Lace door cabinet


Add a pretty, lace screen door to a shelf unit to hide the bathroom clutter inside.

1. Gut two lengths of hardwood to the height of the unit, and two pieces to the width of the unit minus 20cm (8in). Sand the ends to remove any splinters, then glue them together to make a doorframe.

2. When the glue is dry screw mending plates across the loins of the wood inside of the door. Fix the doorknob on to the outside of the door and then paint the door with primer and allow to dry.

3. Lightly sand the shelving unit inside and out and paint with primer. Leave to dry, then paint both the door and the unit with coloured oil-based paint. Allow to dry.

4. Hem the fabric on all four edges and fix it on to the back of the door using upholstery tacks. Hold the door in place on the unit and mark where you want to position the hinges on the frame and unit. Drill holes and screw the hinges into place.
