Gallery: DIY: Vibrant Curtains Upcycled from Old Film Slides


Like the 35mm camera, film slides have gone to the wayside in favor of digital images and PowerPoint. So what is one to do with that box of slides collecting dust up in the attic? Turn them into a curtain! In a beautiful and clever design, one gal has gathered up these vibrant treasures and turned them into a stunning, colorful window curtain full of memories. For this simple DIY project all you need is a small drill and a pile of aluminum chain-mail rings, and violà! Say goodbye to lackluster mini blinds!

    I love this idea. I recently came across hundreds of old vacation slides from all over the US, can\’t wait to make my own curtain!

    This is truly a unique look! I’m a geologist – and I have a boatload of old field slides… I’ll definitely consider this. Thanks!
