How to Make a folding screen using old hinges and
shutters
2
1. Lay the shutters side by side on a worktable,
and align their bottoms using a straightedge.
(Shutter heights may vary, so be sure to use the
bottoms as the baseline when taking measurements.)

2. Arrange one pair of hinges along the gap
between two shutters, about a foot down from the
top, and the other the same distance up from the
bottom. Measure from the bottom of the shutters
to the bottom edge of the hinge leaves and mark
their locations.
3. Using a combination square, transfer those
marks to the back of the third shutter to
position the second pair of hinges.

4. Use your pencil to mark the locations of the
screw holes. Then, remove the hinges and bore the
holes for their fasteners. 5. Reposition the
hinges and drive in the screws. 6. Push soft
vinyl furniture glides into the bottom corners of
the two end shutters to help level the screen and
prevent it from scuffing up your floors when you
move it.
7. Set up your finished screen, and kick back
with a book.
