Well I should say decorating with a shutter in my screened porch, because I only have one shutter to show you today! I got two shutters at a neighborhood garage sale last year (you can see the before here) and yes, it’s taken me over a year to do anything with them. Hopefully I’m not the only slow poke around here when it comes to projects! I love decorating with shutters, so I hope to be able to get to other one soon!
Anyway, I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with them. There are so many ways you can use old shutters (check out my 10 Ways to Use Old Shutters post if you need ideas).

I repainted it to look chippy and white and hung it next to my patio doors and hung stuff off of it. Like this tin star which I spray painted an apple green (cause green is my screen porch color this year).
We also got this copper clock/thermometer at Home Depot and hung that on the shutter too.
I was only going to use one shutter in here and make the other one into a console table, but I like the way this one looks so much that I’m going to add the other one to the other side!
Besides adding the shutter, I also re-worked my Indoor Succulent Garden
And this is what they look like now on my outdoor buffet. I wanted to keep them outside and was looking for a pot and remembered that I had this chamber pot. Which worked perfectly!
I divided a spider plant that made a miraculous comeback (I really thought it died because I had it outside during the winter and it was all brown and dead looking). It bounced back and was a big root bound plant so I divided it up into little plants. I replanted one into a green pot I already had (Target from last year I think) and now it sits on my outdoor buffet.
That’s all that’s new out on my porch until I get that other shutter painted and up!
