Before & After: Yard Sale Folding Screen

Before & After: Yard Sale Folding Screen

We finally got around to enhancing our living room folding screen that we scored at a yard sale a few months ago. Clearly the screen was lovely enough to remain the way it was but as always we were looking for something with a little more pop so here's what we did...

Snagging some fabric remnants from our craft supplies and a template we made of the inner square of each panel we made 9 cutouts and glued them to the back of the screen with a glue gun. (Do believe the hype about glue guns - they rock.) We were going to put a solid colored piece of fabric on the back of the entire panels but once we saw the green fabric against the color of our walls, we decided they were just right.

Have you ever modified a folding screen or made your own from scratch?
