Well – Yes I can! You see, you USED to be a shower curtain. Now your just a curtain!
I should probably back up a little here. Last week, I wrote about how I made personalized curtains for the bedroom, using a collection of family pictures. This week, I took making Waldo our own a step further. About 8 years ago, I helped my mom sew together the curtains they used as the privacy curtain (for those of you not familiar with being in an RV, that is the curtain you can draw which blocks the windshield). It has several functions. It serves to keep nosy neighbors from seeing you before you’ve had your coffee and it helps insulate from either the scorching sun or the cold wind. The curtains I helped my mom with were a lovely shade of 1970’s gold. And later, after a trip to Mexico, my mom made curtains for the rest of the windows from very colorful Mexican blankets she picked up at a bazaar. I wanted a new privacy curtain and window curtains, something more in line with our taste.
About the time I came up with the idea for the bedroom curtains, I also had an idea for the rest of the windows/windshield. Now don’t laugh! Fabric shower curtains!I have to admit, it isn’t the first time I’ve used shower curtains for window curtains.
After scouring too many websites to count, I picked several shower curtains and waited anxiously for them to arrive.
The first step, was to determine which part of the curtain I was going to use. Most shower curtains are way to long for window curtains…
Once I decided what part of the scene I wanted, I cut them to size and lined them with room darkening fabric (just like the bedroom).
It took a total of 3 to make the privacy curtain. The 2 sewn together will be drawn to the driver’s side and the 3rd one will be drawn to the passenger side when we are moving….
Now, no matter where we are, the scenery will be beautiful!
If I had made curtains like this for my office, this wouldn’t be what I am seeing right now…
Hitting the road can’t come soon enough!
