DIY!!

So as I mentioned I have been having a blast remodeling our motorhome and wanted to share the progress and how I have done some of the amazing changes!

I started by picking a theme and I had hard time with just one theme. So basically I decided on a color scheme and just went with it! Mostly teals, greys, and minty colors. I started googling and looking on Pinterest for anything and everything about remodeling a motorhome. I didn’t come up with a lot with that search so I decided to select areas I wanted to start with.

CABINETS! BIG PROJECT!

Being my first remodel of a motorhome I had to research and read a lot of ides from other people to decide what exactly I could do with these type of cabinets. Since they were made of MDF board I was limited (so I thought). I decided that I needed to go with an oil based paint (stinky) and I had to remove all of the cabinet doors, handles, and hinges. I got all of that done and now I needed to start sanding and prepping them for paint. This was a daunting task but needed to be done for the cabinets to come out looking amazing! I used Rust-Oleum 2004 Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 White Water-Based Interior/Exterior Primer Sealer, 1-Quart to prime all of the cabinets and doors. I found this one to be the best option for what I was working with. I then used Glidden oil based pint from Home Depot and had it colored for what I wanted. It took us a good couple weeks to get all of this done and boy was it a lot of work!

So I had all of the painting done and I was thinking well I really do not want to put those same old brass hinges and handles back on my beautiful cabinets so I found these hinges Cosmas 17139-SN Satin Nickel Hinge Variable Overlay [17139-SN] – 25 Pair Pack and handles Cosmas 1211SN Satin Nickel Cabinet Hardware Handle Pull – 3″ Inch (76mm) Hole Centers – 25 Pack and WOW what a difference just that made! Super excited about how it’s coming along! I also purchased some removable wall papers for additional personalizing I thought would bring out some of the colors in the cabinets. Birch Tree Peel And Stick Wallpaper  and Nuwallpaper Beachwood Peel & Stick Wallpaper, I LOVE the beachwood look and I used it on the inside of the cabinet doors. The birch tree I actually used on the bathroom door but I did prime all these first just to ensure they would stick well. I will note that they still started to peel off in a couple areas so I did come back in and use Rust-Oleum 69384 1-Quart Suregrip 122 Heavy Duty Clear Strippable Wallpaper Adhesive and I have not had a problem since. ! If you like the decals I also got those here … Sneak peak Below!

It was a horrible basic motorhome wallpaper. (I will be posting before and after’s just as soon as I have it completed) You can see the new wallpaper border in the picture below .. I LOVE these! They are super sticky so no worries on them peeling off (just don’t touch them to much) measure, peel, and stick literally! Walla new wallpaper border!
