Thanks you all! I love being in it now, it really feels personal as opposed to living in something that was not my taste at all! I really have no idea what carriage was thinking with the decor they put in our RV
My husband thought I was crazy when I told him I wanted a back splash (he was POSITIVE it wouldn't stay up, which it most definitely has stayed!) now he's really happy with it! In the living room and kitchen area we used Dutch Cocoa, and really the only reason my husband let me get it was it looked more brown than purple on the sample. It's a good mixture of the two! My mom is very into interior designing and was sure I was picking a color too dark, but I wanted the camper to feel warm plus we have all light cabinetry which I've grown to love since the renovation, before I hated having the light golden colors. I know now that was a result of ugly green and brass hardware it was paired with! I found the fabric at Jo-anns on a HUGE sale. I have probably 15 yards of fabric left over, it's ridiculous! I had no idea how to measure the windows to figure out how much fabric I would need and I didn't want to run out. I think I got 25 yards
I googled no sew roman shades (I have never sewn before, I've never tufted before, I've never upholstered before or done anything with fabric! So if I can make Roman shades, reupholster seat cushions, and make a tufted headboard ANYONE can!) 365 Days to Simplicity: Easy no sew Roman Shades
I followed this one really but used glue instead of the heat and bond strips. I tried several different glues and ended with fabri-tac by beacon it was the only one that seamed to hold! I used the cheap mini blinds as opposed to the wooden slats, although the wooden probably would've worked a lot better it was $30+ per shade and I needed about 13 of them
seemed silly when I was disassembling them anyway!
The bathroom and bedroom area was done in nomadic desert which turned out too light so we took the can back to them and had them darken it. They said they added 200% of whatever to it which made it look like the next shade down on the paint sample (I believe it was latte). The bedroom slide out I wanted to be my "accent wall" and a deeper warmer color
I think if correct it was expressive plum we used, basically a dark rich color purple that had the right undertones to pair with nomadic desert!
I can't wait to see photos! Are you refinishing cabinets too? We considered it but had SOOO much of it it would've taken weeks to do! Plus like I said above I love them now with the new colors and hardware!
Maxturner- yes we painted right over the wallpapered walls (or whatever that stuff is) we just sanded the sheen off of it and used an oil based primer first (I had read to use that to help with prevention of mold/mildew) then followed with sherwin-williams emerald line (good for mildew as well)
P.S. Gigi- I've heard the window valances and lambroqueins (sp?) serve a purpose, as far as helping with the draft that our single pane windows leave us with. But I would rather wear a scarf in my house during that winter than look at our ugly old ones
