Step-by-Step Instructions:

Attach the Shutter Door

Attach two hinges, spaced equidistantly apart, on the edge of the shutter. Position the shutter centered from in the opening from top to bottom, with a spacer (a paint stirrer works nicely) between the shutter and the front of the assembly. Attach the hinges to the front stile.

Attach a door pull at the desired position on the shutter.

As an option, you can attach a magnetic catch to the shutter and inside of the bath pantry assembly or a latch on the outside of the shutter and bath pantry assembly to keep the door closed.
