Quick Tip #35: Shutters Turned Dish Rack

{click to enlarge}

Here is tip number three in our Décor Quick Tip series about reclaimed louvre shutters. This is one of the more unique and creative uses for shutters that I’ve come across on the net…

#35  Convert an old louvre screen panel into a quirky shabby chic display rack for your crockery and dishes that can also double as a drying rack. Use brackets to create a louvre shelf – the shutter’s tilt bar will ensure that your dishes won’t slip through the slat openings. You can even attach some hooks to hang cups from. Another interesting way to utilise your shutter panel is to remove all the slats and fix it to your wall vertically – your plates can now slot into recesses perfectly.
