    Have you thought about a nice, lined fabric? Maybe similar to window treatment, pillows, or whatever might be near the furniture when you are finished with the project? Can't wait to see how they come out--and talk about a bargain!!!

    You can use plywood attached with overlay hinges. If you want to dress it up, use plaster and stencil raised designs or use some decorative molding. If you can find picture frames the right size, you can put plywood, cardboard. wire mesh or fabric in the middle and use them for doors.

    these would be a great start to a kitchen island if you placed them back to back too provided you have the floor space, like the ideas above, great find!
  • love all the ideas thank you! Dianne they came from the ReStore . I check every friday to see what they have

    Leave them open. Wallpaper or paint inside and stored pots or whatever will look awesome.

    Those are awesome! Depends on what tools you have to work with, but a nice sheet of birch plywood and some trim would work well!

    adding fabric curtains to be just inside the openings would be really nice, go to a quilt store where you will find good quality long lasting fabric and lots of sales...you could match these to your window curtains by keeping in same color family or making all to match.

    I'm really late for this and think you have finished your project but just want to share - my favorite thrift shop here often has pieces of fabric that work well for smaller jobs.
