5th wheel redo.

                                          The head board was made by our friend Kent.

 I covered the valances with deer fabric. The curtains are a pine needle and pine cones print.
                         The bear was made by our friend Kent. I have a house full of his work.
            We added a outdoor image to the mirrored closet. That my daughter draw for me.
                                 Added tin to the back of the wall.  Plus got  new stove cover.
   Covered the valances with the same fabric I used for the curtains. Added lace curtains.

                                                      I love the way it turned out.
 I really like the decorated wood pieces we added. The items on the top shelf never come down. ( except the clock). We used quack stopper to hold it. Believe me they won't move.
   We got all our wood pieces at Home Depot. Stained them, then wood glued them on.
 We removed the cup holder that was on the wall and added a lamp table. The ottoman also works for storage.

 We took down the valances and replaced them with curtains. Added a new sofa cover and  pillows. My husband also made a small shelf behind the sofa for me to set my coffee on. Next is a mini coffee table.


 We are still waiting on the chairs. Kent is making new center sections  for our chairs. They will be similar to the head board in the bedroom. Only made from wood instead of metal.
 Had to change out our TV for a smaller one. we were not able to run the bigger one off the battery. We do a lot of dry camping.
 Added shelves to the side windows. I liked the look and they also support the day and night blinds.
We tore up the carpet and added new flooring. So much easier to clean.  As you can see, we take Cleo camping with us. She is our camping kitty. Next time is the dogs turn.
I am so happy with the way everything turned out.   My home away from home.

    1. I like my table and chairs too. We didn't want a bench set. It is spacious, till we take two big dogs. They love to take up as much room as possible.

  10. Can you tell me how to take off the valances? I cannot see how to unfasten them? I hate what came with the camper and would love to do what you did.
