Chain Curtain



Introduction: Chain Curtain

About: I'm a musician, crafter, dessert lover and proud grandma.

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.
