I saw this idea years ago and I don't remember where. The shutter actually came off our house. Now you are thinking she is having to tear down the house to build tables! LOL
I told my husband what I wanted and he looked at me like "WHAT"?? He made mine and I have had it on my screened back porch that is probably fifteen years old. Currently mine is painted red. I have too much
crap stuff on my porch to show you :)
This shutter table that my husband also made is in Jennifer's kitchen. Can you tell she loves the color green apple? She had her daddy make this one for her apartment nine years ago when she was in pharmacy school. It was brown then and she had it in her foyer. At the time she was decorating on a budget. When she moved into her new home nearly five years ago the table went with her and she painted it the color of her trim paint.
You can really tell it was a shutter from this pic. The shutter is made of wood with slats. The legs are actually stair spindles that my hubby had in his work area that someone had given him. He had to make the wood frame for the table for the spindles to attach to. He was still thinking I had lost my mind!
Thought I would show you this recycled window that Jennifer bought at a gift shop in B'ham hanging over the table. This is a favorite Bible verse of hers and the color was perfect for her kitchen. When she saw it she knew where she was hanging it. I have a couple of windows I want to paint ... some day.
Another view of the shutter table with the cute little lamps she found at HL.
The colors match perfectly with the painted window.
She has three large windows to the left of this table and there's a lot of light in the kitchen.
Aren't these lamps just the cutest with the houndstooth design? Makes it cozy at night with the lamps on.
Maybe one day I will get around to straightening up my porch and I will show you my table made from a shutter. We recently replaced all of the shutters on our house with vinyl ones so now I have many more tables in my future. When my husband asked me what to do with the old ones I told him we were keeping them and he just rolled his eyes! LOL Men just don't get it!
Thanks for visiting!
