DIY Repurposed Shutter

I have mentioned this before, but I enjoy finding new ways to reuse and repurpose old items in my home. I hate throwing things away before finding out if I can give it a makeover.

For today’s blog post, I am showing how I updated an old shutter with paint and flowers.


I’m in the process of decorating my house for Spring, so I made sure this project was bright and colorful.

Continue reading below for the instructions and inspiration.




  • Clean any dirt or debris on the shutter.


  • In a well-ventilated area, spray paint the shutter. I used about 2-3 coats of the paint.




The spray paint made by Valspar is pretty impressive. I could spray multiple coats in a shorter amount of time, and there wasn’t any excessive dripping.

  • Add flowers to the shutter by pushing the stems through the panels.



  • Continue arranging the flowers in a design of your choice.


  • The shutter is now ready to display. You can add other decorations and embellishments to it or just leave it as is.



I love turning trash into treasure!
