So this used to be our curtain-type thing in our old house. Chris installed a lamp in the bar area because we were all complaining that it was too damn dark to see our food when we ate.
We decided that the beaded curtains might work well as a lamp.
Today (Sunday of the second weekend) was the first chance that I had to check it out. It required some moderation – like each strand needed to be cut in half. I felt a bit like the kids I had in my beady recycling workshops for National Science Week (last week – yes – that on top of moving) when I picked it up to hang it and half the beads fell off – had not ended off a couple of strands.
It looks quite effective though.
