Caravan Refurb - Part 2

With the bench seat covers all finished, next comes the curtains. I've had so much fun with curtains in my previous campervan refurbs. In my old VW kombi I used denim for the bench seats, Bintang t-shirts for cushions and vintage surf t-shirts for curtains. But age and experience has led me to slightly more practical/robust window furnishings of late.

With this caravan refurb I wanted to reach a compromise between the old creative, impulsive, impractical, fun me and the new family, slightly practical but still (hopefully) creative me. That's why I choose the blue gingham; a little bit cutsy vintage but still practical, easy to sew/wash and very cheap. I also lined them otherwise there could have been some rather interesting silhoutte shows coming from camp Galey:)))

And of course, a girls gotta have cushions.........just for fun.......completely unnecessary really:)

Next job is the transformation of some completely ridiculous size shelves and then the table. These projects need power tools though, which I am terrified of......so will have to wait for help from 'him outside'.

That vintage sheet that you've used on the cushions (the blue and green floral with yellow centres) is a complete match for my very fave pink and orange vintage sheet.
The cushions are gorgeous!

Just gorgeous Claire - is there anything nicer than blue and white gingham - so clean and fresh. I think you've balanced all those aspects you talk of very well! And you have to have cushions - I'm with you on that one!
