The shutters and drawers were found at the local dump. I cleaned them up, and then sanded them a bit, other than that i did not alter the color. For the shutters i removed the knobs and hinges, fliped them over and used the back as the front. I placed 2 hinges in the middle of the shutters to hold them together. For the drawers I had my husband cut of the bottom edge of the drawer front so they would be flush against the wall. I removed the drawer pulls from the front of the drawer and put them on the inside as an accent. I hung the shelf with 2 screws and placed the shutter on top! The best thing about this project, it cost me nothing at all! You cant get a toliet topper like this at Home Depot!
