I was going to make new curtains and upholstery for our old pup, but we quickly realized it was too small for us.

I may knit or sew a blanket for our camper, but not sure what I'll do beyond that. I guess as time passes I'll get tired of the curtains and make new ones. Hubby will just have to not notice.

Our new trailer is mostly a brown. I've added deep red whereever I can. Pots and pans, tea towels, dishes etc. But I also want to add some bears. Maybe replace the border or on towels etc. Not blatant - just a few subtle touches.

I think if you want to take the mfg's border off try in a spot where it won't be noticed and use a hairdryer to warm the spot then peel slowly. (works great for sales stickers on things too.)

Our Stealth TH has a lot of brown, with a little gold thrown in. DH hates the chocolate brown cover on the bed, so until I can find something we both like I plan to embroider the visible edges of the spread and pillow covers with some autumn-ie leaves in different shades of brown, tan, and gold. This weekend I'll be heading into the Tucson Hobby Lobby for some fabrics to make some baskets and boxes, as well as 2 hanging organizers to hold iPads, phones, and glasses next to bed. DH loves Route 66, so maybe I can toss a little of that in for a border; I already have a pattern in my collection.

DH wants me to pull down the privacy curtain at the end of the bed and put a huge monogram on it. I convinced him that might not be feasible, but seriously thinking about creating a flag/curtain that he can hang on the door window and would match one we plan to hang outside. Maybe around the theme of our motorcycles. My sewing machine can digitize and embroider simple pictures, so if nothing else it should be fun trying.

Guess I'd better take some pictures with me so I don't end up with a mish-mash of clashing colors and designs!

Ditto with the mostly browns...and red is our chosen pop of color. DH is *not* the type to keep it all brown and matching. The man hates blacks, browns...his shirts are bright colors and he has *no* problem wearing a pink shirt. He *loves* the glow-in-the-dark colors that are all the rave this year. I had to drag him away from glow in the dark green, orange, blue and pink golf shirts at Target the other day.......yeah, it's a truly *Country* Club, (shotgun starts really *are* started with a shotgun...that was a real shocker for him when we moved back here to my home town...but...I'm just sayin! I don't want him lookin like Ricky Fowler...the two legged tangerine.

Duck Dynasty theme? whut...ya gonna hang fake beards up as curtain valances? /snork Maybe some Spanish moss hung on the corners of the mirrors, camo curtains and bedspread? And duck calls hanging from all the cabinet handles? Yeah, you're in my wheelhouse now. (wink) Don't forget to put some HEY JACK phrases on the walls...or maybe have it stenciled on your power tongue jack. You'll certainly be HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY! You could also have "they gone" stenciled on the back of the RV. That's Ms Kay's favorite saying when someone leaves their house....he gone, she gone, they gone.

Since there's a lotta Cherokee runnin' though my veins, I'm collecting Native American post cards, pottery, etc. all with a touch of red in them. Nothing truly valuable, mind you, but maybe a "nouveau" peace pipe, dream catcher, medicine wheel, and there's a Cherokee Wedding Blanket on eBay I'm hankerin' for somethin' awful....for the bedroom.

My small A-Frame trailer has brown curtains and cushions. I used a two sided quilted bed spread and folded it over to cover the pull out sofa bed while also revealing both sides of the spread. DH thought I recovered the cushions. It was a cheap way to add color and reduce the brown.

Check Wayfair.com - Online Home Store for Furniture, Decor, Outdoors & More for inexpensive (but quality) bedroom sets, curtains and decorating ideas and items....that is where I purchased this queen size spread.
