I love quick and easy repurposing projects! I also love shutter and/or bifold doors. This particular project is 1/2 of a bifold door. I have made other shutter magazine holders by removing every other slat. Generally I would put the claw end of a hammer in the middle and do a quick snap, then remove the slat from each side.
But thanks to my Dremel Multi-Max I found a much easier way to remove the slats. I’ve never had a tool before that does flush cuts!
Since I had never used one, it did take me a few tries to get it flush.
The Multi-Max is an awesome tool! There are many accessories available for it.
You can see here that one of the slats came out. I think that I removed it before I realized that I should try the Dremel Multi-Max. I just stuck it back in the hole and then cut it off flush.
Look at all the new paint stirrers I have now!
If you don’t have a Dremmel, you can use a hammer to “snap” out every other slat, then fill the holes with putty or spackling.
I switched the blade out and put the sander on the Multi-Max, to smooth out the rough places.
Then I spray painted it with a pretty green paint.
To finish it off, I applied a flourish that I cut with my Silhouette SD.
Yep, it sold at Glendale!

Dremel was kind enough to send me the Multi-Max, but as always my opinions are my own.
