Shutters are such a unique and stunning way to give your boring white walls or drab living room a stunning makeover. Not only are shutters great statement pieces, they are cheap ones too! You can find vintage, shabby shutters for next to nothing at yard sales and Goodwill, or you can find them for fairly cheap ($25-$50) on Etsy. Forget spending a fortune on artwork, try one of these gorgeous shutter DIYs instead!
If you're ready for a serious room overhaul, this shutter wallpaper is perfect for you! Made by the extremely talented Laura of Olive and Love, this wallpaper idea is unique, stunning and creates the perfect backdrop for any living space. To make the wall really stand out, she painted the shutters in different colors. Because this wall is so busy and a statement on its own, stick to colors in the pastel or neutral category to avoid an eyesore. The pale blues, light greens and grays in Laura's wall complements her dark wood furniture exquisitely. This DIY will require more digging to find shutters in all different sizes and can cost you up to $1,000 if you have to buy each one.

If the thought of completely covering your wall in shutters is a bit too much for you, give this DIY shutter garden a try! It transforms a shabby antique shutter into a fabulous indoor garden using Mason jars and a hot glue gun! If you're not much of a gardener and don't want plants in the jars, add some luminarias or potpourri to get the same look and feel. This shutter is an incredible addition to any living room, dining room, sunroom, beach house or even bedroom.

Tired of cluttering up your table or drawers with mail, magazine clippings, important reminders and tickets? Better yet, want a pretty place to store all these so you don't lose them? Upcycle an outdoor window shutter into a bulletin board! Not only will this make organizing your important documents and what-not easier, it adds some country chic charm to your home office or kitchen. This particular project by Monica of The Craft Nest makes organizing even more chic by installing the shutters as doors so you can hide the bulletin board for a sleeker look.
