Hi everyone,

 

I wondered if I can pick your brains! Wanting to use picket fences as internal room dividers, but cannot seem to find any that are rustic wood looking. If people have this type of thing, where did you get it from please?

 

Thanks,

 

Victoria

Would they be fixed permanently? If so, I'd go to your local fencing supplier and tell them what you want. If you want natural wood fencing, you'd have to make sure it was planed and smooth to avoid splinters.

Amazon. Sorry not sure how to do the link. Search freestanding picket fence. May not be sturdy enough but comes in different heights.

Thanks all for your replies. I feel quite torn on free-standing vs. permanant. Obviously free-standing has the advantage that it's movable and less permanant, however does anyone have any thoughts on the negatives of the feet element of free-standing? I am concerned that they may cause a trip hazard, and how sturdy are they when children bash into them, or for example when a baby pulls himself/herself up on one of them?

 

I never knew picket fencing could cause me such a headache!!!!!!!!!!

We looked at this once and rejected it for the same reasons. Most room dividers seem to have quite 'trippy' base stands when we were investigating although this was a while ago so maybe there are more choices now.

Not picket fencing, but Wesco do natural wood room dividers - they call them barrier kits.

We use Community Playthings Roomscape panels which are really versatile as you can attach them to Community Playthings furniture, walls or each other. They aren't cheap but they're beautiful and last forever.

Going back to what someone added about trip hazards - we do have a Wesco 'fence' which is two panels hinged in the middle. We've had it years since before we got into community Playthings.

I did use to worry about the feet being a trip hazard but actually they never were
