I recently shared part one of my son Ryan’s RV reno. If you missed it you can see that here. Today I am sharing part 2 – Ryan’s RV Kitchen.
This is the before. Not too bad. Although he wasn’t thrilled with the dated wallpaper. The laminate counter top which was originally an almond color had faded to a pinkish tan. And the mini blinds had seen better days.
The stove and the vent hood were still an almond color, but Ryan’s was wanting a newer, cleaner look.
This was the view of the kitchen refrigerator, heater and storage area. And if you look closely on your left you will see the bathroom door is open so that you get a peek of his mini shower! Not much changed on this side as he liked to wood look.
Just about everything ,except the cabinet color, changed on the other side of the kitchen. First thing was demo. He removed the sink, the window treatments, the vent hood, and the stove.
Removed all of the caulk around the cabinets and walls.
The laminate received a couple of coats of a paint made especially to paint countertops.
The vent hood , stove top and oven door were thoroughly cleaned with a TSP de-glosser before painting.
We used Rust-Oleum White appliance paint for all of his appliances.
This is a TERRIBLE picture, but once the counter tops, the walls and the appliances were painted we installed a white vinyl, peel and stick backsplash in a mini subway tile pattern.
Here is the end result! So much better. All of his work gave it a cleaner, more modern feel.
We toyed with replacing the knobs on the cabinets, but decided not to. If it had been just a matter of replacing knobs it would definitely have been done. The existing ones had these weird back plates attached to them that had huge holes behind them. The doors would have had to be refinished or replaced to accommodate new knobs. That just wasn’t in the budget.
I made him new curtains for the window. We recovered the old cornice board and doubled the width of the curtains so that they would completely cover the window when closed. I think they turned out well.
I think this small kitchen turned out pretty great! All of his hard work made this formerly cute kitchen into a cleaner and more modern one.
I can’t wait to show you the bathroom and bedroom…
Until next time…..
