I finished the other chair and just set them in the motorhome to get them out of the way. The teal colors are going to pick up the color in the tile, will get some good pics when all done.

I also painted with some stuff for wood over the bedroom window. This is a different camera I'm using, couldn't find my charger for the other one and this one is more complicated. Good pic of the kitchen area, I took 4 or 5 of the bedroom repair area, lights on and off and none came out very good so finally just picked one.

Sadly I should never have used the contact cement, the thin slice of veneer would have just pulled off, I ended up having to dig the stuck areas out and made gouges, dang. But at times you think you are doing the right thing, then find you aren't. Tom says its so shallow and is smooth I could just wallpaper over but I don't think so. We are going to Lowe's Monday and see if we can find something real thin to fill it in with before I wallpaper. I painted it with some wood stuff that will help whatever to adhere better.

I like the chairs colors and the craftsmanship they show.

There will be many types of wood fillers available to fill the area in question. I would get one that has a thin consistency so you can apply in thin layers. Less sanding to smooth it out.

I remember one time wallpapering an area in an old house. It had rough walls and I found something called wallpaper liner. It covered up many sins in a wall and they even use it over paneling. I think I will take some drywall compound and fill the gouges and sand, then glue this liner over it.
As my husband says the only line you could have is where I cut it on both
sides, its such a thin piece that was taken out I'm not sure the liner plus wallpaper won't bring it up even.

They may have it at Sherwin Williams, I will check otherwise can order online, and its not expensive but also prepasted.


It looked awful up there before, should have taken a picture, the top layer of veneer had been wet and loose and had bulges in places. I was almost afraid to touch it, I honestly thought the wall might be rotted out, if so then you would be talking about a big repair, thank goodness it wasn't, whew! Tom said he thinks some of it is just age and condensation causing it to loosen the glue, but I said if that were true then what's in the bathroom should all be loose and everywhere else. No there had been a leak there way back when.

I used rubbing compound and got 98% of the glue residue off driver's side of the old girl

I have not researched this, but do any of you know if I could get a retractable hose reel for my power cord. If its cool trying to pull that 50 amp cord up through the hole in the floor and winding it up is quite a chore. I could leave the door open and pull it out but lets in cold air I would think. Anyone done this on one of these old coaches. Would be great for the water hose also.

PatStab,
Yes, they make the electric and manual reels for both the electric cord and the water hose. We have theym on both the 5er and the coach, they were installed at the factory. Do a search for RV hose reels, and you will find the info that you are looking for.

If your going to wall paper over the marks get a small tub of Joint compound for sheetrock and a trowel and smooth it in .

Tom, has a 5 gallon bucket of it, he is working on a house now. We built a new house once and I learned to finish drywall by starting in the closets, I did over half of it, I would never make a professional at that. So yes I can do that.

I just priced those reels $600!! I think I can roll a lot of cord for that, maybe I can get one at a salvage yard, same for hose reel.

For some reason and I haven't done much of anything yesterday I am
seriously down in my back today, I think its the weather. I took acetaminophen, tramadol, and arthrotec, finally just put on my back brace.
I have a chiro apt this week, but I hate it when this happens, its a spot
between my shoulder blades in my spine and it grabs all my ribs when it
happens. Just not fun. Its been that way for many a year so not just old age. I have walked around a table before and bumped my hip and thrown my back out. Yet I've lifted 80 pound bags of fertilizer for the yard and nothing, just no rhyme or reason to it.

Spilt a pot of spaghetti sauce all over the top of my stove.

Tasted pretty good for dinner though...
Merry Christmas,
Tim

I started her up just to listen to her and switch from main tank to auxiliary and back a few times. I want to keep those relays working after not being used for so long. I also painted the rear wheel wells first coat need to pull the wheels off to finish . Finished repairing the hole in the black water tank. I'll give it 48 hours and check and make sure it worked.
