Today, more a specific project than a site. How cool is this and how bad do you want one?

Yes, it’s a door curtain made out of old slides!


And check out the table lamp in the same post as well.

It does take me back to my university days when I seemed to know a large number of people who made their own chain mail, using a roll of wire, a drill to twist it into a coil, hours and hours with first a wire snip to separate the rings from the coil then hours and hours more with a pair of pliers, attaching them together to create a whole cloth. I’m guessing you can get strong jump rings to do the same thing if you don’t have chain mail links hanging around the house!

Happy Mother’s day! (in the UK – US moms will have to wait a bit longer. Lucky me, I can usually wrangle both)

How cool would that look… and when you are bored you can stand there and look at yourself when you were 8 and had bangs cut straight across by your Mum…. LOL
