Simple RV Decor

simpleWe just had a great weekend.  We mostly stayed off our phones and just spent time with our kids. We did something for this Father’s Day weekend that we do a lot and that is camping.

I LOVE watching all the trailer reno videos on You Tube.  You Tube is something I just started doing with an addition to my blog.  Go on over and read my You Tube Announcement!

We all need breaks.  I talk about that over here on the blog and share my views on this often.  Rest is so important.

Simple RV Decor

Something super restful for me to do is making home decor. When it comes to our trailer, I would love to re-do it, but that’s not a project we are into doing. So to help make some personal touches I added some DIY decor.

1: Upcycled Basket

This required some minimal sewing skills. I repurposed an old pillow case for this.  Plus spray painted an ice cream container.  Our little bathroom in the trailer has some storage.  Just nice to have some things easy to grab and in a cute basket.

The full video on how I made it is below.

2: Faux Drying Lavender

I had fun with this one.  I just cut off a pick of lavender I had from the dollar store and then took twine and hot glued it together on the back.

I used command hocks to install it in the trailer. Easy to remove and doesn’t leave a mark behind.

Full video on how I made it below.

3: Welcome Sign – FREE Printable

I made this sign and was super happy how it turned out.

It says “Welcome to our cabin (on wheels)”

I also painted the pot for the little faux greenery white, used to be black.

Since this blog post is full of simple decor ideas.  I made it a FREE printable.

Something we love having for our family.

 

Travel Trailer Tour

Camping and Holiday season has arrived for our family.  This is one of our favorite family things to do is go camping. It would be great for our 10 year anniversary to go on a nice holiday somewhere hot BUT this has a lot of potential for many family memories and future getaways with my husband.

Here’s a little tour.

Dining Table/Bed

We were excited to find a used trailer that has a slide to it.  It only moves a foot but that still makes a big difference.

Couch (becomes a bed) and kitchen are the slide. The door in the back is the bathroom.

Our bathroom is in the back of the trailer with a big storage compartment. It’s hard to take a picture of. This next picture is the best I can get. I’m saving the best part of the trailer for last. Keep reading.

The neat thing is the tub is deep (great for bathing kids) and has a swivel shower curtain.

I’m excited to share the last part of the trailer. The bedroom, is at the front. Someone installed a curtain as a separation to the rest of the trailer. I wasn’t going camping on our first trip with the “grandma curtains”, so this trailer already has had it’s first DIY. I’m super cheap and used what I had on hand.  I made curtains from old bed sheets.

Here’s a before and after.

I made the curtains longer and out of an old white bed sheet set.

Looking forward to our first adventure with our “Cabin on Wheels”.  Have a great and safe  May Long weekend.
