Comcast came this afternoon (hallelujah). While a week and a half without internet was horrible, I must admit that there were some very nice aspects of not being “connected” all the time.
On Saturday I drove up to Philadelphia to meet up with a client for some shopping. We had great luck at a tiny little flea market called the Golden Nugget in Bucks County. Later we stopped by Stable Tables to place an order for a custom farm house style dining table made from reclaimed barn wood. (so excited about this!)
At one point in the trip we swung into a little antique shop in Flourtown, PA. There was a completely stunning white trellis folding screen that jumped out at both me and my client. Unfortunately it wasn’t for sale, but since then the idea of using a folding screen won’t seem to get out of my mind!
Here are a few inspiration images that I’ve had saved forever (and, as always, I love getting help from readers with the image credits for the many unknown sources).
I really love the dimension a folding screen brings to a space…
There are lots of beautiful options out there, if any of you are in the market.
I love Ballard’s ($349) upholstered divider. I wish it had more panels and wasn’t so pricey. The nailhead detail makes me so happy though…
Craigslist never lets me down. This $100 screen on Phili’s CL would look great with some new fabric and a coat of glossy paint…
And some paint on this eBay screen ($128, includes shipping) would make all the difference. Love the little quatrefoil design!
This screen ($320 on eBay) looks like it came straight from Pieces.
And, of course, there’s always the DIY route! This Old House has instructions (complete with a video) for making your own folding screen posted here.
