Question Living Area Curtains


So I changed out our curtains that came with our rig to these here. Because of the way I had them cut and sewn I didn't like the way they fell. They have an extra loop on the bottom so I installed another curtain rod at the bottom to keep them taught but still be able to draw them closed when needed. I was thinking about adding some cute burlap tie backs on them. I dunno which looks better and my hubby is no help. He says either way looks good. Need opinions please.

I can't see the bottom of the curtain but I think it looks neater with the tie back.

Angelbunnies,
LOl - no worries. I like the neat look of the tie backs but I'm jumping ships to the other side now. Without the tie backs would be less work to adjust the curtains and no worried of the material getting wrinkled.


psgranpal,
Nice pictures - thanks for sharing. It's always fun to see what other people have done to personalize their RVs.

Yes it is always fun to see what others have done to the inside of their RV. And I agree it would be less work because on the couch where my husband places himself most of the time he keeps the curtains on the side and behind him closed. So it would only be for maybe 3 sets of curtains that would have the tie backs on them all the time. But I think I'm gonna try it anyways just for fun.

Talking With or w/out tie backs?

Decided to go with handmade burlap tie backs. Made them myself. Pretty proud of myself actually LOL .... and decided to not go with the second curtain rod on the bottom. Looks better this way I think.
