Nomad makeover part 2

April 10, 2018

Well, we've put in many many hours of work into the Nomad over the past few weeks.  Hours that were spent in a camper with a broken furnace in thirty degree winter weather. Seriously, did Spring give up on us? Have we been forgotten?

 

Anyways, here's what we've done so far:

  • Painted everything (check out the last post!)

  • Put in new flooring

  • 2 new light fixtures

  • New window treatments

  • New decor

 

It looks a like a new camper!  In part 3 of the makeover, we're going to (hopefully) replace the furnace, recover the dinette cushions and add trim around the seams of the flooring.  

 

Some things I've learned along the way:

  • Small spaces can seem really big when you're tasked with painting them

  • Putting in vinyl flooring in a camper with one sheet of faux wood vinyl was the pits! But overall it turned out ok.  I think next time we'd choose the peel and stick sections of faux wood planks over the large sheet.  Ooftah!

  • Electrical work is not our forte.  We still have some kinks to figure out with our fixtures, but we're gonna call in the experts on this one!

  • Blinds are super easy to put in! I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was!

  • I can do more in frigid temps than I thought would be possible--our make-shift warmth was was lighting the stove burners to generate heat.

  • Whoever invented popcorn wallpaper and ceiling sheets is ridiculous.   Like, for real. We aren't even about to tackle those yet.

  • I would and probably will totally do another renovation again--likely with a newer camper in the future and maybe more of an overhaul for customization!  I'm more handy than I thought!

 

Here are some pictures from round 2!

 Finished Product!

 Electrical wiring from the 60's is the worst!

 

 Look at those blinds!
