I hope this will help some people

I just got done making curtains and new bed covers.Our camper was used by an older gentleman and it was in pretty good shape.The twin beds where never used but smelled bad.I strip the old cover off, all the foam in the camper including the couch.Took the foam to the car wash with some mean green and cleaned the dust out of them.(granted it did take seven days for it to fully dry).Went to walmart bought some fabric for ($50.00) and two twin size plastic zip up bed covers($30.00 )After put on the plastic cover i made to fabric for each bed.I sawed three sides leaving the bottom undone for easy removal so i could wash them with eazy.Money was a problem at this time Due to all the other project we have going on with the camper at this point and time........Plus i have two kids with Asthma& Allergy one being on shots.Its has to be as smell free & dust as possible.

My hubby say i could take anything and make something out of it.Weather he like it or not is a different story. But he like still having money in his pocket.......But i hope this might help someone on a budget like us....There are some pic on my profile of the curtains and couch not sure about the bedroom tho.The couch also has a plastic bed cover to along with two pillows i made.

Good job!!! There's nothing wrong with saving money. Plus you can use what you save do do more helpful projects or take a nice trip in your trailer.

Great job Angela! Your curtains and couch look so nice and fresh!

Great idea to take the foam to the car wash. This should really help with dust and with allergys.

Looks Good!
You did a nice job on the upholstery and the cutains came out great, too. This really brightens-up the inside of your Airstream and gives it a nice, "airey" appeal.

I wish I could have saved my foam. I went to 3 shops to get quotes to "rebuild" my two couches. All 3 quoted between $500-600 just for the foam. I was shocked but it had to be done.

Tip #2

Not sure about anyone else.But i have two pull down shades over the kitchen window and bath.Which is plain in my book.So i took a Peace of lace and a hot glue gun.And cut the lace to just to fit what i could see from the kitchen window,and folded it over as you go down the shade about five times and glued each fold to each side of the shade. Try to find one with ruffles so the can hang past the end of the shade for a nice look when standing at the sink and the shade is pulled up half way.It kind of looks like those high dollar lace curtains that go up and down on two strings....
