Build this screen to create distinct areas in an open-concept space. You can complete this project in just one day and six easy steps!
Please note that the measurements apply to the front and back of the screen.
What you'll need :
• Frame: Boulanger rectangular moldings nº 09565027 cut in 6 pieces of 72” and 11 pieces of 14½”• Trims: Boulanger coves nº 09565543 cut at 45º in 4 pieces of 12½”, 4 pieces of 48¼”, 4 pieces of 42¼”, 4 pieces of 18 5/8”, 4 pieces of 61 5/8”, 12 pieces of 8” and 32 pieces of 14½”• Black paint, Behr Black Suede nº S-H-790• Saw, paint brush, wood glue, hammer, nails, scissors, stapler• 2.20 metres of fabric, Signature Washington by Val Abel• Transparent acrylic sheet of 18” x 24” x 0.08" cut in 3 rectangles of 14” x 7¾” each• Frosted glass spray finish• Sealer• 8 hinges of 2.15”
STEP 1 :
Using a saw, cut the moldings for the frames and the coves for the trims following the dimensions in the plan provided. Paint them black and let dry. Glue and nail the moldings to create the frames of each panel.
STEP 2 :
Cut the fabric in pieces according to the dimensions in the plan provided. Add ½” all around for the edges to staple onto the moldings. Make sure to cut two pieces of each, for the front and back of the panels. Using the stapler, staple the fabric pieces on the inside of each frame. Make sure to properly stretch out the fabric.
STEP 3 :
Nail the coves on the inside of the frames to hide the staples and to create a nicely finished look.
STEP 4 :
With the saw, cut the acrylic into three rectangles following the dimensions in the plan. Spray a thin layer of frosted glass finish on both sides of the acrylic rectangles, and let dry. Nail the coves to the frame, rest the acrylic rectangles against the coves, nail the remaining coves to the back side of the frame to secure the acrylic rectangles in place.
STEP 5 :
Camouflage the holes with sealer and let dry. Apply some black paint over the sealer for an even finish.
STEP 6 :
Install the hinges as per the plan provided to assemble the screen’s panels.
Fabric availability is subject to change without notice. Any drapery fabric is suitable for this project.
