remodel before and after

About half finished with the remodel on my 1988 Terry Reserve TT. It's amazing how a little oil based paint can update an interior. The shown sofa will be replaced with a daybed in the next few weeks, sofa still looks good but I have spring bruises from last weeks trip. Also still need to fix the fridge area. I want to build in the residential fridge and install the microwave (currently inside a cabinet) above it.

That's actually Cricket on the pillow, Chico's almost 17, he rarely leaves his bed on the floor. Gable was named after an actor, you might have heard of him? He's a real southern gentleman.

Wow! WHat a difference! I saw the picture of the interior on your other thread and was quite impressed!

I have a question for you. I see you painted your cabinet below the sink. Is it ok to paint over the fake wood paneling or do you rip that off first? Im going to be painting in my camper and need some ideas.

Thanks for the compliments. I painted right over the paneling using a good oil based paint. If your paneling is shiny, you might want to scuff it a bit. I used a 4 inch foam roller on the walls and cabinets and a small brush for trim. No brush marks at all, a neighbor though I'd spray painted. Seems to be holding up well. Took all the hardware off and sprayed it. I think that made the most difference. I stuck the screws in a styrofoam cooler lid to paint them.
