Capture silhouettes from the garden for a decorate-it-yourself wooden screen. This tri-paneled model features framed leaf outlines, which can be rotated to celebrate the seasons. Both pretty and practical, screens go anywhere in a home, creating instant botanical backdrops or delineating a room-within-a-room, such as a dressing area.
