My Renovations

After months of work, I have finally finished renovations to my 88/89 HR Imperial. Took me a lot longer than it should have due to arthritis in my lower back and neck, but I'm FINISHED!

I painted the interior end to end. A kind of ocean blue. My counter top is the color of wet sand, so I picked a tile for the backslpash that resembles the shell fragments and pebbles at the edge of the
wave as it washes up on the sand.

I built a small nightstand for the bedroom and a small bookrack and attached it to the closet wall.

I took out the inoperable icemaker and replaced it with an open cabinet w/sliding shelf. The shelf holds a portable icemaker.

Next, out with the old in-dash tv. Replaced it with a cabinet with one small drawer inside and a rack on the outside for cellphones, etc. Hole in the back of the rack for phone charger cord that plugs into the old tv's receptacle.

The last thing was replacing the Dometic fridge with an Avanti residential model. It was almost a perfect fit but I still had to add some trim to fill it out. I put in some eyebolts so I could secure the doors while moving.

Nice job. I don't have the carpenter skills like you so I had a shop do mine.

Well done, now all you need to do is enjoy,,,,
