Description: My husband and I own a vintage destination blind from Brisbane Australia which is over 3m in length. I had nowhere that high to hang it in my house but I didn’t want to cut it up. My husband purchased two Ikea Tupplur blinds and used the mechanisms from them (top and bottom) so that we could display the tram scroll in one piece. The ball chain was left attached so that we can ‘scroll’ through the destinations and change the display if we want to. This was a good solution because it meant that we get to display the destination blind and preserve its original length, rolled up.
