San Francisco shopkeepers can be so clever. We came across these "curtains" made of paper chains at Cielo on Fillmore Street. As soon as we spotted them, we had one of those "Why didn't I ever think of that?!" moments. They're a good reuse of magazines, plus they're super-easy to make. (Remember assembling chains with colored construction paper strips back in grade school?)
At Cielo, the paper chains are hung from a simple curtain wire. You can pick up a kit at Ikea for just $4.99 which means this is also a really inexpensive weekend project. We're busting out the paper cutter and mulling over locations for a paper-chain curtain in our own house.
