Stylishly divide a space in just a few short steps using vintage license plates.Brian Patrick Flynn, Decor Demon
Use tape measure to determine proper width and height for space needing division. Jot down dimensions.
Spread license plates out on a long flat surface. Sort and arrange by color.
Lay chain out on long, flat surface, keeping in mind each strand of license plates requires two symmetrical strands of chain. Use tape measure to determine where to cut chain in reference to height of space. Cut chain to size with chain cutter.
With chain spread out on flat surface, temporarily place license plates on top of chain, leaving an even amount of space between each plate. Once layout is determined, flip each strand upside down, insert bolt or screw through front of pre-drilled hole in plate, and fasten to back with nuts using wrench and screwdriver.
Measure width of each strand. Referring to strand measurements, mark ceiling with pencil. Screw two hook eyes per strand directly into ceiling. Insert S-hook into top link of chain in strand and attach to eye hook in ceiling.
