This space-saving DIY kitchen divider was good for two reasons: it added a bright personal touch that every home needs, and it wouldn’t  make a large dent in your budget.

Simple frames were made of 1×2-inch pine stock, with hexagonal chicken wire/steel netting set into each one.

The frames and netting were then painted to match the dark colors of the patterned sheer white fabric (stretched across brass rods), which hid the kitchen storage and work counter.

The clear netting above let in the window light — and light from the ceiling globes — into this little breakfast nook.

Floral wallpaper in bold warm colors filled both rooms, including the ceilings. The dining area had red/orange with yellow flowers, while the kitchen featured yellow with a red floral pattern.
