How about installing a padded headboard that matches your new decor, over the screw scars ?
Most RV maunufactures install the cabinets from the outside, before the outer skin goes on, so that is probably why that cabinet was so hard to remove without scarring up the wall. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
How right you are about the bedside table/cabinet being installed from the outside... and I must say VERY well installed.
My husband wore out or broke several hacksaws getting the dozen screws sawed in two. At one point he said "I think it would be easier to take the outer skin off." Of course he wasn't serious just a bit frustrated.
Thanks for the suggestion, I have thought about a padded headboard and still might do that. Finding the perfect
material may be challenging but I think I can make it pretty easily. I have seen it done on home improvement shows. LOL
I am still considering how it will look since we think we are going to put the bed in "sideways" and the wall board is damaged on what will become the side rather than the head of the bed. I hope that makes sense... you would have to see the way the bedroom is configured to know that we have more width than length for the bed and since we are going with a regular bed instead of an RV sized one. Since a real bed is longer than the twins it had in it, we think we will need to put it in sideways.
I am headed to the craft store today and for now I am going to touch it up and try to duplicate the sponged effect. If that doesn't work well enough to keep it that way I will be hunting for material.
