My mother has always been a big fan of folding screens, and I’m beginning to understand their genius. They’re inexpensive (or they can be), practical, easy to store when not in use, and hide a multitude of sins (i.e. clutter). It seems that they’re popular items, too. I’ve seen several of them at occasional sales lately. I actually bought one, which I’m planning to repaint (stay tuned for that project!).
Considering different “looks” for my screen, I thought others of you might be in the same boat – possessed of a folding screen but unable to decide if or how to “make it your own.”
Pinterest and design blogs are great resources, as are design/décor magazines, but I’m going to help you cheat with a few of the best that I’ve come across:

Most of the above screens can be DIY – if you have a decent imagination and some painting/staple gun skills ~
