It's a blow (cutting) torch.

No doubt that would sure do it!

And here we have the Lambriquin Elimination Process:

Step One. Take down MCD Day/Night Shades and then the clips that hold them in place.



Step 2: Remove bottom screws from lambriquins.



Step 3: Remove top screws from valance/header.



Step 4. Carefully drop the valance/lambriquins and then remove the screws that hold the three pieces together. Ours had 3 screws on each side.



Step 5. Photograph your success with photobombing doggie.

Here's the reinstalled valance without lambriquins. We reinstalled the MCD shades and put felt pads on the backs of the shade bars to keep them from banging around when we're on the road.

So, will you shorten them or eliminate? BTW, my blinds are usually up for travel and don't bang around. The window looks pretty good with just the valance.

For now, we're just eliminating. We'll see how it goes. We usually travel with all the shades closed, especially in the summertime to keep the sun out.

Well. Now that the new sofa is in, I don't like the look without the lambriquins. You all saw this coming.

Why does this sound like what goes on in my house/RV?

Pictures!

The pictures make it look too easy! My shades don't have the easy to release clips. Oh noooooooo! Screws. Lots of 'em.

Our coach is across town in storage, so I can't get in there to scope it out right away.

Here's the dilemma... Will it look dumb to remove the lambriquins from one window behind the sofa but not the other over the dinette? I'm thinking we need to figure out a way to shorten them but not totally remove. Any suggestions will be sincerely appreciated.


On our DSDP I had to remove the long section of the light hanging down in your picture, as ours were installed lower and the chair backs hit them. I just left the lambrequins as they were but we also have added wood trim along the bottom between each side on each window.

Excellent Sarah.......Keep the pictures coming including the new installation....My 35K has the identical living room area with Fireplace , etc. Unless I missed it, how did you finally get the old unit out ? Did you have to damage it ? Any tips would help, as we are seriously considering the same with ours. I will be looking at The Lazyboy store soon. What model was your recliner unit? Thanks again and great stuff.
