Share them, by all means - the Fly and I will try to do the same, and maybe some others will, too!

We bought a 2002 Play Mor Toy Hauler a few years back. The interior was decked out in black and white flag but we are ATVer's so we had to modify that.

before


After



================================================== =


Then, if you look at the bathroom their wasn't much room in there to go potty, with that sink, not to mention there is a shower in there. You would brush your teeth and get goosed by the door knob.

Before


After


and



===============================================

The next project at hand was the bed in the camper, in this toy hauler you had to sleep on the couches or what ever they call them which meant their was not sleeping with my wife their was a 10 inch gap between us. Was okay at 1st then I got to missing her. We saw a fold up queen bed in another camper and I asked if I could have that added to mine and I about died when the dealership gave me the price, so I bought the RV parts for him for $50 (including the mattress) and went to Lowes for the lumber and....

Ready for bed


Ready to load the toys


The cream colored square was a piece of foam I had to ad insulation to that door that goes outside.

Nice job on the redo! (Glad I'm not the only one unhappy with the status quo!)

This next little project was my wife's idea to keep me active during the winter months... that will be the last time I listen to her!!!

It was just going to be a small project, new vanity, toilet, shower door, updated light fixture, new flooring and some paint...

Was just going to strip all the old wall covering off that went 1/2 up the walls and put in a new shower surround and door




new Toilet


Then the project grew

we ended up gutting the entire room sheet rock and all, found the wall to have no insulation, it was built in 1966, I thought they knew about insulation then.



So since the walls are out and the tub, that was a TRICK!!!
We decided for a neo angle shower, the other bathroom has a tub.





So to make a long story shorter, new sheet rock and everything new.

Now you all know more about me than you care to have ever known!

Gosh, I like somebody who's not happy with whatever is on the shelf - that light says it all, and the in-progress pics were great - what about it, Mcfly?
It is great to be able to picture something in your mind and make it turn out so that it almost resembles what you thought of.

We had to do about the same thing with our whole house - wish we'd taken the "in progress" photos like you did! Just before & after misses a lot.
