Make Your Own Folding Privacy Screen With A Few Interior Door Slabs

Folding privacy screens are versatile, useful pieces of furniture that can change up your living space. Even better, they’re easy to make. All you need are three simple interior door slabs and some hinges.

This DIY tutorial comes via Apartment Therapy. They use these simple, hollow wooden interior doors from Home Depot. Closet doors like those work well, but you could also use thick plywood. From there, all you need are four narrow brass hinges and, if you’re feeling fancy, some wallpaper.

Prep your slabs with the wallpaper (or even paint), then screw the hinges onto the panels. You can stack two panels on top of each other, screw on the hinges, then add the third panel and screw hinges on the opposite side of the stack. Apartment Therapy illustrates this with a diagram in the full post, which you can check out at the link below.
