When you need a wall and can not have one put in, you get a little creative.
So, I have this room that had a wall with a fireplace in the center. It created a round-a-bout. We could walk circles all day long. But I had a problem. I needed two separate rooms. I especially needed a wall. We are renting this house, so doing demolition and an add on was not in the cards.... and is generally pricy. I wanted something light weight, but substantial. Then it hit me. I could the use the concept of pipe and drape. PVC pipe and cheep tab curtains I already had.

|other side of wall (which is now my craft room)|
We made the panels 8 feet high and put them in 3 sections.
To attached the center sections together, "T" connecters were just the thing.
For stability and making it a "wall", "u" brackets were screwed into the drywall.
This project is not time consuming and is very inexpensive. Power tools are optional (but I like to use mine any chance I get!). Now I can work on my projects without the rest of the house seeing all of my glorious mess.
