Step 3: Remove Excess Paint

I was a little lazy in painting the shutters and got a good amount of paint on the main frame.  Since the shutter is plastic I used some rubbing alcohol to remove the paint. 
I love this! I bought two shutters from a yard sale yeeeaaarrrrsss ago and was almost convinced to get rid of them since they sat in the garage the entire time but I changed my mind when I came upon your instructable! Can't wait to get started; I will now have two Christmas gifts to give away!
Thats awesome and makes me so happy! Make sure you post pictures!!<br /><br />:)
i love this idea <br>
Food for Thought-Cup hooks could be added on the white frame to hang your keys.
What a great idea! THx for posting!
What a Fab idea! It has got me thinking that I may try it .I have a couple of shutter doors I could utilize.Thanks for this one ****
I have a shutter that was repurposed into a phone directory about 15 years ago. Someone cross stitched across the top &quot;Blessed are the brief, for they have fewer phone bills.&quot; The shutter flips up to disclose all those important phone calls (we now carry all that on cell phones..cept me..lol) And to top it off, I mounted an antique reproduction phone next to it. We do answer phone calls on the phone at times , but for the most part, we quit using it about 5 years ago and its more so a decoration. Even though we still use land line phones in our house and I have penciled some more recent phone numbers in there, usually we get a call and its on the ID, so we just call them back. The phone works but has a push button system put in where it looks like a rotary phone, and there is a box for note paper and pencils. We added a 15ft chord to the french style phone hand set.
Great idea!!!
pure genius
Muy buena idea fantastico!!
