Two room changing projects with timber

Turn standard lengths of milled timber into one of these spectacular projects.

Bunnings magazine, July 2019

Milled to accurate, standard measurements, they are easy to work with and don’t require much finishing. These two projects use simple timber lengths to great effect: combined with dowel for a handy rack for the hallway and using different widths for a graphic dividing screen for an open-plan space.

Idea 1: Coat rack

Not just a handy rack for your hallway, this coat rack (shown above) can make like a feature piece when you and your guest enter your home.

Idea 2: Room divider

Unassuming at first glance, dressed timber battens can be the basis for room-changing projects. Try this dividing screen if you have an open-plan space.

Health & Safety

Please make sure you use all equipment appropriately and safely when following the advice in these D.I.Y. videos.

Grave health hazards are linked to asbestos, which may be in homes built up to 1990. Health hazards may result from exposure to lead-based paints in older materials and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page. You can also use a simple test kit from Bunnings to indicate the presence of lead-based paint.
