Wow. Looks fabulous. What are you going to do now, except show it off of course. Fun projects that give tremendous satisfactions.

We did the same thing to our 76' Southwind back in the late 80s, worked great and looked almost as nice as y'alls.

This old girl is our full-time rig; or will be in a few more weeks, once we get some last minutes things taken care of and drive down our driveway for the last time...

RV Remodels

Really nice updates. We're new fulltimers too and we got an "older girl" for our first RV too. The first thing we did, even before we hit the road was to update our girl. My dad always used to say "a little lipstick and paint makes a lady what she aint".

We did everything from paint, to tile, to new furniture, artwork, window coverings, etc -- all with a beachy feeling.

Here's a sneak peak at the new kitchen...



If you want to see more of what we did, check our our RV REMODELS.

I was thrilled to see the chandelier. I have a blown glass one I picked up in Venice and it is the only thing I want to keep when we go full time.

Loved looking at the pics.

By the way Senior Chief, I love your quote "Life rocks when your house rolls".

Lesli- love your remodel! That serene seashore/beach theme is wonderful. Much more integrated than ours, which was largely fueled by "fixed this, now THAT looks ugly; now what?" sort of progression.

I swore when we get our ultimate bus (an actual bus conversion- maybe a late 50s early 60 Silver Eagle or GMC-no problems with carrying capacity; that's a couple years down the road) I want glass tile EVERYWHERE; the depth of the light in the tile is so striking

We had a little campground sign made up with our Life Rocks thing;

Senior Chief -- you're a funny guy! "fixed this, now THAT looks ugly; now what?" I'll bet yours looked wonderful!

Thanks for the compliments -- it's my first RV remodel so I appreciate your kind words. I agree about the glass tile. It really make our backsplash wonderful and I also used it at the base of the toilet (we don't stand on it). The pictures don't do it justice because you can't see the reflective quality in my images. Oh well.

I L-O-V-E the little sign you had made. Is it engraved in wood? Where do you have it? Love it!!

Lesli,

Love your photos and description. Looks like your beauty has/had the same bright brass fixtures and teal carpet that our 1998 Alumascape had. We're almost done with our remodel.

Your web site is very nice. Enjoyed reading the post about your remodel.

I'm almost tempted to paint our walls but our wallpaper isn't very "loud" and my SO says that he's not lifting a finger to paint.

Stunning! Just wonderful! If our old '79 looks half that good when it's done, I'll be thrilled!
