I recently moved my small company to a real office space.
With the development of economy, it is terrible enough not to buy furniture.
So to provide the furniture, I shop at the local used furniture store and get two desks and an executive desk for less than $200.
I also need two space dividers.
I 've been looking for used items on various Internet sites for a long time, but these things don't seem to trade much, and the new thing is that small units cost up to $300.
I need 2 panels 5 feet by 5.
It will be expensive.
This made me think about these things.
PVC tubing seems to be a good material for making frames.
It is possible to create its own panel with some beautiful canvas.
What did I find?
At the local hardware store, I found what I needed for an incredible price!
The total cost per group for this project is $25!
On top of that, it's an easy thing to make and all the parts are easy to find.
This is the blueprint for this project.
There are two views of the whole thing, top down and front view at the bottom.
Please note that they will not expand in any way, they just come to illustrate the idea.
Saw two PVC pipes into four 5F long ones.
Take one of them and put two 5 (
Do not discard, you will use these).
Slide the cross over the current 10 "shorter sections and place the 5" sections at both ends.
Measure how much the base is now longer than 5F (
This is 1/4 "for me ").
Shorten the length of the base to 5F (for me 3 1/4").
Slide the cross and 5 "blocks back and check the length is now 5F.
We will slide into 4 tubes and keep the frame upright.
As you can see in the photo, my base has different lengths.
The pipe on the side of the base will be at the door and I have cut it into 5 pieces.
The pipes on the side of the wall are on the second and 1/2 floors, cutout. The cut-
Out is used to place a table at the top of the pipe to bring some real stability to the room partition.
Be creative and adjust these to your needs.
You need to stick the base together to make sure it doesn't twist.
Just need to stick 2 pieces at both ends, those are 5 "tubes that connect the cross to the corner.
Once these are locked, the frame will remain upright, but you can still take things apart if needed.
Make sure that when you glue, the corner blocks point straight up!
Update: The Partition seems to work fine and very stable and won't make it fall even if a baby pulls it, however, I will stick the base together for extra stability.
Drill out 3/32 holes on the corners and screw in the hook. See photo.
Put the frame together so you can measure the canvas.
Put a Gromet in a corner of the canvas.
Hook it to the frame and measure where the second grommet should be placed so that the canvas can be stretched tightly in the frame.
Place grommet in the right place.
Repeat this in other corners.
I also placed hooks in the middle to prevent the canvas from drooping there.
You can choose if you want to do the same.
By using the canvas for panels, your project will have a much smaller impact on the environment than commercial panels that use a lot of materials like foam plastic and particle boards.
Now that this is done, take the pipe apart and paint it (
Or keep them as they are).
I painted them black.
