Painted Screen

Portable folding screens have been used in the home for centuries.  They are used to cordon off space for dressing, to divide a room or to shield the sun coming from a window or heat from a fireplace.  I am particularly fond of the two painted screens below.  I know its ambitious, but I think I could construct and paint something similar.  Mine certainly won't be as detailed or beautiful, but I think I could achieve a similar affect. What do you think - possible DIY?

P.S.  Charlie is back from his MRI and feeling his normal self again. We won't have any results for a few days, so I'll keep you posted.  Thanks to everyone of you for your positive thoughts and kind words of support.  We feel it!

Totally do-able DIYs, but I know the limits of my painting skills.

Hope you four have an extraordinary weekend!

Use hollow core doors, folding screen hinges and a gorgeous wallpaper…easy easy easy, screw the paint.
