Great Looking Curtains Made From Film Slides

We used to get slides developed all the time, when we were working mostly with film cameras. It's rarer nowadays and some people are left over with heaps of slides that they don't need anymore. What can you do with them? For one thing, you can make these great-looking curtains!

Slides were used a lot in the past, before the advent of LCD projectors, digital cameras, and Powerpoint. The colors were better and you could project the slides through a projector. We're sure that a lot of few have a bunch of slides hidden away in storage. Some might be decades old, others might be ones that you developed yourself.

Needless to say that slides aren't used that much anymore. There are still people who have them developed. Well we spotted a great way to make use of slides. Flickr user Yarnzombie created his Kodachrome Curtain from slides and we have to say that they look gorgeous. So if you have some slides, this is a fun project to make.

Here's the finished curtains I made out of Kodachrome slides! The slides date from the 50s and early 60s, and are all from a lot of slides I got in Kansas City last fall. The majority of slides on the right panel are of horses. Go figure. Travis drilled 8 holes in the slides using a Dremel tool in a Dremel drill press thingy, and I connected them all using aluminum chainmail rings.
