Can you give us an idea of the configuration of the room? For example, how large is the area that is curtained off right now? The size of a doorway, or the length of a whole wall?

Make a drawing of the room. Maybe in ms paint? So we can better visualize?

I’m thinking a sliding door mounted on a track might be your best bet.

There’s tons of inspiration on pinterest: http://pinterest.com/search/?q=sliding+door

Not sure if you have an Ikea near you, but they have a curtain system that slides on tracks called Kvartal.  That might work for you to create a door, but probably won’t help with the noise.

Is the only entry/exit of the dining room into the living room?  or is there a door that goes from the dining to kitchen?  If there’s another entry/exit, I’d probably try to cover up the wide entry into the living room with a really large entertainment center or row of bookcases or armoire… some piece of furniture that would be big enough to cover the entry.

Or, if that is the only entrance to the room, maybe you can get a large armoire to cover *most* of the entrance, as well as give you some storage. And then maybe you could use the sliding door to cover the rest of the entrance, and give you more privacy?

P.S. Thanks for the diagram. 🙂 I think it looks pretty good!

I don’t think there’s much you can do about the sound unless you have someone install an actual wall. There are pocket doors you can buy at home depot that would give more privacy than just a curtain.
