Do you have outdated RV valances that you desperately want to change the look of? It turns out reupholstering RV window valances is quick and easy using tools you most likely already have. No sewing required!
Tools needed for this project
- A staple gun and a regular stapler: to staple the fabric to the valances.
- Needlenose pliers: to remove staples that get messed up during the stapling process.
- Fencing pliers (the black and yellow handle tool in the picture above): this tool is optional because it can be hard to find in stores. Needlenose pliers work fine for this project, but fencing pliers can be faster and easier on the hands, especially for projects that require a lot of staple removal.
- Hammer:to hammer in brads (and staples that didn’t go in flush to the wood).
- Screwdrivers: to remove the valances from the walls and the blinds from the valances.
- Chalk pen: to draw on the fabric.
- Binder clips: to hold the fabric in place.
- Measuring tape: to measure.
- Straight edge: used to connect the dots to make a straight line.
- Scissors: to cut the fabric.
