Hi all,

Brand new to the site & love it already! I found my way here trying to find ideas for something to do with an old 3-panel room divider frame dug out of my grandparent's garage recently. I saved it from my brother & boyfriend who wanted to chop it up for firewood!! I cleaned it up & it's real nice - not sure how old it is, but old enough. It's just the frame without anything in the panels. I will post some pictures of it later.... I wanted to see if anybody had ideas as to what I could put in the panels and how I could go about it? My brother suggested just using fabric and wood staples. Are there better ways to put things into these frames? I knit, thought it'd be cool to knit up panels for it (even though it'd take a zillion years - it would be cool!)  Any ideas folks have are totally welcomed Smiley thanks!

knit something with big needles/loose stitches
fabric
weave different textiles together
use willow branches either straight or woven
tulle with lights woven in
wood panels that are painted or with chalkboard paint or with mosaic tiles

I would measure a rod and cut it to size to fit in the frames. Two for each panel then, sew 3 large curtain to fit inside. Slide them onto the rods and then glue or fasten to rods to the frames. This will make a great room divider or maybe you could separate them and use them as LARGE wall art. I hope this helps!

I love the idea of knitting panels for it.  Please post this project if you end up doing that!

You could hang pictures in it.  Have kind of a floating frame thing going on...take a frame put in a pic then use fishing line to hang the frame in the middle of the frame if that makes sense lol.
