Hallway Shutter Shelf


Last weekend, DH and I worked on redoing this area in our home.
Credit for this project goes to Going A Little Coastal.


Here's the area as it was before. This area is at the top of our steps and isn't a very big area.

And how it looks when walking in the front door.


We purchased a unfinished, shutter style closet door, about $35...


And two shelfs from Goodwill, each cost $2. We ended up only using one shelf for this project.

Two hooks(aren't they so ugly!)


And then one candlestick..another Goodwill find for a couple dollars.


Here it is before it was painted...


And the after...


I hung up a couple of my mercury glass acorns..


A glass jar was added to the candlestick..it looks so different.


We love this shutter wall and I can't wait to decorate it each season.

I'll have to show this to our daughter who used a shutter to make her headboard...she'll love this! Nice job!

This ismy kind of piece of furniture! It looks amazing. I saw something similar but it was for outside and they used another shutter for a table/shelf to put pots and garden tools on. I think I like yours better and would love this in my home! Boy you will have so much fun decorating this for the seasons! Great post.
Blessings,
Debbie
