Nice ideas, Gilda. Especially like the pockets on the curtains. Very handy and also help to weigh down the curtains. I'm going to sew some curtains using black-out fabric. Husband likes it really dark at night.

Gilda, great finds! Yes, multipurpose is the way to go. Fall is my favorite time to Glamp also.

That curtain-pocket idea is genius! And I love your themes.

Thank you for your kind comments. Regarding black out curtains... Curtains lined with black-out fabric or curtains with built-in black out backing are thick and rather heavy. They are difficult to slide open and closed on a rod and leak light around the edges. I have chosen to have the best of both worlds. I made black-out shades which hand-roll behind my curtains. The shades are made of black-out curtain lining (Ron-Loc) available at most fabric stores. I cut the fabric to fit just inside the curtain rod holders. I sew a channel on the top for a 1/4" dowel which extends beyond the width of the two curtain rod holders and rests on top of them. On the bottom I sew a hem and attach hook-sided Velcro which easily adheres to the rat fur on the wall. The shade, which is at the "head" of our bed, has a solid strip of Velcro all the way across the bottom to keep out cold air which leaks from the window. The other two window shades have 3" strips of Velcro intermittently along the bottom making for easier removal and allowing for some necessary air circulation (just not on my face).

The shade effectively keeps out unwanted light at night and protects the curtains and upholstery from sun damage while on the road, while in storage and even while parked at the campground when we are not inside. On hot days the shade keeps the interior cool. When we want light, but not prying eyes, coming in we roll up the shades and enjoy our translucent curtains. I change up the look of curtains by simply hanging curtain panels on the ends.

These photos were taken during the day. You can see where the light leakage occurs. Keep in mind that I have curtains all the way across the shade when in use blocking most of the light. Note: These photos were taken showing my "early stage" of development with Velcro on the top instead of the dowel. I had to take down, fold and store the "shades" in the early version. I like rolling the shades much better.

LOL, Ellen, it was wonderful, and reminded me of drinking wine with you and Mike at the campfire. I'll be making the Algonac reservations next week too.
With regards to this thread, my fix-ups that I had planned for this winter have been delayed many times over, due to the darn Michigan weather. I need it a little warmer than 2 degrees to work out there!
I did, however, get a nice yellow cooler on ebay

Like Donna D, we have decided that the "clean" (or, perhaps even "sleek") suits us just right...

Looks like you worked out an effective solution for light, heat and cold infiltration there, Gilda. Thanks for the detailed explanation. Lots of good ideas here!

Beautiful woodworking and so many thoughtful improvements. Particularly found the rope shelf retraints very cool.

Thanks, Fran, so very much for your kind compliments!

The "rope" restraints is really not rope at all, but rather, "bungee" cord that I bought at my local Ace Hardware... they sell it by the foot, as I recall, I used the 1/4" size.

By the way, the restraints really do work well.
