I just love rust and old shutters.  The old louvered closet doors are exactly the right width for enclosing those old industrial shelves.
Not only are they ideal for enclosing the sides, the shutters make beautiful backs and stabilizers for these warehouse beauties.
As you can see, I love rust!  This effect was fun to produce with a bit of paint, naval jelly, and a bit of light sanding.

I love heavy industrial steel shelving.  They are storage and decor essentials if you're like "us".  I salvaged these beauties from a long-defunct chemical laboratory and gave them a happy finish while keeping the rust.  The addition of shutters to the ends and the backs was the best idea I've had in a while!
