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.

Ingenious! I wonder if those "furniture slider" discs would work?


Perhaps you could salvage some kid-size roller skates or blades and attach to each side? Hum.
