Freestanding Room Divider

It’s simple to create a boundary between living spaces with this stylish storage unit. Plus, the design will complement any décor.

This room divider can be used anyplace there’s a need to separate a space without adding a permanent wall. We used ours to screen an entryway from the main living area, as shown here. The open construction of this divider still lets plenty of light through, and the removable shelving allows the unit to be customized to suit any space or decorating desire. Don’t let the size of this room divider scare you off. We designed this project to go together very easily. And we even made it so the whole thing can be broken down and moved from one space to another. The bulk of this two-tone unit is made from maple plywood panels with solid-wood edging. This ensures a quick build while still giving the room divider a rock-solid foundation. But the thick, solid-wood face frames really set this project apart. They give the room divider its unique look while providing stiffness for the overall assembly.
