Sunlight Shades

It's summer. You're working in your cool architecture studio, and then suddenly: The reflection of sunlight from the floor is right into your eyes. So, what you're gonna do? The easiest way is to buy a curtain and place it in front of the video, but what if you wanna be more creative?! (Sway Link)

Step 1: Gathering the Pieces

I found some of the plywood trash left from paving the second floor of the office and started to make shades for the studio. I also used some hooks, cables and pulleys in order to make an adjustable shade protecting me from the sunlight glaze.

Step 2: Finding the Right Way

I used motorcycle brake joints to tie up the cables behind the plywood boards and then I placed some pulleys on top to control the cables.

Step 3: No Issues Anymore

I used the security fences of the window to adjust the shades degree using some hooks. And, no more bothering reflections anymore.
