Scott Sherwood, aka sherwoodscot on Flickr, kindly shared this photo with Yahoo Homes' Flickr group. It's inspiration for a do-it-yourself project, although not for the faint of heart: According to the caption, these curtains took four months to make.

The curtains are made of more than a thousand vintage, one-of-a-kind 35mm film slides, each in its own white plastic mount, "meticulously sorted and put in order by color." The subjects of the slides -- which were shot by various amateurs over the past half-century or so -- "are as diverse as the planet itself," Sherwood writes.

The curtains are "very durable yet flexible like chain-mail" and "easily opened and closed."

At night, when the lights are on in the home, the slides are visible from outside, creating privacy.
