I often work in my garage on crafts and upcycling kinds of projects. Unfortunately I don't always want my neighbors to be looking at me or seeing my mess. The solution I came across is a privacy screen made out of standard fence boards. I used 4 or 5 boards held together by cross bracing with 2x4 or other wood, and standard L- shaped book shelf brackets on each side to allow it to stand on its own.
This size is light enough for me to move on my own and short enough to be left in place so I still have adequate ventilation in my garage workshop. In this photo you can see the salvaged room divider screen I initially found for the same purpose.

You can use this screen for privacy or just for daily inspiration. It does take some time because of its size, but well worth the time invested. If you are artistic, make your own canvas frames and hinge them together.
If you need to section off part of a room but can't find a suitable screen, buy a clothes rail and add curtains. You can even use tab top ones to minimise labour.
