Shutters or bi-fold doors are easily found at the curb or thrift stores.  This project was made from a bi-fold door that I cut in half.

Step 1: Remove every other slat

You will need to remove every other slat. You can do this by using a claw hammer to break the slat you're removing. I used my Dremel Max to flush cut every other slat.
I really like this idea, thanks for posting! We've been looking into getting some new <a href="http://www.grahams.ca" rel="nofollow">shutters in Kitchener</a>. I honestly think it would be so fun to make my own. Thanks for the inspiration.
Love it! Unfortunately, I just gave away my old shutters ;(
Awesome idea! Like it!
Clever! I think my dwell subscription would do quite well on one of these :).
Thank you very much.
This is so cute and very handy to have! Awesome idea!
Thanks so much! I like quick and easy projects ever now and again!<br><br>gail
