I had a customer that wanted me to make a matching end table.  Well matching was impossible so I made two.  Now I can recycle the legs of the other stand.  The wood was reclaimed.  I bought 8 shutters for 7.99 at Savers. The spindle was 48in so I cut in half to make 2 legs.  I paid about 1.25 for each at an auction.  The balls for the feet and the top was bought for penneys on the dollar at Ys buy.  So it was an end table for less than $7.00
Well here it is..  All hand made with found items.  The mirror is a vanity mirror I found at a tag sale for 2.50.  She just loved it.  We had to set it up immediately. The big shutters were curb side pick ups as well as the wood  for the  shelves. 
And here it is semi decorated.  I need to search JMS to see how you showed me to attach cards to the top shutters.  She also wants candles so I will attach them after market. LOL  to the top shutters.

Seeing ya'll having so much fun with shutters, I went into a buying frinzy when I saw them.  I have sizes from 12 in to 72 inches.  These were so much fun to make as well as a little challenging too.,
