I shutter to tell you...

5.1 007
Yes, another unbelievable find. While driving around a neighborhood garage sale, I made a wrong turn and stumbled upon these FREE wood shutters. There were four large ones and two small ones. As usual I couldn't pass them up because I just know I can find a use for them. Hinged together the four large ones would make a fun privacy screen on my front porch, maybe they would work as winter wind/snow buffers on the back screen porch, and you know they would make the best headboard.

Please take the garage sale survey on the side bar. I am looking to get feedback from 100 bloggers. The results will be used in an upcoming article I am working on for my Thrifty Shopping column on examiner.com.
Thanks for stopping by...
