curtains have to go

ok I am laying here in bed, DH is snoring and I can't sleep because I am looking at this bedroom with these curtains that go around the walls and it is like I have seen this fabric before and then I realize this fabric looks like the same as what was lining my grandmothers casket .. I can't have these things and feel like I am in a huge casket !!! So has anyone just got rid of these casket liners and gone with traditional like curtains and just put the over the windows and not the whole walls ???? If anyone has gone with reg like curtains how do you hang them ? Wondering why AS has the casket curtians

You could switch from the more formal pinch-pleated curtains to panel curtains that are seen in some of the other AS models, and you could most likely modify the tracks your curtains travel on so that the curtains just cover the windows, not the whole wall. Our 06 Bambi SE has panel curtains on the pano window that are flat when they are closed...and travel in tracks above & below the windows...

Casket curtains?

Hi, I never thought of it that way, but now that you mentioned it, that is what they look like. We have the small windows with the small curtains, but they needed a little help. So my wife dressed them up a bit. Our living room has the French theme and our bedroom has black out double curtains that match our bed spread.

Here are a few threads with curtain info:

Or if you go to the photo section of the forums, you can search for either drapes or curtains and get pics of different types for reference.

http://www.airforums.com/photos/brow...searchid=12579 (curtains)

Post photos of your final choice when done. Would love to see your pick.

I am never going to be able to look at those ddrapes again!LOL! In our 65 I made my own curtains and wired the rods where needed. Some of the windows would hold the tension type rods.

old?

If they aren't too old and will hold up to water, then you might consider dye. I think Juel dyed the curtains on her Airstream. This would save the cost of new fabric and different tracks or hangers. Or you might try some decorations pinned or sewn to them. I have hand made butterflies (rubberstamped, colored, sparkled and blinged up) on the endcaps in our Excella. My friend Dieterdog puts pretty scarves over hers. Necessity is the mother of invention! Have fun with it!

Victoria - You are too funny! There are several people on the forums that do curtains for rv's professionaly. Do a search and you should find them. I have seen blinds put in by Blue Pearl that looked very good.

Curtains in Tradewind 72

Though we followed the original curtain tracks we had JP drapes sew ours from fabric that our decorator had found. It was a bit pricey (the fabric) but looks great. We also picked out fabric for the room divider curtain and made that ourselves. I think the plain white does look casket esque.

Hi, just leave as is, life is short? Just bury me in my Airstream/casket since I already own it. Would doing this be considered GREEN or SILVER?

Thanks for all the ideas ! Life is short like way short and really do not have time to mess it much.. we will be here 1 more month and in that month Santa will make the AS not look like a casket so it will get a very quick redo think will go with non pleats. I like the scarves will take pics when we get the windows done and let you know...

Robert it would be considered Greener

You can often find different style carriers that will fit an existing track, making it a less expensive transition to from one style of curtain to another. Styles range from sew on tabs to hook & loop pairings to snap tape & snap carrier combos.
