We used the Rustoleum product on all our (rust brown) laminate
and we're quite pleased so far. We did NOT use it on the galley countertop.

Put it on with a good quality brush and leave it to cure just as many days as you possibly can before touching it.

It will chip and dent when new, but it covers well in one coat and has a nice smooth surface (consistent with the amount of care used in applying it).

Question about the stainless contact paper; is that a single piece on the lower door? I'm contemplating using the copper color on mine, but its only 12" wide, and I'm afraid it will look cheesy if its not one piece.

Stainless Steel contact paper

The paper I used is 35 1/4 " X 66" and I did not have any seams. I do not think it would look very professional if there was a seam. I looked high and low to find paper this wide as most are 18". The website I found it is qcidirect.com. when I bought it, it was on sale with $60% off. Just checked and it is full price now ($36.99 per roll) I believe still worth the price.

Laundry - Stainless Steel PVC Contact Paper - Only $36.99

You'd never think that it looked that good.

Update on Kitchen counter top

We finished the coating on the counter top. The Rustoleum product is a dream. Bob rolled it on with a foam roller and one coat did the trick. We used the same product for both kitchen and bathroom and still have plenty left to do 20 more counter tops. 1 qt is only $20. Our flooring will be installed on Tuesday. We purchased the "Flexitec" and decided to "sub" the job out to a local fellow who said he would install that as well as the bedroom carpet (Charcoal gray) for $150. Sometimes it is just easier to leave it to the the "professionals". Things are moving along smoothly for us and once the flooring is in we can start moving our furniture in. We should be right on target to start our adventure March 18. More pics to come as we complete each project.

Awesome job! I can't wait to see the finished RV. ....I bet you can't either! LOL Did you remove the wallpaper before you painted? If you did, did it leave any film on the wall?

By the way, my wife will be in the area week after next. Would you mind a short drop by if we have time to see that RV?

We are also renovating, if you look in the RV2 classifieds I have a sofa for sale and a table with chairs. We have been looking at Karndean Flooring , that is the produce Classic Coach Renovates use. It is flexible and the glue is flexible also. We are going today to look at more flooring, but I was told to check for flexablity. We also have to be concerned because we have 2 slides that can get damaged from the rollers. Do you have a slide.

No slide here. As stated we will be using a flooring product called Flexitech and I will let you know more after it is installed tomorrow. We are building a desk/office area across from our sofa that I will be using during our travels since we will be working everyday. The only difference from now is that I will have a different view from my "office window" and I can't wait. We get more and more excited as the day gets closer. The only RVing we have done is one night when we bought this RV so we are nervous and excited at the same time.
