An outdoor shower is a must-have come Summer. Trevor shares a great way for you to make your outdoor shower look great and maintain a bit of privacy at the same time.

  • Whites Group’s Screen Up is a brilliant DIY project that you can get from Bunnings. With Screen Up, a privacy screen will take all of a day to put together.
  • Whites Group’s Screen Up can be used to create a wall-mounted or free-standing privacy screen.
  • The first thing you need to do is set out the dimensions and mark the positions of your posts.
  • Base plates are great for mounting onto existing solid surfaces like decking, paving, and concrete.
  • Anchor post footings can be used for grassed areas. Use quickset concrete to fix them into position.
  • Drill and secure the base plates with Dyna bolts. Screw-in your wall mount and then slide on your posts.
  • Add in the prepared timber slats. These are 19mm slats which slide between the spacers provided.
