Best & Easy Way Of Putting Fabric In Louvered Doors
If you want to put the fabric in louvered doors, you can do so very easy, you simply need to go through the below-mentioned step by step way carefully and achieve the desired result of your process:
- First of all, carefully insert the tip of a flat pry bar in-between two of the louvers at the top of the door. Gently pull down the pry bar, slightly bending the louver if needed until the louver ends slip out from the channel & remove the louver from the door. In the same way, again insert the tip of the pry bar into another louver. Pry it up, as well as remove it.
- Drill into the top louver if in case louvers will not come out. Now insert the blade of the jigsaw in the space which is opened up by the missing louver and cut through the center of the louvers. Pull out all of the ends.
- Measure the length as well as the width of the opening and subtract the 3/16 inch from both measurements. Now cut out a piece of the 1/4-inch hardwood plywood to measurement.
- Cut 2 pieces of the 3/4-inch by 3/4-inch from hardwood for the longest sides of the panel and nail them to the sides of the panel. Nail into the 1/4-inch plywood to the 3/4-inch hardwood. Now measure the distance in-between the 2 longer pieces and cut 2 3/4-inch pieces for each side. Nail them on a frame around the panel.
- Cut out a piece of the upholstery fabric but 3/4 inch bigger on all four sides. Place the panel face down on the upholstery fabric.
- Pull up the sides of the fabric tight and stick the fabric on the sides from four sides. The sides of the frame will be completely covered once it is installed. Insert the panel in the opening of the door from the back.
- Nail the frame with the door opening but from the back. Use the pin nailer having 1 1/4-inch pin nails. Keep the pin nailer at a 15-degree angle. Nail 4 pin nails but evenly spaced on each side of the 3/4-inch frame.
