This is what the bedroom looked like before I started:
It was hard to think about redecorting the RV. It came with that brown print bedspread, the pillows and the curtains. Some guy at the RV manufacturing plant decided what my bedroom should look like. That bedspread, while it matches everything int he room, was incredibly ugly and scratchy. I hated it from day one. As a matter of fact, in our other RV, I threw the bedspread that came with it away the very first day after we moved in bought a comforter and pillow shams to put in there. The only reason I didn’t do that with this one, is that the bed is a weird size–queen stuff is too big, king stuff is too small. So, we have used this same set for more than 4 years.
In October, I got my quilt finished and put it on the bed, and threw that ugly bedspread away. After the lovely quilt was on the bed, I immediately thought “I need some new pillows and curtains”. I got online and ordered some matching fabric so I could make them:
I kept thinking about making those pilllows, but with the flower girl dress sitting there on my sewing table, I couldn’t do anything else until that project was done. It taunted me–I wanted to do other things, but that dang dress wouldn’t let me. Thank goodness I finished it last week, so I could move on.
The pillow project took three days, mostly because I was doing other things during the day instead of sewing. When they were finished, I did the curtains in about two hours. So here is what it looks like now:
The only thing left to do now is cover the cornice boards. I am trying to decide what to do with them. I only have the striped fabric left, but I am thinking about ordering more of the brown to cover the cornice boards. What do you think? Stripes? Brown? one of the other prints in the quilt?
Tomorrow I am going to be posting a tutorial on how to make the RV curtains. Stay tuned for that.
