Shutters on most residential homes today are merely window dressing. Nailed in place to the side of your house, they are unlikely to provide much privacy or security.
But please, don’t take these statements as an indictment of shutters. We love them, and they perform a much-needed decorative function, framing windows with architectural detail and often a splash of color. They have attractive and useful applications inside the home as well.
The team at Martha Stewart Living created this short video to show you how repurposed shutters can make a beautiful wall organizer for your home office or almost anywhere around the home. Anduin Havens, design director for video at Martha Stewart Living, demonstrates just how easy it is to do, using little more than a drill, a few screws, paint and shutters (of course).
Anduin uses Martha Stewart Living Brownstone Brick Textured Metallic paint to give her shutters a dazzling bronzed finish. You’ll find many other exciting options to suit the style and décor of every room in your home in the Martha Stewart Living Paint collection.
