RV RENOVATION: I Don’t Know About This Idea

Kevin came up with an idea that I’m not sure about. I’ll show you in a minute what it is.

-But I’ll begin here . . .

Yesterday we were able to paint some more of the inside of the RV. I thought it would only take us an hour to finish painting.


However, all we have left—as far as I know—is behind the couch, the wall next to the driver’s side, and touching up parts we already painted.

I’m guilty of slapping the paint on too thin.

My bad.

. . . So, there are a few places I have to put a second coat on.

My grandpa is probably rolling in his grave because he was a professional painter when he was alive and clearly, I didn’t inherit that gene.

Hey, at least I’m trying, right?

That’s how we learn.

Kevin came up with a creative idea to do to our bedroom walls.

His idea is to make the wall look like it has wallpaper showing through the paint, and then decorating it with cool album covers, flyers, whatever—sort of like a scrap book wall.

Before I show you pictures of what we did, check out this cool ass book we discovered.

We’ve used a lot of pages from this book to help decorate inside of our RV.

Kevin did a decoupage between the cabinets that used to be blue velvet.

He created a patchwork collage on the living room wall, using pages from this gem of a book.

 . . . And incorporated his idea for our bedroom wall, using once again, pages from this awesome book.

He stuck pieces he torn up to different parts of the wall. Then I painted around them. 

As of this moment, here’s what his wall and mine looks like in our bedroom.

I don’t know how I feel about it.

Maybe after we do the touch ups, I’ll dig it then.

-Anyway, our RV renovation is coming along. I suspect when we put the flooring in, it’s going to be a pain in the ass.

I could be wrong.

I hope I’m wrong.

. . . But I have a feeling cutting up pieces of the flooring to fit awkward places is going to be a bitch and time consuming.

Of course, I’ll keep you up-to-date.

Renovating an RV is both trying and rewarding at the same time.

It's a lot of work and tends to be frustrating.

However, we’re creating a home-on-wheels.

 . . . And in the end, it’ll be all good.
