Shutter Makeover

I found this poor shutter in a pile of garbage and saved it from a landfill. It was missing some slats so I removed the entire middle portion and cleaned it up. After adding a light layer of colorful chalk paint, I tried adding some chicken wire. Unfortunately I could’t find an easy way to keep the end from being exposed  which can be painful if your fingers catch it just right. So instead I took some twine and stapled it across the inside edges and added some cute little clothes pins I purchased at my local craft store. Another creative way to display your favorite memories.
