    DIY bug net

    I'm quite proud of my new DIY bug net. The materials are two sheer curtains from Walmart for a total of $10. I wish the idea was mine, but it isn't so I am attaching the YouTube video to give credit where credit is due.

    Cool. What's the weight and how do you enter/exit?

    Oh, and don't judge the suspension set up. It is temporary until my Amsteel comes tomorrow.

    I've made a bunch of those. One great thing about them is that the fabric comes in colors, so you're not stuck with dark ones. Light tan works very well to keep the summer heat down. My grand daughter's is white to go with her pink and white hammock made from a WMT shower curtain (poly fabric).
    Price is certainly right.

    For those curious the design originated on the forums here. The only addition the guy from Youtube made was the use of the WalMart curtains as a source for the fabric.
