I have to admit that I can't take full creative genius for this idea as I originally saw it on Pretty Handy Girls blog. That being said, I followed through on re-creating her project and although mine isn't as fancy, I think that it serves it's purpose beautifully.
On Saturday I had to go into work, so while I was over in St Louis, I stopped into the Habitat for Humanity's ReStore. It's pretty much like a Consignment Store for any possible home improvement item you could ever need, so it was a perfect place to go scouting for old shutters. There were a lot of option of shutters that were flat, but I needed to make sure it had slats (or louvres as I've been told from those "in the know").
