I’ve had a chance to make a few changes to our Airstream, since it’s taking a break from the road, just like we are. The plain off-white stock curtains are perfectly good, and tailor made to fit the windows. There are little tabs attached to run in a track, both top and bottom. I didn’t really want to invest the time it would take to design and make entirely new curtains. I liked the fact that they blocked the light very well, except at the edges.
So, I put on my thinking cap, and came up with approach that turned out to successful. I just put a new front on the existing curtains. I did have to remove and reattach the Velcro fasteners to bring the sections together. But, I did not have to mess with the slider tabs at all.
The picture above shows the curtains at the bedroom end of the trailer. I stayed with a neutral color because I use various colorful quilts on the bed. At the opposite end of the trailer, surrounding our eating area, I came up with a more colorful fabric, to cheer up the space. Luckily, since I’m not heading out shopping for fabric now, I had these fabrics in good amounts to do the job.
I tested out my ability to make a video as a little tutorial about the construction and finishing of the curtains. Just dabbling with editing, so not ready for Cannes yet! But it’s fun learning! And we are very happy with our curtain makeover!
