Project: Pretty room divider
Whether you’re looking for a little extra privacy, or you want to create a whole room-within-a-room, setting up a couple of bi-fold doors is a great place to start. Covering the panels in paper will make them blend into their surroundings and prevent them from looking like someone dropped a cubicle in your living room.
Wallpaper (1 to 2 rolls, depending on the size and number of bifold doors)
Metal ruler or carpenter
Spray paint (optional)
Wallpaper paste and brush
1 Measure the doors and cut your paper to size using a utility knife and metal ruler or carpenter square as your guide, leaving a 2" allowance on the top and bottom.
2 If you would like the sides of the dividers to match the paper, spray paint the edges of the doors in a complementary colour and let them dry completely.
3 Apply paste and book your wallpaper.
4 Carefully place your wallpaper on the first room divider door.
5 Smooth down the paper with a brush and remove any air bubbles with a plastic float.
6 Trim off the excess paper at the top and bottom using a utility knife.
7 Repeat for the other door, matching up the pattern.
If you're creating a wider room divider using multiple bi-fold doors, attach them together using the provided hinge.
