Old Door Privacy Screen

    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.

    Thank You for sharing this. I recently replaced my front door and want to use the old door in the new outdoor shower we are putting in . My hubby thought it would look tacky. I cant wait to show him this!
