This was another late Christmas gift. The plastic (but sturdy) shutters were given to me, and all I was told to do was make a shelf… I just ran with the idea. With a good sanding and washing, some crackle paint in my high-tech spray booth, and three new distressed white oak shelves, the shutters were reborn as a rustic shelf! Comments and critiques welcome… thanks for looking!
