Broken Shutter Room Divider

I bought an old set of bifold closet doors with broken louvres on the top.  After removing the broken louvres, I painted and "antiqued" the doors.  Then I cut panels to insert in the tops.  I painted one side with chalkboard paint and covered the other side with a beautiful upholstery fabric and used a stained 1/4 round trim to hold the upper panels in place.
