RV Stands for Reno-Vation!

One of the best ideas my Dad and I had was to turn the closet into a bookshelf thus expanding the closet in the bathroom because they were only separated by a thin wall!  I’ll add pictures of the bathroom closet when I clean it:)

Obviously the pink counter tops had to go so I sanded them and painted over them with a non toxic chalkboard paint I ordered from Home Depot.  I will have to touch them up because I didn’t do a good job sanding, but for $30 they look great!

When I bought the RV my Dad and I didn’t know how extensive the dry rot was above the cab.  We ripped out as much as we could and there is still dry rot but it’s not worth fixing because we would have to rip out the entire bed area and rebuild.  So my lovely dad built a steel frame and put in a new platform for the bed and we repainted it with Kilz which will keep it from rotting further and will prevent mold from growing.  My next step is to buy a wool mattress which is ideal is many ways, but wool is great because it is mildew resistant!

Author: Action is Eloquence

I live in Grants Pass, Oregon with my wonderful husband and am in the process of re-imagining a new life for myself! I just moved from Portland where I spent the last 11 years on a metaphorical runway and now am ready to take off. College, a marriage, several customer service jobs, death, fear and shyness were all teachers, but it's time for me to take what I learned and use my talents to make a better life for myself and give back to the community. I have a passion for helping people remember their relationship with nature. I went to Portland State University where I earned my Masters in Educational Leadership and Policy with a specialization in Sustainability Education. I enjoy blogging because it is a way for me to help others regain this relationship and learn how to care for the Earth by living more simply and mindfully. Traditional cooking, natural building, living simply, permaculture and ecopsychology are my favorite subjects and I have a new obsession with eating bugs as a way to help live a more sustainable life. I only appear quiet and reserved until someone gets me going any of these topics!
