Slowly We Re-Enter This Century

The installation of the new flooring continues. It's slow tedious work in an RV that has no slide outs, due to the very tight working spaces. And really only one person can work effectively at a time like that. And, it's physically exhausting working in those cramped spots too! But soon my friends, soon it will be done.

In the meantime we completed a much easier reno project.  All those hideous brass cabinet handles are super shiny no more! Fast, easy, inexpensive fix that did a lot to bring the RV into the 21st century. Behold the handles before in all their 80's/90's glory.



We chose to spray paint them with Rustoleum Hammered Finish in dark bronze. Less than one can was more than enough to do the job. At about $7 for the can I consider that a fantastically economical RV upgrade!



Here they are all updated and back where they belong. Next up we'll apply the same technique to the brass light fixtures as well. Always another project waiting in the wings.  :)

    1. Thanks Mary! I'm not sure how convinced Karin was that they would look good. She's a believer now though! :)

    1. Sassy- The trick to spray painting is to keep the can moving constantly. I'm really not generally good with paint, but I can rock a spray can. :)
