Recycled shutter foot locker

This is the second foot locker I made from recycled shutters. I stripped the material down then painted it white, then black. I let it dry overnight then sanded through the paint randomly and then applied stain and then finally two coats of polyurethane to give the material a deep color and aged look. I repurposed some leftover plywood and stained it to emphasize the wood grain.

  • Awesome work! This one looks just as good as the other one. Thanks for sharing the details of the finish. You really did a great job on that too.
