Upcycled: New Ways With Old Window Shutters

I've always loved the look of vintage wood shutters on a home, they have such a quaint, old world feel.  Now you can take that look and move it from outside, to inside your home by upcycling old shutters into new home decor. 

Check out these creative new looks gleaned from old salvaged shutters.
