Motorhome Bedroom Reno

June 2, 2022

Phase one:

About two weeks ago, I set out to complete the Motorhome reno. I only have two rooms left, the back bedroom and full bathroom. Turns out that was a little too ambitious, as I previously thought it might be. I didn’t take into consideration how much of my time would go into planning, prepping and scheduling our cross country adventure. Phew. Thats a full time job.

PS: We’re currently sitting outside the trailer repair shop. It’s 7:18am and we left at 6:30am. The trailer is hooked up, but is reading as disconnected to our RV. Why is that a problem? The brakes won’t engage and we’re having a hard time stopping this “train.”

Back to the reno:

So, I was able to complete what I like to call “phase 1” of the master bedroom (our only real bedroom). I still need to come up with a solution for the sliding doors. There isn’t anything wrong with them, but I do think they could be better. I’ll either swap them out for something completely different or paint them. I may plank the walls once we return home, but for now its much brighter and I’m happy with what I was able to get done.

Trailer update: The time is now 7:30 am. We have moved to now sitting inside the repair shop for repairs that should take 45 minutes. You know, I could be upset, but I’ve learned to expect some hiccups along the way when traveling in a motorhome. At least, thats been our experience. I think I’ll start calling the motorhome, The Lemon. Thats her new name.

Before Photos:

It’s always fun to see where we started. All brown… no surprise there.

Directly across from the bed is our closet area. We also have a coffee bar in our bedroom. We usually always wake up before our kids and this way we can have our morning coffee without disturbing them.

After:

Although hard to see here, I recovered the headboard in a buffalo check curtain you can find here. The pillows match almost perfectly and are very affordable for a pair of two. Find those here.

I painted the cabinetry Ivory Lace by Sherwin Williams. It is one of my favorite white paint colors. I removed the brushed nickel pulls and added my favorite wood knobs. You can find those here.

One of the best changes I made in here was adding bedside lamps. They create such a cozy ambience. They are incredibly easy to install and plug-in. You can find those here.

I used these cord covers to hide the wires.

On the bed, we use Beddys (the comfiest cocoon-like feeling you’ve ever felt). The ruffle coverlet is mostly for looks and to soften the room up a bit. And to finish, this muslin throw from The Loomia. It is a beautiful taupe on one side and olive green on the other. I love the weight of this blanket. It’s not too heavy and not too light. Just right, baby bear.

I used the same bamboo shades in the bedroom that i’ve used on all other windows in the motorhome. You can find those here. The hydrangea material is something I purchased in bulk over a year ago and is no longer available.

The baskets I used for light coverings in the other side of the RV are sold out. So, I found these very similar scalloped baskets to use in the bedroom. I just cut out the centers and used liquid nail to secure to the ceiling.

The wallpaper was a gift from a follower and I’m not sure of the source.

And if you haven’t jumped over to the NESPRESSO coffee yet, this is where you can find it. The quality of the coffee pods are SO MUCH BETTER. I cannot even describe how unpleasant a Kcup is after drinking a Nespresso coffee.

don’t mind my construction dust here. I got so excited about completion that I forgot all about clean up before photos.

I love these 18″ pulls for our closet doors. They are a beautiful champagne gold and the perfect amount of pizazz for the space. I hung the curtains inside of the cabinet doors with these sash rods.

7:50am: The motorhome had a connectivity issue that has been fixed and we are finally on the road.

Whats next:

Would you think I was crazy if I told you I almost brought my paint on our cross country trip? I thought I might find some downtime to finish up the bathroom, but then reality hit. I have two kids and not very much downtown when they are out of school. So, once we get back home I have big plans for the finishing up the bathroom and the last details of the bedroom. But for now, I love how much more it feels like home.

XOXO,

Brittany

    Beautiful transformation! Glad you get it all fixed and back on the road. We used to camp with a 30ft. Trailer and we have a lot of stories about issues we have had over the years. Not so much fun in the moment it happens but makes for great memories and stories to tell. Your kids will love traveling and making memories-there is nothing like camping and traveling!! Enjoy!!
