It is easy to make a fun and functional shelf out of an old shutter, shelf brackets, and some hooks — and everything you need for this project can be purchased at the Twin Cities Habit ReStore for less than $15!
ReStore's Jan Hagerman demonstrates the DIY craft project in this edition of ReStoration Corner.
The shutters are easy to prepare. Take off all the hardware, paint with a fun color, then screw the shutter back together so it's rigid.
You treat the shelf brackets the same way. Paint them a fun color.
For the hooks, you can use vintage doorknobs, modern hooks, even wrought iron.
Attach the shutters to the shelf supports at a right angle to form the shelf. Add the hooks, and you're ready to hang leashes, bathrobes, or anything else.
