And now the never ending Projects begin

We have never been really big on ‘decorating’ for decorating sake. It has always made more sense to be practical, clean, comfortable, and for me, uncluttered. That’s not to say we don’t appreciate nice and pleasant surroundings. So. what are the implications of full time RV living on our indoor surroundings? As I look at my first post I see I indicated a neutral decor as a criteria.
Who chooses the fabrics in these RV’s, they certainly don’t seem to have the full-timer in mind. Most of them look like a tropical or safari vacation. Not what I want to look at day after day. Where am I’m going with this is straight to our first DIY RV project, as the interior window treatments and dining chairs have a safari AND tropical palm tree effect, blended to a dark, dank atmosphere. Choose a fabric wisely, get a staple gun and medium staples, magnetic screw driver (preferably power driven) and off you go. The change, while not dramatic, gave me some sense that I have control over how our home is going to look day-to-day. The real challenge is coming; organizing and fitting it all in without being cluttered!
