cheryl’s cozy room divider

one of the things i love about ikea is its flexibility. in my apartment, some of my furniture and spaces has to do double (or triple) duty.

cheryl faced a similar predicament. her living room has multiple personalities as a sofa and telly lounge, dining space and also work area. she also has 2 computers and wanted a room divider to hide the storage shelf and at least 1 computer.

it’s a simple solution but i think she did the job beautifully.

“i used dignitet and deka and mounted it unto the ceiling. this is usually used for odd shaped windows, such as bay windows. i bought a lightweight fabric which was also on sale at ikea. cheap and cheerful divider, practical and space saving as well. perfect.”

am loving the colours – the white and brown hues. as yummy as marshmallows in hot choc.

    It would be helpful if people could show the installation process for the dignitet room divider and canopy bed ideas. For example, is it possible to do these without drilling holes in ceiling? Are there command strips or anything else that can be used. I don’t want to drill holes as I am a renter but would need to use dignitet due to the fact of the way it needs to be hung from ceiling. What types of fasteners are being used and purchased? Are these all requiring drilling? The site needs to show the basics of how these hacks are being done please!

    And the wall brakets are not included in the frigging bag. Dooes anyone knows the name of the other item to buy for the wall brakets?
