On this week’s show I’m talking about DIY projects for your RV. Whether you own a newer model RV that you would like to personalize or a vintage trailer that you want to refresh, there are simple and inexpensive ways to make your home away from home cozy and inviting. Here are a few of my favorite projects.
WALLS – You can bring light and a sense of space to your trailer by wallpapering, painting or using vinyl cut outs.
WINDOW TREATMENTS- A simple way to add a personal feel to your trailer is to change the window treatments. If the trailer is newer chances are it came with a cornice covered with an industrial styled fabric of brown swooshes with mini blinds behind it!! We can do better than that!
MESSAGE BOARDS – Adding a DIY message board is a good afternoon project that doesn’t take a lot of time or money. Chances are you probably have all you need to make one in your house. An old cookie sheet, a painted tray or a few Dollar Store metal serving trays can become great message boards. I hang mine with 3M Command strips.
CABINETS – Changing your trailer cabinets can help get rid of the cookie cutter look of most new RV’s and create a more “home” vibe. I painted the cabinets in almost every vintage trailer I’ve ever owned. New hardware also adds a personal touch.
BATHROOM UPGRADES – I recently ordered a teak bath mat for my Max wet bath. It will sit away from the drain an inch or two and allow me to drop the towel without getting it all wet. I also think I will love the warmth it adds to an all white bathroom. Another plus in wet bath design is a bunch of spring rods to hang towels, shower curtains and when doubled one in front of the other as a handy shelf for shampoo and conditioner.
