Build a panel door using a double layer of 6mm SupaWood and add moulding for cottage style. Mount curtain line at the top and bottom of the open panel section and mount rod pocket curtains (curtains with a pocket at the top and bottom that slides onto the curtain line). To add detail to the open panels use 10mm dowels fitted inside the opening and into a centre support.
