Step Two: Painting the Interior

Welcome, Friends!  This is step two of my RV overhaul.  When I chose the colors for the interior, I really wanted to have a vintage-meets-modern feel.  I also wanted a pop of color in a fun shade. Both colors I chose are Valspar paints from Lowe's.  To alleviate the amount of work, choosing a paint with primer already mixed in is a sure-fire way to go.   For the walls, I opted for a light shade of blue reminiscent of the soda shops of the early doo-wop era.

I wanted the seating to stand out, so for the cushions, I chose a very bright sunshine yellow.

I wanted the window treatments to be a direct contrast to the paint and really stand out. To accomplish that look, I chose a vivid black and white damask pattern. Fabric, Walmart. 

Here are a couple of photos of my walls and window treatments before I went to work. 

I didn't remove the existing paper, instead opting to paint directly over it. I used a very thin angular brush. If you choose a brush like this with stiff bristle hair, and use a very steady hand, you won't need to tape most areas beforehand. 

Remove hardware from walls, paint, and replace. 

Here are my walls, completed. I will post as I continue to progress. Thank you!
