In the Scamp
of course, we have the stand-offs for the curtain rods.
When we first got our Scamp
, some friends highly recommended us getting some "privacy" curtains or liners. I sewed some simple Roc-Lun panels on them along the top of the curtain only. This material can be purchased from JoAnns.
STILL, I wanted more "black-out" for sleeping. I purchased some more "Roc-Lun" that IS totally "black-out"...not one bit of light
can pass through. I simply used some clear vinyl tape, taped the Roclun to some 3/8" wooden dowels. I roll them up and store them in the over head cabinets. The dowels easily fit in the curtain rod standoffs and really seal the windows
from light! I have 4 made- 2 for the side and 2 for the back window.
On the side windows
, I added a small piece of Velcro to the bottom corners of the roc-lun. Why? Because the walls angle in and there's about a 3-4" gap at the bottom of the window right over your head!
If I had it to do over, I would purchase the total blackout to sew on the back of the curtains instead of the "room darkening". That would have saved me money and kept me from having extra "shades" which is what the dowel combination acts as. The way it is though, when the wife has the curtains closed, light can still come through the windows
in the daytime...not as closed-in feeling she proclaims.
