Decorating & Furniture/Creating two room functions in one room!


I am a newlywed and my step-daughter comes to stay with us every other weekend. The problem is we only have a two bedroom home and I really need my office.
So I am wondering if it is possible to create a kids room/office in one so that she has a space to call her own when she is here and I can keep my office essentials.
I am willing to give up my enormous desk and other furnitures in here, I just need to keep my PC and a few other small things. Any ideas to help me?

Dear Sarah Becker,
   I would suggest purchasing a shoji screen or a free standing rod with curtains. I would suggest placing your office space closer to the entry so you dont have to walk through her space. Hope this helps.
