DIY Window Treatment from Photo Slides

This brilliant window treatment comes from a Pennsylvania friend, Deb Schell, who I first met on an epic hike along the Susquehanna River

Deb is a travel writer and photographer and when she moved into a new apartment she set about creating a space that truly reflected who she is. There is nothing like a blank canvas to unleash those home decor ideas.

And unleash she did and constructed the most unique window treatment I have ever seen. The curtain for her kitchen window is constructed from 225 of her grandfather’s photo slides, which I think is fantastic way to not only honor her grandfather but is so in keeping with her own photography skills. It required a fair deal of patience to make, but the end result is fantastic!

Check out her blog for full instructions on how she made it
