The curtains for the Casita door window are finished, and they turned out cuter than I expected. I still need to sew the little plastic rings to the back of the pleats. Actually they are mini draperies instead of curtains.
The holdup is waiting for paint to dry.
Ron found some gorgeous magnetic curtain rods that are the same color as the Casita’s interior hardware. I have some strong magnets that I will contact cement to the door so that I don’t have to drill holes in it. However, since I will be removing the curtain rod during the day and storing it in the closet, I wanted to paint the magnets white so they will be virtually invisible when the door is propped open when we are out camping.
I don’t know if the magnets would rust or not. But just to be safe I sprayed them with Rustoleum primer, then painted them with white Rustoleum enamel. It will take 24 hours for the paint to completely dry. (Especially since I got it on too thick!) 🙂
The magnetic mounts for the curtain rod are covered with a non-skid material that will keep them from sliding on the magnets. However, as strong as the magnets are, I have no worries about their not holding. I think we could even give a good tug to the curtains without disturbing their hold.
So, assuming Murphy stays away, I should have them up tomorrow.
I had intended to have the new spice racks up and the new faucet in by now. But I am moving in slow motion, probably due to the rain, and am having a hard time getting started on much of anything!
