When we purchased our motor home seven months ago, we were grateful to find one in our price range…CHEAP…that was mechanically sound and something we weren’t embarrassed to drive down the road. With that said, there were still a few aspects of the camper that I knew from day one that I would change if ever given the chance…meaning if I could somehow manage to talk my husband into the work and expense that doing so would entail.
Talking my husband into any major changes is a difficult feat. Not that he isn’t open to making those changes but let’s just say that in the past I have had a tendency to…ummm…frequently change my mind when it comes to decorating. Southwestern, County, Traditional and Shabby Chic, you name it, I’ve decorated accordingly. I used to love watching all the design shows on TLC and HGTV. I’ve even taken Interior Design classes that I loved; so to say that I found a few things in the camper that I wanted to change is not out of character for me. I would have found things in a brand new camper that I wanted to change. After all, this is our home, shouldn’t the decor reflect that?
Well, the late eighties, early nineties interior of our camper did not reflect us. Imagine. Pink. Everywhere. Carpet. Furniture. Tile. Pink…or…to be more exact…mauve….Yikes! It had to go and I couldn’t wait for that day to come.
Well, last week, my husband and I had a date…to Home Depot…I know, we won’t win any awards for the most romantic date idea, but he’s a contractor, what can I say? Anyway, while we were shopping, we ran across some flooring that we really liked so we bought a couple boxes and began our project.
