Van Go

We're getting our van ready for another road trip.
We're driving to Texas for our granddaughter's high school graduation.
We've done a little remodeling in our Roadtrek van.
 We stained a small wood closet dowel
and installed it for a privacy curtain.
I used a natural shower curtain folded in half and attached with shower hooks.
It's tied back with a ribbon that's hooked on to a small cup hook.
Here's the salvaged kitchen cabinet  from my 
previous post that we repurposed for the van.
It fits perfectly and gives us lots of extra storage and counter space.
All the comforts of home while driving!
We added a trim all around the edge of the counter.
This will prevent items from sliding off.
It's great to have extra prep space and a spot for a toaster oven.
The Longaberger small purse holds a coffee canister and filters.
The drawers needed latches installed 
so that they wouldn't open on the drive.
I thought that beadboard would look good on the side. 
We had some leftover in the garage. 
Larry installed "wood" floors. (laminate form HD)
It looks so much better.
The spot between the front seats is reserved for the doggies.
Their doggie bed fits perfectly there.
 They can't wait!

  8. Hi Rita, What a fun way to travel! We had an RV growing up and spent a lot of great vacations in it. You have done a lot of work and the results are wonderful. Enjoy the trip and thank you for joining my party.

  9. Love everything!! Looks so nice and functional. We just purchased a RT and I would love to change the curtains. Yours look super nice. Did you use glide tape and make them?
