Intro: Chain Curtain
My favorite feature of my house is the open concept, it feels so big and bright. But I wanted to divide the space between the living room and the family room, without blocking the view because I needed to watch my grandchildren while I'm cooking and they're playing.
This curtain works perfectly, it's a subtle way to divide the spaces and it's a pretty decor element. Buying something similar is expensive, I'm going to show you how with a low budget and few materials you can make one.
Step 1: Gather Your Materials
Tape measure or ruler
Cable staples round crown staples
Step 2: Paint
Paint the framing lumber white.
Depending on your paint it may need several coats.
Let it dry completely.
Step 3: Mark
With the help of the tape measure and pencil, make marks where you want to put the chain.
Mine are every inch.
Step 4: Staple
Put the staples where you draw the marks.
Step 5: Attach the Chain
Cut the chain the length you want the curtain to be.
Open the last link and attach it to a staple.
Repeat this step until all the staples have a chain.
Step 6: Enjoy!
Finally attach the lumber to the ceiling.
It looks really good, it´s perfect for that space.
