Talking about Living the RV Life



We’re famous!

Well, not really.  smile emoticon

But we are very honored that we got to tell our story to Bobby & Sue of the Living the RV Life podcast and share it with all of their listeners.

It was such a treat, chatting with them about their plans to head out on the road, dishing on our experiences over the first four months of our motorhoming escapade.  Thanks, Bobby & Sue!

RV Remodel: a lampshade redo



Buying a 14-year-old RV means that you’re going to be redoing a lot of stuff.  I started with the bedroom lampshades.  They were blah and dirty.  I picked up a couple of self-adhesive lampshades and covered them in turquoise tone-on-tone scrolly print fabric I’d bought to use in various spots throughout the rig.  The lampshades come with templates, so it’s pretty easy to cut the fabric to size and then smooth it onto the shade.  I used fabric glue to attach funky apple green trim, which was embellished with multi colored beads, to the top and bottom of each shade. Easy peasy!

A tip: Make sure the lampshade matches the light bulb fitting of your lights.
