1990 25' Excella rear twin to full conversion
I am the new owner of a 1990 Excella that is pretty heavily optioned. It is in very good condition and I am happy to have it. The PO had started a rear bedroom conversion from twins to side-mounted full. Anyone done this? Any pointers?
So far all I've done is clean up and spruce up. I did paint the LR plastic end cap with Plasticote, washed curtains and put new material on the valances on LR windows (as well as the radiused triangle at the end of the kitchen cabinet). There is hideous original floral outline wallpaper (vinyl) design that looks like bad taste threw up all over the bathroom that has to go. This bathroom has too many medicine cabinets and mirrors, also, with almost no clear wall space making it feel claustrophobically busy. That may be because there is also a (porportionally) huge window in the bathroom. I do like that.
I am planning to put grasscloth over the dark paneled wall facing the LR (wall opposite the central bath)to further brighten things up a bit. I like the quality wood finish on the cabinetry but am not crazy about large expanses of paneling darkening up the space. Maybe I should continue the grasscloth theme through the kitchen and bathroom. It seems a little more masculine, neutral and a little less 'fru-fru'. I want my shower a solid color, though... no prints. Paint over the vinyl? What do you think? Yes, I know to keep it caulked.. its vinyl wallpaper over lauan plywood, and with a potential to contact water. I'll include pics when I get the grasscloth up.
Your ideas and helpful hints are appreciated.
