Follow Up on Displaying an Original Trolley Scroll Intact

Remember when Catherine sought the advice of Apartment Therapy readers about how best to display a 4m long original trolley bus scroll? After your great advice, Catherine and her husband put their thinking caps on and came up with a great solution using a pair of Ikea TUPPLUR blinds. See the result after the jump...

We used Ikea TUPPLUR roller blinds attached to both the top and bottom of the blind so that we can 'scroll' through the destinations. This meant that we didn't have to cut the blind and it can be displayed in one piece - in fact we can even change the display if we want to. We hung it in our study where the roof is highest and we're both really pleased with the results!

I know that destination blinds/scrolls/signs etc are getting a bit of a bad rap on AT lately and have been likened to 'Keep Calm and Carry On' images because of their apparent popularity in home tours but regardless of that, this is an idea that can definitely be applied to other situations where something long has to be displayed preferably in one piece e.g. art works, fabric, banners etc.

Thanks for sharing your solution with us Catherine. Be sure to stop by Little Green Haus, where Catherine shares all about her home- including her step by step progress with the AT Spring Cure.
