Have you ever thought about what you might do with those older shutters – interior or exterior shutters – that you’re finally going to replace with quality Danmer window coverings? Turns out, there are some really cool DIY (Do-It-Yourself) ideas to turn old shutter panels into something useful and even highly decorative in and around your house.
These kind of DIY projects are easy and affordable. And if you’re replacing older NON-DANMER shutters with some new ones, you might as well put the old ones to use if you can. Or you can simply look for older vintage shutters being tossed out when your neighbors are replacing window coverings. You can brush paint them, spray paint them, or treat to a cool spontaneous paint technique. They make great tables, chairs, decorative walls pieces as well as mantels and doors to cabinets.

Re-purpose old shutter panels to make a bench made using shutters, old balusters, and spare wood for the arms.
