Canton Finds: Shutters (plus DIY idea!)

I am loving shutters these days... Thats sort of a strange thing to say, but I just love how people are taking old shutters...big or small, shiny or rustic...and are turning them into fun new crafty DIY decor!
Here are some shutters my mom & I saw at Canton last month... so many sizes & colors! And these were found in the outdoor "flea market" section, so I'm sure they were super cheap.

Luckily my mother-in-law gave me a few of her old shutters when cleaning out her garage, so I didn't have to buy any! I simply spray painted some small shutters bright yellow & nailed them to the wall... In my opinion you can do the shutters with or without pictures or prints. Check out the DIY instructions that I guest-blogged over at Vintage Indie!
