Drawing to a close

Well, as the last piece of this very large jigsaw puzzle is to make our DIY campervan curtains, we set about trawling our local charity shops. We were on the look-out for some neutral coloured curtains that we could cut down and adapt to fit our campervan windows. It wasn’t long before we arrived home with four large curtains that cost us the princely sum of £3.00. What a bargain!

Making our DIY campervan curtains:

The curtains were cut down to size (keeping the heading tape wherever we could). Then we hemmed all the cut edges, and lined the curtains with some old sheeting for extra warmth and privacy. Once they were done, I dug out some curtain track we had laying about, and using self-tapping screws I fitted it to the top of the windows.

Once the curtains were put up, I realised I needed to make some modifications as they hung too far away from the window. So I threaded some curtain wire through the bottom and attached it to each end of the window, making for a good fit when the curtains are shut.

Oh yeah – with the leftover bits of material, I made a couple of curtain tiebacks too!

Curtains for the sliding door:

For the sliding door, I used curtain wire top and bottom. The curtain isn’t fitted all the time, as it would get dirty very easily with the door sliding back and forth. When it’s not needed, the curtain unhooks from the door and is kept in a storage bag under one of the seats.

I also made a simple blind for the bathroom. Like the sliding door curtain, I used curtain wire top and bottom.
