I noticed that color change too, Rachel- white really makes them practically disappear into the background!

If I had a Scamp, I'd sure paint those puppies.

I like white as well. We're getting some white plastic continers from RV Widgets Works. I"ll be mounting those to fiberglass surfaces for additional storage.

All but one of our curtains are 22 years old. Ginny is replace the very light tan curtains with a small flower pattern. Ginny is using the old curtains as backing for the new.

We went to Mardens of Maine to select material. I love that place because they have so much material. I love the colors, arow of just blues, just yellows, a row of baticks (cp).... it took fun 2 hours to pick one out.

Places like that just throw your imagination around.

Great repurpose of the old curtains, I bought black out fabric from JoAnn for ours so our kids wouldn't wake up with the sun.

Rachel, It's the opposite with us, we look to wake up with the Sun. It's part of being retired and the fact that I had a morning paper route as a kid.

We're wondering what the trailer will be like now that we introduced all the color. In some sense the trailer used to be like a black (brown) and white movie.

Rock guard awning

Wanted to get our new awning support into thread and report on early sucess.

My new awning supports had their first test. It was windy yesterday, strong enough to blow over my nailed down sat dish .

Thru it all the awning supports did not budge. A successful first test.

Window Ties

We like to tie back our rear curtains in the day time. To make this easy I put one end if a bungee cord under a rear window screw. We wrap the cord around the curtain and return it ti the bungee.

Small solution that works well. Bungee cords come in all colors as well.

Where are the mounts for the screen? I can't tell how they are held up. Thank you! I've spent the whole evening reading your log. Wonderful!

I assume you were looking for info on th curtain tie. If not pleasse ask again.

I simply backed out a window screw a little, put one end of the bungee under the screw and retightened the screw.

Measuring Cups

This is really a small thing but goes along with our goal to have a place for everything.

Previously our measuring cups, rarely used items, were in the corner of a cabinet over the sink in a non organized way.

I've added hooks and located them on the inside of a closet wall on individual hooks. This wall space was unused and above the items stored below. The piece of wood for the hooks is stuck to the wall with two pieces of VHB strength tape.

Stacy, I plan on making a screen door this summer. Traditional variety like Scamp's screen door. If I do something different I"ll post it.
