Tinware window shades

I have no photo to blog, so I am picking this Country Living tear sheet out of the runcible bin. When the Summer sun blazes through the bedroom transom, I usually use baskets to filter the light, but a piece of tinware would be much better. I'm going to try pricking black paper with a pin. A roller shade of dark waxed linen would be nice for the porch door, with little grommets set into patterns like constellations.

I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with here - I love - what's it called - forget - pierced work? I've used gutter flashing with designs thusly for the risers on stairs and backdrops on counters and backs of cupboards. Hmmm - now that I am reminded of these..... Thank you!
What happened to those 'washed' socks? The photo of them on your son had me grinning and commiserating both at the same time.
