In addition, paper screens (readily available at Home Depot) are not only aesthetically pleasing but allow endless possibilities for creativity. Anything you can do on paper you can do on these blinds! For example, lights can be placed inside the box to create artistic silhouettes or projections. Transparencies can also be used in place of paper screens for another level of customization.
Before starting construction, Solidworks models were created to set dimensions and visualize assembly.
