Give old wood new life by having it made into shutters and doors. They may look like authentic antiques, but the courtyard shutters are newly crafted with old wood Gary found at a lumberyard. The wood came from weathered timbers on which new wood was being stacked. Gary added new distressed hardware so they can be easily functional.
