Talking I finally finished the dinette of my 69

We installed the drapes and cushions this weekend.
Let my know what you think...

Wow! That looks fantastic. I love the drapery fabric. What is it that looks so shiny with a reflection in it above the window?

I removed the aging yellow vinyl wall covering and polished it. No easy task.

It might not have been easy, but it sure looks like the effort was worthwhile!

If you get a few minutes, tell us how you removed that old vinyl. It all looks great! Enjoy.

Looks awesome! Job well done ~

Just curious, where do you store the table top cushions when it's made up as a dinette?

Beautiful job, if you have any drawings of what you did, we would much appreciate it. Our dinette folds into 2 useless twins, would love to see how you made yours convert to a full.

Beleive it or not its a sheet set from ikea. $19.

Here is a link:

http://www.ikea.com/webapp/wcs/store...58*15824*15836

I used the old drapes for a template. Bought drape blackout backing at a fablic store and paid a lady $125.

Good Luck!
