3 Ways to Repurpose Old Shutters for Special Events

Summer is only a few weeks away, which means invitations to weddings and family lunches are well on their way. What better way to add into your décor than repurposing your old shutters and giving them a new breath of life. With many ideas for repurposing shutters, we look at three ways that not only fit your special events but can also be part of your day to day living.

Flower Holder

Weddings can be stressful enough without having to worry about creating a great ambience around the venue. Fortunately, with your old  shutters, you can have your wedding venue looking beautiful by repurposing your shutters into a flower holder. Not only is this a cost-saving exercise but will give your wedding a unique feel to it. With this idea you can have your florist decorate your old shutters in many beautiful ways and give your wedding a beautiful nostalgic feel without breaking the bank.

Photo Holder

Nothing beats looking at old photographs of yourself and family members from when you were young. The memories each picture holds bring with joy and great stories, and that’s what the repurposed shutter photo holder can bring to your family reunion this coming summer. All you have to do is pick up some old shutters, give them a good clean, some paint and there you have it, a photo holder to display all those memories. Place this in the room where most people will be in, and you have yourself a conversation starter without having to endure those awkward moments of silence.

Multi-Purpose Hanger

The beauty about repurposing your old shutters is how you can create multi-purpose products. This multi-purpose hanger can be used as vegetable rack or anything you want it to be at your special event. All you have to do is let your imagination run wild and you have a multi-functional hanger that can be used for events and day to day needs.
