RV Renovation Progress Week 6

This past week was a whirlwind! We hosted a baby shower for Katie’s sister, had Easter Sunday, and my parents swung through for a couple of days. I would be lying if I didn’t say I was exhausted, regardless though we were able to work on a couple of RV reno projects.

Getting the Doghouse in the RV

I have been waiting for this moment for a long time. Our custom doghouse cover fought us tooth and nail, but this week we were able to slide it into position.

The trim along the bottom of the doghouse hasn’t been installed yet, mostly because we have a few more projects upfront we need to complete first. But, overall we are satisfied with the way it looks and functions in the space. We can’t wait to see the captain’s chairs next to it, which brings us to…

Changing the Look and Feel of the Captain’s Chairs

Before we had to focus on the events of the week we took a bit of time focusing on the captain’s chairs. We have settled on how we want them to look but are realizing the path to getting them there is a bit more difficult than imagined. So, we have been focusing on making sure we have the right technique and approach so we can finish them in the best way possible, and then share that with you. You can see a sneak peek below:

Lesson Learned

The biggest lesson I’ve learned so far with the RV renovation is that projects will likely take longer than expected. This is especially true when it’s something you’ve never attempted before.

This week we were able to look at our progress and realize that though we are not setting any world records for the fastest renovation, we are making progress and are confident in the work we have completed.

If you are struggling with a renovation or a specific DIY project, just know that we’ve been there. The key for us has always been to keep pushing, keep learning, and most importantly continue moving forward. You’ve gotta start somewhere, right?

That about wraps it up for RV renovation progress week 6. If you have any questions or comments feel free to leave them below. And if you are doing your own RV renovation, or are planning one for the future we would love to hear about it.
