DIY IKEA Room Divider

We’ve looked at some designs from IKEA Hackers in the past, but we think this room divider is particularly useful and elegant. The 22 year old builder said he could only afford to buy a studio with his girlfriend. In order to create more rooms, he hacked a set of PAX sliding doors to fashion a new bedroom.

He mounted the frosted glass and aluminum doors ($300) to a custom wood frame. He finished off and painted the drywall to make it look like an integral part of the space.

This design is a bit more involved than some we’ve seen, and there’s not a ton of instruction, but if you’re handy, we suspect this wouldn’t be too tough to pull off. Materials would probably cost $500-600 including the doors. If you’re not handy, we’d guess a contractor would do this for $1-2K, depending on your area. While we question whether this guy’s apartment is a studio (who has a dining room in a studio?), $1500-2500 for an extra room is a great deal.
