+30 Easy and Cool DIY Shutter Ideas

My mother was an interior designer. My entire life I saw her working on several interior design decorating ideas and I used to get thrilled. Working on the interior design decoration ideas to help my mother was my favourite hobby. One of the many things that I learned from my mother was how to bring old things to life. Yes, décor interior design is not about going to fancy interior decoration courses and buying things off the market to work on your project. There are a lot of things that one can do in order to work on the interior design & decoration of the house.

After I graduated from my college with a degree in business, I decided to combine my knowledge of interior design & decoration with my degree and started my own business of interior designing. I didn’t want to run a company that robs people by charging them a huge amount of money for literally everything. I don’t want people to think that ‘I shouldn’t hire someone to decorate my house because of my low budget”. I wanted to have something for everyone in my business line.

To work on my idea of being an interior design & decoration company that is easy on the pocket, I decided to incorporate my mother’s way of using old things and then transforming them into something new. I started with small projects and would ask people what they wanted to have in their house and if they had anything to get ride off. Since most of the projects that I have worked on were very old houses and buildings, which is why I got the chance to play around the shutters and to use them in my interior design decorating ideas. I was amazed at how much can be done with an old piece of the shutter. I used them in several projects and transformed them into different things. If you think that shutter can only be used in the windows then you are in for a huge surprise. There is so much that can be done with the old shutters. You can make an entire wall out of it or use it as a centrepiece on your table. One of the best things about working on the interior design decorating ideas that involve working on the shutter is that it is extremely budget friendly. Today, I will share some interior design decorating ideas that involved shutters.

One of the first projects that I did for a family was making a new wall for their living room. They had a few old shutters in their house, so I decided to get a few more of them from the market and paint them in different colours. I attached all of those shutters to the wall and there I had a brand new wall for them.
