Divide and conquer ...

When not just any room divider will do, it's time to get creative!  Old doors and windows are great choices, as are more unexpected elements.

It's all about cottage charm when using weathered door panels to divide a space from floor to ceiling. A scruffy veneer is perfect for shabby chic or rustic decor.


With a little recycling magic, used plastic bags can be cut into strips and tied along fishing line to make an artful, luxe-look screen as in the photos above via WallHome.

I like the way rustic wire lattice framed in wood gives visual separation without closing off the space entirely.  The same can be accomplished with a wooden dowel and rope.


Taking a few brilliant, DIY steps with rope can create screened work spaces, too.  Images above via Remodelista.

A large framed white board defines sleeping and sitting areas in the image (above left). To the right, a barn wood wall was constructed to divide spaces for dining and dozing.

Love, love the slat wall construction used to add privacy to the bed (above and below).

There are countless ways to divide public and private areas, and do so beautifully with minimum investment.  It just takes a little ingenuity to divide and conquer.
