So I'm excited to post a non-sewing project so I can show off my jane-of-all-trades-ness; I've refurbished a few furniture items but I think this is the most involved building I've ever done of a piece of furniture.
I bought these salvaged wooden shutters at a pretty awesome salvaged/antique housewares store in North Minneapolis. Normally I prefer to get things like that very cheap or free, ie save them myself from someone's alleyway garbage pile, but I liked the store and it was easy to find 3 matching undamaged, still pretty solid shutters of the height I wanted.
Anywho, I hinged the three panels of the divider together and painted it blue. That's about it. (I really love this color and I would love to paint my bedroom in it, but my lease forbids it so I compromised by making a freestanding wall of sorts in it.)
The purpose of the divider is that we have a very nice porch where we like to entertain, but you have to walk through our somewhat unkempt bedroom to get there, so I can just put this up to hide our offending messiness from the delicate eyes of our guests. Note the teeming laundry basket peeking out from behind.
