The vintage screen made of circles shown here was part of an almost-wall divider that separated the library from the entrance hall on the first floor of this 1960s Chicago home.

Its construction could work as a DIY project, because this eye-catching room divider was simply made with craft hoops and oak strips, framed by planks.

The design itself could vary — for example, by using long wood strips to separate each tier rather than the staggered 4×4 hoops mounted on a plus/cross shape shown here. Just be sure the faux wall is strong and stable, and attached securely to keep it upright.

What really brings it all together is by painting or staining the entire structure with the same color. In the room shown, the screen’s wood tones blended beautifully with the parquet flooring, and contrasted with the off-white walls and window coverings.

The Roman shades at the windows were made of the same natural linen casement cloth that was used for shades and draperies throughout the home.

Through its filtered view, one library wall and its adjacent sitting area could be seen, with the living room glimpsed beyond.
