Here on the Unconsumption Tumblr, we’ve showcased walls covered in salvaged doors and reclaimed pallet wood (both installations by Piet Hein Eek — his work is fantastic, isn’t it?), wine corks, library cards, pieces of broken skateboard decks, used Netflix envelopes, wallpaper made from newsprint strips, and a host of other materials.
And we’ve come across examples of shutters repurposed for a variety of non-window-covering purposes, like wall-mounted storage and small-space vertical gardening, and made into furniture, such as this side table and headboard.
But we haven’t featured a wall covered in shutters — until now!
Photos of this wall have been circulating for quite some time on Pinterest, which is where I spotted it (here). Original source: OliveandLove blog — click through for DIY / how-to information.
If you’re in the U.S. or Canada and looking for shutters to use either on or off your windows, check with your nearest Habitat for Humanity ReStore shop. I’ve found that ReStore locations often have used shutters in stock.
Have you spotted other uses for shutters? If so, let us know.
