In our wanderings online – always on the lookout for room screens – we stumbled on this intriguing room screen with huge possibilities for improvising and tailoring to your space. Comprised of a series of hinged canvas-covered panels, you can use it as-is for a neutral, minimalist look OR paint or draw designs on it – even cover the panels with fabric or photographs of your own choosing. The screen is, literally, a blank canvas. It comes in a variety of heights from 4“, 6″, and  7”  , and your choice of 3, 4, 5, or 6 panels. A 6-foot six panel screen costs $179 plus shipping, which seems like a bargain; the hard labor done, all that’s left to do is decorate it: with paintings, color blocks, writing…the possibilities are endless.

  1. I, too, have a long love affair with screens–and looking for screens. I love this one and went to the site and drooled and drooled at the amazing variety they have. That was after I dreamed of what I would pain, stitch and maybe lace on the blank one.

  2. Great idea for painters.
    I wonder what a good painter could do with one of these.
    I wish I were able to paint so I could do something nice for my home.

  3. Sometimes I swap “skills” with a friend. If you really feel you can’t paint, maybe someone you know could do something you like. And you could repay them with whatever you do well, or they need.
