Find your inventive and totally original folding display in the backyard and add a few wheels and fabric for its new function in the home. Narrow wood Grass Care service Bakersfield, CA trellises may be hinged with and covered in cloth panels for sturdy, simple-to-assemble decorative screens to conceal a home office, give the baby personal space in the bedroom, or display an awkward corner. Use different fabric on each side of the display for more versatile decor.
Clean up three or four near-identical, narrow rectangular Grass Care price Fort Lauderdale trellises to serve as the sturdy base of a brand new folding display. Brush or scrape off any dirt or old dried vines, sand off the worst of flaking, peeling paint and then wipe down the trellises using a clean, moist cloth.
Prime the washed and sanded trellises and paint them, if wanted. Otherwise, spray or brush them with clear matte polyurethane to make them easier to stay clean.
Cut two 1/8-inch plywood panels to match the frame of every trellis. Sand any rough edges, mark the panel for screws at each of the corners and in the middle of their long sides. Vary the markings so that panels may be attached to the fronts and backs of their trellis without the screws overlapping. Drill holes in the panels and then tap a nail into every mark on the trellises as a starter hole to the wood screw.
Cut fabric panels for every single piece of plywood, 2 inches bigger than the plywood, all the way around. Cut one piece of batting per panel, the exact same size as the panel. Glue the batting to one side of every plywood panel, then marking the spot for every drilled hole. Let the adhesive dry.
Stretch the fabric above the padded panels, pulling it taut and stapling down it securely on the rear side of each panel. Leave a small area around each drilled hole free, cutting cautious slits so the rest of the cloth is pulled taut around the plywood and a narrow flap is sealed. Trim the excess fabric from the back of the plywood.
Expand the fabric-covered panels to the trellises, throughout the batting. Then poke some adhesive under the free parts of fabric and then press them to the panels at the screws and also along the edge of the plywood. Trim the excess from the now-glued cloth parts.
Hinge the panels together, 4 to 6 inches from the top and bottom, to form a single long folding display. Glue small strips of suede in the underside edges of the trellises to protect floors and discourage the display from slipping.
