Looks great, Gina! I think once you get the grout in, it won't seem like the window frame is sticking out too far. I wondered if you'd need longer screws.

Thanks for the tips on the tile clippers, etc.

I'm looking to renovate the woodwork and color of my live in 5th wheel. I have concerns about the materials of the wood though. The cabinetry uses what I believe is wood contact paper over top of what seems like MDF or particle board. What is the best way of refinishing this to a solid color (white in my case)?

My thinking is that the contact paper needs to go, so peel/scrap it away, but I am unsure after that. Also, some sections of the cabinetry is 1/8 plywood paneling. These panels are what I am particularly curious about the best way to refinish. I think it might be easiest to replace those panels with something that has a little more body, but that would be potentially difficult.

Depending on whether there is a good option or not I may lean toward replacing the cabinets with a light hardwood, as this is a live in unit that will not be designed to travel much.

But that cost's more, so if you have found any tricks, please let me know! My first post FYI
