This week on The Roads We Roam Are you ready to see our fixer-upper?
Come inside and I’ll show you around! Before, there were dated valances…
yellowed and broken blinds and wood colored cabinets. We wanted a fresh, clean look, so we painted the cabinets a really fun teal color, ripped out the
valances and updated all the blinds on the walls. We used a peel & stick shiplap
wallpaper to tie it all together. Moving on down the hallway, which was before… a very dark area, we painted all the cabinets and the fridge a bright white
color to brighten it all up – it took about three coats using this Nuvo
cabinet paint kit. Onto the main living area…. originally there was a dinette with
two benches and two sofas in the living-room area and a twenty-year-old,
very green carpet. We needed to address our need for more space and create a
work area, so the first step was to pull everything out and update the flooring.
We chose a laminate flooring that we were able to install ourselves in just
one day! We built the custom bench along one wall that provides a lot of storage.
In addition to plenty of seating we went for a fun beachy vibe in the living area
and incorporated a blue fabric weave peel and stick wallpaper for all of the
walls. We continued to paint all the cabinets white and added in fun prints
on the walls and the pillows. One of our favorite features is a dedicated dog
station. This cabinet stores all of their accessories, food and bowls. Where one of the sofas used to be, we now have Russ’s workstation as
well as a very nice large trash bin. When we are ready to eat or in need of more space to spread out and work, we have a folding table that we can quickly set up and
seat up to six people if needed. We want to know what you think…. please leave a
comment below and if you have any questions about any of the products that
we used we have them all in the description. Feel free to get a hold of us
at any time at www.theroadsweroam.com Russ and I would like to give a big
thank you to this week’s super chat donors…..
