Country Cupboard To transform this bookcase into a cupboard, add a pair of pretty shutters with a touch of country character. We ordered these cut-to-fit shutters from www.diyshutters.com. Or you can search your local home center. After sanding, priming, and painting the pieces, hang the shutters on the bookcase with cabinetry hinges. Top it off with a forge-iron shutter bolt to secure the doors closed.
