Make Decorative Room Dividers

I have a friend who lives in a studio apartment and would like to section off a bedroom area. Do you have any ideas on how to make a room divider? --iVillager booka62

Question:

I've made room dividers and screens several times on my show. The most recent was for my son’s loft - which is very open, just like you are describing. I used two sets of folding shutter closet doors (4 panels all together). Since each set of panels are already hinged together, all you need to do is hinge together the two sets. I added small shelves at various heights (supported by small wood brackets) to each panel and then stained the panels and shelves with a country blue wood stain. It really did the job - it gave the privacy for the bedroom area and also a display area for pictures.
