Create Your Own Room Divider

Paint your Own Room Divider

So I came across something really interesting the other day that I thought I would share with all of you artists who might be out there. You could do this for your own room or else create it as a present for someone else. Maybe you could even do one and use it as a demo for creating further commissions.

Anyway, what I found was a room divider that is created using primed canvas, so that you can paint your own design on it. You could create a custom room divider with anything you like on. From an abstract work to a local or an imaginary scene, all you need here is your imagination.

If you start with a blank room divider and then paint it yourself this would also turn out much less expensive than buying a custom room divider.

Anyway, so here is what you get - you can choose from either a 3, 4, 5 or 6 panel screen. Both sides are covered in primed white art canvas and stretched over kiln dried spruce.

So you can use it as a screen or you can actually mount it on the wall as an artwork, as it also comes with wall fixings. This is actually a cheap way to get a really big painting done - and the painting is foldable and easier to transport.

There are also choices of heights available - 4 ft, 6 ft or 7 ft tall.

So use your imagination to create either a unique folding room divider, or a unique piece of art.

Choose from 3, 4 or 5 panels and heights of 4ft, 6ft or 7ft. Then paint your own masterpiece and use it as either a room divider or a hanging piece of art.

Hi Emma, as long as the divider does not have some kind of sealant on it (and even then it might still be OK) you can use gesso to paint over it - it might take a couple of coats to get rid of the union jack but after that you can paint over the gesso with acrylic paint. Good luck and great idea for recycling!
