Mini Blinds - Privacy - A Solution

We love the mini blinds in our 2014 FC and figured out a way to get the privacy that fits our needs.

It's a thin piece of wood we found at Hobby Lobby; cut slots for the window openers and it gently holds the blinds against the window screen.

When not in use they are safely placed under a cushion.

We might leave the wood a natural color; paint them or attach decals of places we've been…thinking, thinking, thinking.

Excellent... I wonder how well something like that might work to increase privacy with the OceanAir shades that gap at the curve of the wall?

Very good modification. We like the mini blinds very much for their ability to control light and visibility, as well as the style match to the aluminum interior. Never have been concerned about the little opening to the side. Might use it in the bedroom though.
