Yesterday the sun was very hot and heating up my cabin to unbearable from heat from the NW windows. I had two windshield sun reflectors from Dollar Tree I was going to use for my cars but in a bit of desperation to relieve the heat situation in cabin I used them to cover one of my windows. Amazing difference. These also already have the foam backing on them. A little more time pondering how to make them look more like window coverings for a house to improve their appearance is what needs done now. Maybe a lace sheer or lace table cloth to cover them? Something cheap and attractive. Will also reverse the car shades for the cold winter months to keep heat inside. Great Instructable! It's been on here for years and still getting comments!
Thank you for the reply and update Crafsman (and your condolences). This is good to know how yours are holding up in the weather and your added suggestions. I haven't tried it yet as I haven't found any smooth enough rocks. I live near a river and find perfect sizes but can't find any with perfectly smooth surface. Do you have any suggestions where I can get some large ones (very minimum 12" x 12")?
Thanks TheCraftsMan. I really like your indestructible and am anxious to give it a try. The memorial places charge an arm and leg for a picture on a monument and I think with your idea putting a picture on a smooth stone would be very nice. It is for my teen daughter's grave. She really enjoyed doing crafty things like this so I know she would like it. I'll give it a try. And thanks for the encouragement! It is doable!
Thanks for the suggestions Tanzer26. And the tip on color vs b and w.
I would like to try something like this with a picture of a deceased loved one to place at their grave. How long should something like this hold up outside in the elements? I live in the upper midwest where we have four seasons.
