Decorative and versatile, screens hide untidy or ugly areas, provide privacy, and act as portable room dividers. And, they're yours to create in many different looks, textures, and styles: woven with bright ribbon; inlaid with French country gingham; appliquéd with flowers; or given a sumptuous leather effect.
All you need to know are the basics of making a simple frame screen or the solid panel version--templates are provided, but you can buy pre-made blanks--and easy ornamental techniques. A shell-covered driftwood screen emulates the wonderful weathered quality of beach material; the richly embellished music score screen has gold leaf, script, and flowing curves; and others use papier-mâché, verdigris, mosaics, faux marbling, and upholstering. These unusual pieces will complement any interior.
