    How long is the space you're trying to fill with a drape? Could you find a cheapish room divider?

    I bet someone on Freecycle will have a folding screen you can get free of charge. Or you could check thrift shops.

    My daughter has one of those lightweight Indian tapestries as a room divider. She used three thumbtacks to hang it.

    I don't think most landlords would object to that.

    I suspect you are taking the idea of never doing anything but sleeping (and well maybe) in the bedroom a little too far. I know people say that but I've never taken it entirely literally (I read in my bedroom, talk on the phone in it as well, relax in it when I just want to stare at the walls). I don't think it's literally true. Of course if you stay up way past bedtime reading or watching movies or internet or (for most people it's the smart phone) then it's a bad habit I guess. If hanging stuff was to block light well that really disturbs sleep.

    You could look into a room divider like this if it's kind of just about having two separate areas, they seem to come in all types of styles, sheer like this, solid etc.. I've used it around the bed (in one studio apt I lived in) but to block some of the light:

    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    I was going to say "ixnay" on the tent idea but then it occurred to me that it would be a great way to very quickly filter out women who were not excellent candidates for a relationship. But it doesn't sound very comfortable to me anyway and I suspect that you would end up sharing the tent with Harlan if he couldn't see you in the room from the other futon ('course, this could happen anyway).

    But if the "lounging" futon were left as a couch/sofa and the "sleeping" futon were left opened up as a bed, who would be the wiser? It wouldn't be much different from having a bedroom alcove or such in an efficiency apartment.

    Do you have access to pallets? Everyones building with free pallets these days. Then you can add it to your dating resume "can build anything out of a pallet".https://www.google.com/search?biw=19...30.ZbDsB3bdym4
