I LOVE our 2018 Pioneer BH 175 but it was BROWN from top to bottom. I couldn't believe there were no color options available, not even white. So I bought the floorplan that works best for us and started to de-brown it bit by bit. I started by taking out the cornice board, curtains and cushions. I recovered the cushions, made new valances and covered the cornice board in fabric. I kept all that inside the house while I sanded all the woodwork (just enough to 'score' it), primed it and painted it semigloss white. Then I painted the walls and ceiling. The finishing touches were an accent headboard made from reclaimed river wood from a company called Timberchic in Maine. The boards are very think peel and stick that can be cut down to size with a hand saw. I also added a peel and stick backsplash made by Smart Tiles and sold at Lowes. Painted the fridge door with chalk paint, took down the track shower curtain and put up a chrome tension rod instead, mounted a TV and bought some cute bedding at Target. I can't believe how much brighter, cleaner, cozier it feels. LOVE it!!!!!
