SHUTTER SHELF DIY
Hey y’all, it’s our favorite day of the month, Thrift Store Decor day! The team is back today with a wide range of ideas that anyone can do! I’m sharing this Shutter Shelf DIY. I scooped this shutter up as soon as I saw it! The only thing that would have made it better is if there were two of them!
SUPPLIES FOR DIY SHUTTER SHELF
- Tape Measure
- Wood that fits the brackets
- Screws (Measure the depth of the shutter and bracket.)
- Drill/Drill Bits
- Screw driver or bits for the drill
- Saw for cutting the shelf boards (I used a miter saw.)
- Paint of your choice (I used Krylon spray paint.)
- Sand paper
- Prepare your shutter for painting. You may have found the perfect chippy look, if so skip this process. You can just spray it with a clear sealer to protect a chippy painted shutter. The only thing I did to mine was brush off a few cobwebs and then spray pained it.
- Decide how many shelves you want to add, based on the height of your shutter.
- Use a tape measure to mark the spot for the brackets.
- Use a drill bit, just a little smaller than the screws. Attach brackets.
- Measure the width of your shutter, cut the shelves to fit.
You can find brackets and shelf boards at most home improvement stores and on Amazon. I already had the shelf boards and brackets. I got them at Walmart. I have included affiliate links to similar options.
Decide where you want your brackets, use the tape measure to space the brackets. Mark the holes with a pencil and use the drill with a drill bit to create the hole for the screws.
I left room at the top of my shutter to add a wreath. This is totally optional, add shelves anywhere you’d like.
