Inside redo

We have a 2004 arctic fox 990, owned since new. We've been thinking about sprucing up the inside, some of the wallpaper is coming unglued around some of the edges. Maybe a backsplash around the sink in the kitchen and bathroom? Anyone done any of these things?

We Had the same problem with wallpaper. We just pealed some off in the kitchen using a hair dryer to heat up the paper. After it was off, we painted the wall. Came out pretty good. We will see how it holds up when flexing during travels

We painted the walls , new vinyl plank flooring , new back splash , door and cabinet hardware , LED lighting , window valances , reupholstered dinette cushions and barrel chair , updated stereo and TV , new cab area factory carpet and floor mats , replaced mattress and galley and bathroom fixtures .

Wow , what a difference .

All the work except the upholstery was D.I.Y.

Researched all the work on YouTube . It was a real help on the painting over the wall paper . The video explained the best prep and primer to use which allowed using the paint of your choice.

The entire process took 2 months during early Spring a few years ago . Everything has held up well , still looks like a new coach inside.

The end result was well worth the effort.
