Hamguy, in your project, please tell us how you take the header pad off the wall that is over the door. Can you just use a screwdriver to pry off the buttons revealing screws? I'm curious to see what our door looks like w/o the padding and if it is feasible to discard it all together.
Also, if the MM is installed "permanently" under the padding, do you plant to roll it up when not in use... or just let it hang after fold down and during travel?
For Gary and I, this project has been on the back burner a while now, so I've been reading everyone's posts for ideas. Here is what I am considering doing:
I have concerns about my ability of cutting and sewing the length of both panels in a straight neat manner. So for width, I think I'll fold over and sew the MM width to fit the door, similar to the way handbuilder did.
To hang the MM we picked up a 21" sash curtain rod today.
I was thinking of attaching the curtain rod into the wall over the door. I'll sew some black binding along the top to form a "pocket" the rod will slide into. I'll have to trust that I can sew that short of a distance neatly...we'll see how well that works out...
The idea is that we'll have the option of taking it down while in route or if the screen is not needed leaving small brackets instead of Velcro along the top.
I also picked up white Velcro to replace the black that came with the MM kit. I think the white will be more discrete when the MM curtain is not in use.
If the curtain rod idea doesn't work out, we may look into removing the door header padding and attaching it under there like thehamguy...
I'll post pics when the project is completed... fingers crossed, hopefully later tomorrow.
