San Francisco based designer/upcycler Scott Sherwood has come up with a great idea by making a fantastic upcycled curtain with more than a thousand vintage 35mm film slides. "All the 35mm slides are original photographic images from the the past 50+ years from various amateur photographers around the world and the subject matters are as diverse as the planet itself," Sherwood writes.
It took four months, and 1,152 slide mounts and almost 7,000 silver tone rings for Sherwood to create the curtains. "Every slide is housed with a new hard plastic white mount that attractively displays each image and compliments any rooms decor." The curtains are "very durable yet flexible like chain-mail" and "easily opened and closed."
Sherwood was also careful to segregate slides by dominate color so as to produce consistent patterns. Pink is at the top, followed by red, orange, yellow, green, blue and finally purple at the bottom.
"By night the slides are visible from outside when the interior lights are illuminated acting as a privacy window for you," he says.
