Cut Out Screen Pieces
Take MDF board (standard size 48 x 80 inches) and cut down to the height you would like. For this project we cut ours down to 60 inches and were left with 48 x 60 inches. We then took that board and made three cuts to get three 16-inch-wide pieces. Lightly sand new edges.
Apply Chalkboard Paint
Since this folding screen will be reversible, you're going to paint one side with chalkboard paint. Use a mini foam roller to apply three layers of chalkboard paint. Let dry.
Upholster Reverse Side of Screen
Lay out quilt batting and cut to size (Image 1). A razor blade makes it easy to trim excess (Image 2). Use spray adhesive to adhere.
