Vintage Shutter Cup Rack
I have a decent sized kitchen with a fair amount of storage space but with white cabinets, pale tan walls and a dark stain wood floor, it was definitely in need of some color! I decided on a teal color palette and have added a few little things here and there, but what I really wanted was something that would be eye catching while also being functional. I love functional art and I also love organizing and this piece offers both!
I had all these cups that were taking up my cabinet space and I knew I wanted to do something with them, but I hadn't figured out what. Then one day while perusing Varagesale, I came cross these vintage teal shutters. They were gorgeous! They had such an awesome shape, not just plain squared edges, they were tall and narrow and best of all, they were the perfect color. No painting required. I didn't hesitate and within a few days, they were mine (for only $35!).
