We are officially halfway renovated! I know I always say this, but I just love the way each of these transformations turn out. To be able to make this motorhome feel more like us, makes me want to spend even more time in it. It truly feels like a home away from home and that means something when you’re a homebody like myself.
Well, except for the corner cabinet. I got so excited to get started on this space that I almost forgot about the before photos, altogether. So much gray and brown, thankfully we already had nice countertops in place.
After ripping out that corner cabinet, I started painting the walls. I used 1 coat of white primer and 2 coats of Ivory Lace by Sherwin Williams. If you’re concerned about us losing storage, don’t worry! I added back what we lost + more by adding (much prettier) baskets over the toilet. I even have room to add a shelf and two more if we decide we need it down the road. Haha.. down the road. I’m so corny.
I wanted to try something I’ve seen done before by others, but never attempted to do myself. Sharpie Shiplap! I thought the motorhome would be the best place to try it since you have to consider any weight added during renovations on an RV. Creating this faux paneling kept us from adding the additional weight of real wood planks. I think it looks great and you wouldn’t know it was sharpie unless someone pointed it out to you.
I cut out the center out of this scalloped basket to create a pretty “light fixture”. I often get asked about the baskets getting hot, but the RV lighting is just low voltage battery powered lights. Getting hot is not a concern to me. I’ve had them up for 6+ months in the front half of the motorhome without any issue. I just attach them with liquid nail.
I went with gold finishes to tie in with the rest of the motorhome. I decided to use this swiveling mirror. I like that it installed very securely and also that it could hang in the corner above our corner sink. I love the curves in this faucet. It compliments the scalloped trim so well. The toilet paper holder was a splurge and honestly if the kids can’t replace the toilet paper when it’s this easy, I give up.
I added these baskets behind the toilet for some extra storage. They are so much prettier than the corner cabinet and add a nice texture and warmth to this bright room. The wooden cabinet knobs are a staple go-to for me. I love how they tie in with the basket color in here. I added the shorter pegs on the walls in here so that we could move our mop and broom into this bathroom instead of right by the front door. Our coats always land there and we were running out of room. This will be great to have a designated space for cleaning tools. Pretty and practical.
My goal is to be completely finished by the end of May. This is probably a bit ambitious considering the busy month we have ahead, but its always fun to have goals to work towards.
