|After cleaning and painting the ceiling panels|
the 20-year old curtains (shown above) started to look a little dingy.
|We also had to solve the problem of the visible nuts |
that were a result of upgrading the windows frames many years ago.
|We found 7/8-inch diameter nylon hole plugs--the only|
problem was that we had to buy 1500 of them!
(The remaining 1400 are on sale on eBay.)
|We brought some fabric samples to the boat and decided on this textured|
gold and tan fabric. It coordinates well with the settee covers and will
brighten the space up without being too busy.
|Since all the curtain panels were different sizes, I measured, cut, and |
sewed each panel individually. As I am learning, nothing
is ever simple with boat projects!
|I sewed the curtain tape on the back|
of the curtains in the precise position that was needed.
|All the panels had to be labeled as to their placement on the boat. |
This one is port side panel #2. The arrow indicates the aft direction.
|The reveal! All that effort was worth it!|
