Decorating with Shutters Made Useful

I have always loved the look of shutters. There is just something about the texture of the lines.

I love this idea of using a shutter to hold the mail. This sure would help us get all that stuff off of our refrigerator and make it look more quaint.

What a great idea to take something so decorative and make it useful. Lately, I am more about just using what we have, except I know it is hard to find real wooden shutters like this anymore. Everything is plastic! I'd have to hit the antique shops just for a shutter.
