- 4 hinged shutters
- Tape measure
- ¾" medium- density fiberboard (MDF)
- 12 L-brackets and screws
- Four 2" wrap-around hinges (from 97¢ each; at hardware stores)
- Bun feet (from .79 each; at hardware stores)
- Latex paint
- 2 cabinet knobs
- Sand away any peeling paint or blemishes, then use pliers to remove the tilt rod from two hinged shutters (these will be the sides of the cabinet).
- Lay out the shutters vertically (one shutter deep by two shutters wide) to determine the size of your cabinet. Measure the width and depth for the cabinet top, bottom and interior shelf. Then measure the height from bottom shelf to top for the cabinet backing. At the hardware store, have four pieces of MDF cut to these measurements.
- To assemble the cabinet, use interior L-brackets to screw the bottom shelf to the shutter sides (wait to fully tighten all screws until every piece is in place). Then, attach the MDF back in the same manner, then the shelf and top.
- Use wrap-around hinges to attach the shutter doors with the tilt rod facing out. Make sure the sides line up and the doors open smoothly, then tighten all screws to fully secure.
- Lay the cabinet on its back and follow package directions to screw bun feet to the bottom; stand the cabinet back up.
- Apply one to two coats of paint to the cabinet in your desired color and let dry. Then, use screws to attach knobs to the front doors, as shown.
