today I want all us show you how you can dress up a new roller shutter box.
In addition, I also integrative still existing curtain with.
Who does not have a roller shutter box can also install only the paneling on the wall.
I am happy to see again how to do it step by step.
Materials and tools should be selected according to personal needs of each.
Of materials you need: 3 pieces of square wood, a curtain rod of wood or metal, wood boards (if it comes from a pallet).
On tools you need: hand saw, drill, drill, drill hole saw for wood or flat drills, dowels, screws (various sizes), screwdriver, ruler, pencil, level.
Color I have not used since I wanted the natural, weathered patina of the wood.
Scaffold struts 3
in the pursuit notches are incorporated so that the curtain rod can be inserted
so it looks when the curtain rod is inserted
Each page consists of boards 4

to remove the curtain simply unscrews the appropriate boards
here's the final result
