Adding an interesting backdrop for your decor is a good way to make a strong statement. We accomplished this by creating a folding screen from a couple of rustic doors and some hinges. You can find all sorts of doors at antique and salvage stores.
To create the side panels, cut one of the doors in half. Rest the door on sawhorses, and clamp down a 1x4 to guide a circular saw straight down the centerline.
Screw two hinges to both sides of the center panel. When attaching each side panel, place it on spacer boards to position the hinges along the cut edge.
When embellishing your tri-fold screen, have some fun with the door theme! Antique doorknobs make great hooks, oversized keys can be fun accents, and wreaths are always wonderful door hangings.
