A Little Upgrade

My first (finished) upgrade in our travel trailer were my daughters curtains. I’ll be sewing up new curtains for the whole trailer but I started with my daughters curtains because those windows don’t have blinds like the rest of the windows do and the curtains HAD to go. So I looked through my fabrics, seeing what I had enough of, put them in front of my oldest daughter and, well, she wasn’t too impressed. None were bright enough, nor to her tastes. Then I had that wonderful “lightbulb” moment. I remembered the lovely sheet I found not so long ago at a local thrift store. Yes, a sheet from a thrift store, lol. What can I say? I like being thrifty. And it really was a pretty sheet, now it’s two pretty curtains. Hehe.

So here are the boring, sun bleached before curtains….


And the new pretty curtains that my girls LOVE….

I’m quite pleased with how they turned out, though I am contemplating whether our not I want to adjust the length of the bottom curtain.

Want to know a little secret? Well, it’s no secret now, lol. Until I go buy curtain rods, I used hooks and zip ties. Ta Da! I’m surprisingly pleased actually, it works really well and you really can’t tell. Zip ties, to me, are just as versatile as the oh so wonderful duct tape. They are definitely worth having around.

Author: The Rutherford Adventures

Hi! I'm Amanda, a wife, caregiver to my Parkie hubby, homeschooling mom of three and recently have become a soap making enthusiast. My hubby and I have had many an adventure over the years, our most recent being homesteaders in a small rural area of Alabama. We currently have chickens, a dairy goat we've lovingly named Georgia, three young Hereford pigs, a livestock guardian named Snow whom our children adore and two spoiled cats named Felix and Emma. Soon, we plan on embarking on our biggest adventure to date, an extended cross country trip around the United States. Our longest trip was a two week trip to New York and Canada and I thought that was long! So, thank you in advance for visiting my blog, my first by the way! I hope I have something to offer to my readers. Happy reading!
