Country Cupboard To transform this bookcase into a cupboard, add a pair of pretty shutters with a touch of country character. We ordered these cut-to-fit shutters from www.diyshutters.com. Or you can search your local home center. After sanding, priming, and painting the pieces, hang the shutters on the bookcase with cabinetry hinges. Top it off with a forge-iron shutter bolt to secure the doors closed.
The inside panels of the cupboard doors were removed, and chicken wire was tacked to the inside. A panel of fabric was then attatched to the inside of the cupboard doors. You could skip the fabric or use a sheer or lace panel for a more open look. If you get bored with your look and want a change, it's as simple as switching fabric!
