Reversible Folding Screen

Who would guess that the polished reversible screen at left is made from unfinished bifold doors (about $70 a pair) from a home improvement store? To make the screen more versatile, finish one side with a colorful paint treatment, and cover the other in a textured fabric such as burlap or linen.

Because the screen is made of wood, consider using a semigloss or high-gloss paint, and select a three-color palette. This screen is trimmed in white to blend with the wood trim in the room. Other coordinating shades highlight the panels.
