My Temporary Shoji Wall
So here is the story – I had an extra room that was too small for a couch and table, but too big to be a closet or office. So I decided to put an Ikea futon in it and make it a secondary bed room.
However, the room only had 3 walls, therefore lacking some privacy. I decided to build a Japanese Shoji wall. The wall is connected to a shelf at the top, thus creating a wall that offers privacy but created no structural modifications to the room itself other the attachment of the shelf to the wall.
The solution allows light to still flow through the apartment and gives a little depth and warmth to the space. If the wall gets damaged or dirty you just replace the Shoji Paper like normal Shoji.
Budget was around $180 and took about 20 working hours to complete (creation and install).
My dad was kind enough to help me pull it off and here are the results!
