Here's what it looked like before.
I propped it up on a bench I had outside on my back porch.
Next, I used this board and a clamp to hold it down, so I could cut a straight line.
I used the clamped down board as my guide for the skill saw to help me cut a straight line.
I kept the two hinges on the upper part and took off the bottom hinge that was on the lower part.
Of course, I have to hang on to the extra hinge. Never know when it will come into use.
Here's my screw collection. I like to reuse them too.
I placed the upper part in the middle and tucked the individual bottom parts behind it.
Our fireplace is see-through from the bedroom to the living room.
Now we have some shabby-chic-style privacy!
Check out this other project I made out of bi-fold doors.
