I'm back to share with you more about our RV renovations! In case you missed it, we bought an RV, and we started renovating it for a cross country trip that we are doing this summer! In case you're new here, here's a look at our rig all hitched up with our truck! Part of me wants to repaint the exterior of the 5th wheel but dear mercy, I do adore those little faded 90's painting style swooshes and mountains! They remind me of those old learn to paint shows. Did anyone ever watch those? There was a guy with crazy curly hair that always painted mountain landscapes I used to watch as a kid. Does anyone remember him?!?! (Edited to add... I totally googled and found him! His name was Bob Ross! Please tell me someone else watched him as a kid?!)
22 Minute Hard Corps. Taping off an RV before painting it is a close second though. I digress... I bought a paint and primer in one and painted everything by hand with the brush you see here (because I read online that rollers didn't cover as well). It did take me two coats but the second coat went on quick! I even used the old cornflower blue curtains as drop cloths. Because I'm resourceful. Ha!
oil rubbed bronze flushmount lights from Pottery Barn to take their place...
12v LED bulbs (we got these ones in "warm white") in them and drilling a tiny hold in the side for the on/off switch and then doing a quick wiring tweak where we took the hot wire and wired it into the switch and put the switch into the side of the bowl of the fixture. Nate took the lead on this with the help of my father in law and I'm so glad they were able to figure it out because I would have had no clue how to do it! My heroes!
