DIY Wall Divider Using Tension Post and Door Panel


Looking for advice on how to create a DIY wall divider using:

- IKEA PAX SEKKEN DOOR, Pair of sliding door frames; Tempered/safety glass, Glass enamel

- Tension Post
s that are Height adjustable from 82 5/8-129 7/8", which allows you to utilize the entire ceiling height.

- Mounting Fixtures

Does anyone have an idea of how I could affix the door panel to the tension posts -- one post on each side of the door? It would end up looking like this:

Those doors slide horizontally and the rods you listed are intended to be installed vertically right. Am I to assume that you dont want the doors to slide once they are installed?

Yes. You're spot on. The doors will be used as panels -- no sliding function -- just to separate the space and act as a room divider. Is this possible?

Its definitely possible. You are going to have to make sure that your tension rods are centered on a ceiling joist or you will have to install blocking between the joists (if you have access above this will be very easy) As far as a bracket is concerned I'm thinking something like a chain link fence post tension band.

You could drill a hole in the door and then use a galvanized bolt or maybe even a threaded hook to hang towels or a robe or whatever on the bedroom side of the door.
