RV remodel

We are finished with the remake of the back bedroom in the RV.
It is so perfect!

We have been working on it for a few weekends.When we bought this RV we thought the separate bedroom would be perfect for my sewing and sleeping needs.It was not. The bunks were to small and the table was made for kids to fit not a full size woman.

The front bed area is perfect for Mr. T.

So we went to work and changed things around. Good thing Mr. T is so handy. We cut down a headboard from my favorite 2nd hand store.Carol Ann's.
Mr.T. then mounted the light under the shelf of the headboard. So much handier than where it was before.

We took out the closet and moved it to the side wall from the back wall.
Put in a bigger bed platform with a bigger mattress.There is so much more floor space and storage.
Mr.T made sliding doors under the bed how cool is that???

All the little repair things are also done. I have to admit I got a little picky. Things just had to be done the right way or not at all.
So I filled all the nail holes. Did I ever tell you Paper Clay works really well for that? I worked on one piece of trim for over an hour to get it to fit just right.

The ugly green carpet is gone.
 The walls and everything are clean and we are ready to go!
I still need to make the new curtains this week.You can see the before and after pictures ,of the remake,on my web shots pages.

Hope the weather is nice next weekend.
Have a great week.j

I can tell that you have done a good job of remodeling the front bed area of your RV, congratulations! You are definitely ready to go. Anyway, do you mind if I ask what the letter “T” in Mr. T stands for? I’m really curious about the name. Haha! Be safe! It’s too bad that I cannot see the before and after photos.

That quilt will definitely look great on your wall. Ahh, the room is so pretty! RV living sure is fun, especially when you get to stay in places you've never been to. Well, good luck on your curtain! :D

If I’m not mistaken, you RV look like the 2010 Forest River Sunseeker! What I love about that model is the skylight area, letting the natural light inside the vehicle. As a result, you will enjoy the benefits of a pleasantly warm atmosphere inside your RV. Also, you don’t need to turn on the lights during day, so it helps you save on gas.

I wonder what it feels like to be living in an RV? You made superb ‘interior’ touch ups! It already looks like a real room of a house. I also agree with Tobias that it is beneficial to have a skylight. It is energy efficient and very cost-effective too.
