From the blogger: "Hey guys, well you’ve already heard me rant and rave about the terrible place our electrician put our electric panel: Right by our front door! I had been at the drawing board about this problem all last winter before I finally had a light bulb moment! We had one extra fence panel leftover from when we put up our privacy fence so I thought I could make something like a room divider out of it… I got to work."

Estimated Cost$21-$30

Time to CompleteIn an evening

Primary TechniqueGardening



Materials List

  • Privacy fence panel
  • White paint and brush
  • Six outdoor hinges
  • Outdoor screws
  • Electric drill/screw driver
  • Reciprocating saw (or jig saw or even a hand saw would work fin here)

DIY Project Instructions

  1. Cut your fence panel into three separate panels for a three sided divider like the one shown here (I cut it so there would be four slats a piece on each panel)

  2. Screw two of the panels together with three hinges then flip it all over and attach the third panel with the same treatment but attaching the hinges on the other side (so it hinges in opposite directions)

  3. Dry brush the white paint all over it

  4. Put it in place.
