Whip out 2 white shutters and a paintbrush & mimic this hanging DIY

Need a quick fix for that blank wall in your living room or bedroom? Upcycle old shutters into wall art with plenty of architectural appeal. This project is perfect for hanging above a bed without a big headboard, but it would also look lovely above a statement sofa in your living room.
Don’t worry if you can’t find old shutters in the exact size as the ones used in this project. Instead of four small shutters, you could also use two large ones and hang them horizontally. The key is to be mindful of how the size of your materials balances out with nearby decor, such as a mirror.
