Decorating your Camp/Cottage or Home with salvaged shutters and windows

Sometimes we come across a stash of old wooden windows or shutters, and we wonder what can we do with these?  Click on the link below to see how some homeowners have repurposed old windows and shutters.

In the Caribbean, old-fashioned shutters like the ones in the photo above, were used a lot to allow the movement of breezes to pass through and cool the interior of the building. Hurricane shutters are used to protect the glass in windows and doors from smashing during high winds and rains.
