We use roll up blinds - and have been pleased with them. Ordered them online, cut to length. They are 'room darkening', which allows us to sleep when we want.

Unfortunately I don't have a pic with the blinds pulled down. The long one across the back window is mounted to the overhead cabinet and concealed by the wooden valence. The side window blind is mounted on the valence itself; you can see it hanging down a bit in the picture.

I love what Gilda has done. We just might have to dress up our window treatments a bit!

# 1. Can anyone know ofa source for such short roll-up blinds for the side windows, and wide-short roll-up blinds for the front and back windows of a Scamp 13?

#2. Has anyone use something crazy to make curtains? Like bath-towels, bathing suits (just kidding!) Just anything different that you liked!

All comments will be appreciated......

You asked what you can use to make curtains. How about the towels, old dresses or shirts, bedsheets, shower curtains, pillowcases, jeans, old-time cloth flour sacks, or anything your heart desires?
