And we keep on keeping on, changes are a coming, and they are looking good.  Our RV is a great cozy nest, I find I don’t want to leave the extra comfy bed or the awesome couch that wraps its arms around me and won’t let go!!

 

 

Last we left off, I was teasing you all with some delicious fabrics we found to work with. This is the items we bought for the bedroom.

Aren’t they fun?  I fell in love in love with them.   So this is what we did with the material…

 

 

 

 

This is what we did with the solid gray fabric.

BEFORE-the UGLY headboard

took the fabric off the upper decor and painted it with chalk board paint so I can change the words. Now it reads “a couple of happy campers”.

we wrapped the headboard in the gray suede-like fabric and added diamond buttons for aesthetics. I love them.

Since I wanted to keep gray as my accent color in the bedroom, we wrapped the valance on the 2 bedroom windows with a solid gray and used the print for something different.  Now they are fresh and clean, no more “other people’s fabric”!  The shade color will just have to do, not going through the expense of changing them out.  They go with the brown ceiling.

New bedroom ceiling.

 

Yes, Randy even recovered the bedroom ceiling to match the new ceiling in the living room.

 

 

So that’s it for today folks, hope you enjoy!  Next blog I’ll show you what we’ve been doing in the living room with the brown (fake) leather.

We’ve been shopping for material for the motor home…stayed tuned to see what we’re doing with it!!

Things have been in motion, stuff is getting done, progress is in effect!

Let me remind you of how UGLY the flooring in the motor home was before, Randy couldn’t take it!! That was the very first thing he did to it…rip and tear, and he’s off and running.

Rip and Tear

We had 4 choices of colored flooring to consider, only 2 were viable options compared to the color of the cabinets.  The lighter wood color with gray tones and a beach ‘feel’ lost out to the darker wood color with warm undertones. It seemed to offset the color of the cabinets and went better with some ideas I had rolling around in my head already. Randy liked it better and I had to agree. I hate when he’s right!

We took the beast for a trial run this weekend. Didn’t venture far, just an hour away to Arcadia, FL, cow country.  It’s good to get away from the eddy that is living on the edge, also known as the coast. Went to hang with my parents for a spell.

So we packed up our tools, paint, yada, yada, you know it can’t be a relaxing vacay.  Only went from Friday to Sunday so I can’t really even call it a vacay.

We just needed to give the ol’ girl a try. Did I tell you she is a 2000, with 47k miles?  She handles good on the road according to Randy. We had an Indendence motor home a while back and he did NOT like the way it drove. He said it felt top heavy and light. He never felt comfortable driving it. Thank goodness his brother didn’t mind chauffeuring us around.
