This is a clever party link that I thought you might appreciate. It is from Alicia at Happy Ever Forever, I know I have seen these screens, and if you need to hide some stuff this is a great idea. (or if you want to make a modern screen check out my tutorial here)
Saturday I started re-finishing this lovely divider I found at D.I. for $5!
First we took out the remaining glass/mat combo’s. And then cleaned it up. We took it outside and re-spray painted it black to hide the nick’s and dings. After it looked like this:
Ahhh already so much better! The next thing we did was cut a bunch of cardboard to fit the square holes. I just used one of the mat’s as a stencil.
Then we kept on cutting. First was the batting cut a 1/2 inch smaller than the cardboard on all sides.
The next thing you will do is cut your fabric and hopefully you have a nice husband like me that will iron it ALL for you.
Stick the cardboard piece’s in the divider. They fit right in so you don’t need to glue them in or anything! And TA-DA you have a beautiful new divider!
I think it is a great idea for updating a
room divider on the cheap.
What do you all think?
