Reclaimed and Reuse

We joined three reclaimed shutters with some new lumber to create this unique headboard. Scour consignment and salvage shops to find old shutters. The shutters we used are 10” x 64”. You may need to adjust the size depending on the size of your shutters and the size of your bed. We made our headboard for a full-size bed, so our finished dimensions are 33-1/2” high x 59” wide x 2-1/4” deep.
