spring menu and repurposing shutters

Today I have the links for the Spring Reunion Dinner in one place for easy access and ideas for repurposing shutters, including the super simple Spring Shutter sign I made.

There are so many fabulous projects and crafts that can be done with old discarded shutters. I’ve pinned dozens of ideas on Pinterest. Here is a direct LINK to my “Shutters” board. There are lots of different styles of shutters and tastes to decorate your desired room, you can take a look at West Pier Shutters, and see whether these are the right style to suit your home. They are incredibly impressive, add so much light into any household, making it beautifully lifted and they are also super easy to use. Though, if you have any doubts about your ability to install them, consider that you can fit out your home for around £1,500 ($2,250) through a respectable company. Not a bad price for these results!

I found 2 sets of shutters at Goodwill for only $12.99 a set, or $6.50 each. I’m not sure who actually buys shutters from Goodwill since they need to be such a specific size. I would have had to have research custom plantation shutters in Richmond, VA, or another area that is a bit closer to me, to able to find some to fit my windows. Still, it means that they are a great price and can be used to do some crafting.

As for the Shutter Sign itself – there isn’t much to this craft:

  1. Find an old shutter
  2. Purchase a variety of letters at a craft store (mine came from Michael’s)
  3. Use nails to hang the letters on the shutter
  4. All Done!


This was my favorite letter.


The “S” was moss covered foam. It was the only letter that didn’t have a hanger on the back, so I just hammered in the nail and then pushed the foam letter into the nail.

The cute little flower had a magnet on the back, so once again I hammered in a nail and the flower stuck right to it.

While I was buying the letters, I picked up a the rest of the letters I’d need (u, m, m, and e) to switch it from “spring” to “summer.” Which is coming quicker than I wish it would! This project was created using old shutters, therefore I will be visiting shuttercraft-bedford.co.uk to see whether they stock any shutters that fit the style of my bathroom!

Until then… Happy Spring!
