Old Door Privacy Screen

Outside 11.10.14
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

    Pam D, yes the side light doors are what he has. Some have stained glass, some have beveled glass with the TX star and all have some decorative glass in them. Very pretty and never used. Some still have the paper on them from the manufacturer.

    Brenda, then I would leave the glasses just the way they are. Mix then up when hindging them together. I think that would make a beautiful privacy screen.If they are not very wide since they are not regular door widths, You ay want to attach every 2

    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!
