Did some light remodeling in the TT

My wife mandated some TT updates so this weekend I obliged and we got it out of storage to do a little work. We added "art" to the bathroom, kitchen, and dining nook. Essentially we used 3M picture hanging Velcro like stuff to hang pictures/art on the walls. The wife added various camping themed pillows throughout, 3M adhesive key rack and hat hangers and a few other odds and ends. Finally I added a simulated glass tile backsplash on the kitchen wall.

I only have a couple pics so far but I think the backsplash is a big improvement.

Good looking mods. I really like the knife storage, did u install that? Also, the simulated glass tile-is it plastic? If so I was wondering how well it works with the oven on.

The knife rack is standard in the model Wind River trailer we have. The backsplash is a sheet stick on product that has raised flexible plastic like tiles that resemble glass and stone. There isn't enough heat that gets that far back to cause any issues. The wall never gets warm. The product is easy to clean and really easy to apply. it isn't cheap at $75 for the back wall but it was worth it in my opinion.

Love the backsplash. Did you have to take the inside window trim off when you installed it?

I didn't remove the window frame or anything that drastic. I just created a paper template for the rounded window corners and was careful with my layout and marking.

Please let us know where you got the material "sheet stick on product that has raised flexible plastic like tiles that resemble glass and stone"

Nice work!

What did you use to cut the tile to make it fit the rounded window?

Hi guys, some answers:

They are called "Smart Tiles" We bought them at Lowes but they also have them on-line. They can be cut with scissors or with an razor knife easily enough. I just made a paper template of the curve then laid it on the tile sheets and cut with my razor knife. They are peel and stick. Just clean the surface well and they stick nicely.

This is a similar color to what I bought. You can get them in packs of 6 or 12 I think. We paid $37 for a pack of 6 and it took 3 packs. You just have to shop around for the best price. We got ours at Lowes for that price and could see them in person.

I was skeptical at first but I think they are a pretty good upgrade that is light weight and easy to apply.

Moved spice rack to under sink and added a drawer

I did some too. I apologize for the darkness..no flash on the iPad.
The neighbour built it....easy for him as he builds furniture. He made the drawer front from a scrape piece of walnut. Boy is he talented. No butt joints on that drawer...with full extension roll out hardware. No soft closers ...yet!!

Installed two 12volt wall receptacles. Picture 1

We have no 12 volt wall receptacles in the bedroom and the ventilation even with the ceiling max fan running is not great. ( only one window opens)
We have a 12 volt 10 inch fan. There is a converter from 120volt to 12 volt as well as run on d batteries. I bought cigarette adapters so I can run the fans off my TT batteries. Here's the pics of the project. Installed a 5 amp fuse a each receptacle. Ran the power off of the bin/ hatch lights.
