Can we talk some more about the IKEA Blinds?

Now that I've spent many nights in my 22fb with all the mods I've made only one of them is nagging me and that has to be with the "mini blinds" at the head and bottom of the bed. It's a pain to lift the mattress to get at the underbed storage and having it catch on the "mini blind" bottom bracket holders. It's just a matter of time before they either wear a hole in the mattress or simply break off. So I'm looking really hard at replacing these two blinds with the IKEA. But I need some reinforcement.

For any of you all that have installed the IKEA blinds in the BR area would you mind posting a picture of what the top of the blind looks like installed above the window and another picture of what your using to hold the bottom tab in place?

Thanks
Pat

This is the only photo I could locate of the IKEA roller shades after I installed them in the bedroom area of our 22 Sport. Since we sold it I don't have access to run take more photos ... or I would. Hope this helps you with your decision ... one way or the other. I will tell you that I was completely happy with the results of installing the IKEA roller shades. The fit nicely against the wall and mattress worked perfectly with them. I used the 3M product as follows to clip the shades closely to the wall.

Thank you Lisa. I'm finding it a little more challenging with finding ideas for the 27' ... but I did some poking around inside the Airstream while camping this weekend exploring some ideas.
