PROJECT 1 SCREEN THE TOI­LET

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Bathroom Revamp -

Here’s how

STEP 1 Mea­sure dis­tance from floor to ceil­ing. To find the length of the dow­els, deduct 214mm to al­low for the legs and top and bot­tom rails. Cut to length us­ing mitre saw or sharp hand­saw and mitre box.

STEP 2 Mark top and bot­tom rails for cen­tre of dow­els. Make first mark 35mm from one end, then space them 70mm apart. Pre-drill then coun­ter­sink rails for screws.

STEP 3 Pre-drill dowel for screws through cen­tre of ends. Ap­ply glue to one end of each dowel.

STEP 4 Butt dow­els into base rail. Screw through rail into dow­els us­ing 65mm screws to se­cure. Glue and screw top rail to other end of dow­els.

STEP 5 At­tach fur­ni­ture feet to base rails us­ing sup­plied screws.

STEP 6 Ap­ply 2 coats of clear var­nish to screen. Al­low to dry and sand lightly be­tween coats. STEP 7 Po­si­tion the screen and pre-drill through the top rail into the ceil­ing. Move the screen and insert Wall­mate fix­ings into holes in ceil­ing. Re­po­si­tion the screen and screw through the top rail into Wall­mates. Ad­just feet so they are tight against the floor and the screen won’t move.
