Painting Scamp Cabinets, replaced stock curtains

Scamp 13, "GypSea's" renovation. Painting MDF cabinets Rustoleum "Aged Gray" chalk paint. Plan to finish with Johnsons Paste Wax to add protection. New curtains my friend sewed for me, made from Target curtain panels, $9.99. Each panel made about 3 panels! Trying to attach photos but experiencing some technical difficulties

Karen you're motivating me. One of my curtain panels in the scamp is 47" wide. Most tiers come 2 to a package, 28" each, total 56. I can't sew. Is it possible to sew together two tiers lengthwise with some stitch on a machine to join them? Found some lovely tiers on sale at Target that would only require some shortening, etc., whereby rod pocket could be used.

Cabinet paint

I tried coating with Polycrylic sealer and it lifted the chalk paint off, made a bit of a mess so that's why I decided I'm going to wax. I realize wax is not as durable & will require more upkeep but I like the look better. Anything is improvement over the fake wood

Water based!!! Matt finish. Let dry completely.
I make my own chalk paint with plaster of paris, water and latex paint.

Curtain redo from Target panels

My best friend sewed these for me! They are standard curtain panels & she was able to make all my Scamp 13 camper panels with less than 3 panels!

LED Lumidome lights fit perfect in the awning groove

Bought these little lights and a battery pack that lasts 10 hours. Our little Scamp 13 looked like Vegas!

Wendy,

Go get a product called "Heat and Bond" or "Stitch Witchery. It comes in sheets or a tape looking product. You want the "no sew" variety of the tape You can find it at fabric stores.

Take the tiers you want to join. Sandwich the tape between them where you want them to join and iron according to the package instructions. Easy Peasy! It is machine washable and dryable.

It's great for hemming too. It's the nonsewer's best friend...

GypSea the Scamp

Led lights fit right into the awning groove. This was our first camp outing in our 2013 Scamp Christmas Day. We barely pulled up to our site when a neighboring camper came up and was admiring her
