Remodeled instead of Upgrading!

We decided, after looking at many new units and realizing we loved our current floorplan, to remodel to get what we wanted instead of upgrading.

We needed to do something to tone down the REALLY dark wood...was beautiful when we first got it, but gets "old" after living in it for three years. We changed out the island lighting and antiqued the kitchen island. Installed a residential fridge and new micowave/convection oven, both in stainless steel.

We also added a brighter wall paper to the rear accent wall which was also very dark. Ripped out the carpet and dark kitchen floor and used a vinyl plank flooring all the way through the living area....makes everything much brighter and really changed the look and feel of the Key Largo.

The first two pics are of what she looked like when we first got her...the rest show the changes we made. :D

I really like the flooring. Definitely snaps up the interior!
Can you still remove the fireplace for maintenance or repair without damaging the smart-tiles?

That looks amazing! I'm living in my RV as well, and feel as though maybe the neutral colors are getting to me psychologically...you're an inspiration :)

We would gladly "talk" you through it...LOL!! Getting too old for doing this....if our son hadn't helped with the floor, we'd have been at it still...:D

Do you have the Bordeux wood too?

When we bought our 2013 Bordeux was the only option. I loved it! reminded me of my kitchen at home...didn't stop to think how that dark wood EVERYWHERE would feel after a while....;)

Great job. I'm just tired thinking about all that work. T'would appear you had a nice inside facility to work in. That's a plus right there.

Enjoy the fruits of your labor!:angel:

What paint did you use for the center island? I love how much that brightened it up and would like to do mine...

I used Valspar's Chalk Paint (tinted kid glove), two coats. Then one coat of the Valspar sealing wax, and one coat of the antiquing wax...
