked and it is driving me crazy.  I want them to be dressed up and pretty, but also kid friendly.  I thought I would use the books as decorations because that way if they played with them it would be ok but this only lasted a day or two and then the books were back in their room…so still searching for kid friendly decorations.

I’m so excited that tomorrow is Friday, I’m looking forward to some relaxation this weekend.  I hope to get outside and get some more practice with my new toy. Hope you have a fun weekend planned!!


Oh, and happy Small Friday Yall!
