diy barnyard shutters

my latest creation are these shutters...I'm not exactly happy with them, I need to paint them a different color...they turned out chalky white but I really need to get an antique white...

The picture basically explains itself. I bought fence wood so it was maybe 3 bucks to make both shutters?
We have a table saw so I just cut the wood to the length I wanted then screwed the opposite direction wood to the verticle ones.  (wow, I am so horrible and explaining things)

Then I added a small ledge so I could put i vase or a cute owl on them

here is a close up...see how it clashes?   The shutters definitely need to be repainted.
other than that I love how they turned out...just need to experiment more with paint colors.
Thanks for looking, check out other blogs here:


  1. Thank you so much for sharing this--I love it! We have to take down our old fence so I could make a million of these:) I am going to pin this and copy you--hope that's okay:)

  2. Super cute! I've also got a lot of old fencing that would be perfect for this project. Thanks for sharing! :-) (Newest Follower)
