Old Door Privacy Screen

I used old doors from our 1938 home to make this privacy screen for our backyard. I used to hinges to attach them to each other. I painted them and sealed them with Helmsman since it would be outside. For more pictures, and outside decor ideas visit my blog at www.notjustahousewife.net

    I would love to do this but don't find many old doors which are expensive if bought new. I may try to create a door panel by cutting plywood and put 1" x 4" on the edges. My plan would be to hinge them together to make a screen.

    Excellent. I am sure this can also be done with window shutters. You may want to find a way to lift them off the grass so the bottom has a chance to dry.

    I wish we could find doors like this in our area. I need to make a trip across the United States and pick up things along the way. I love the doors. I would like to do the same. I might have to use shutters instead.
