The Adventure Bus is Nearly Done

Tracey, owner of Opal Interiors, is a fellow business person here in The Bay. When we called her about helping decorate The Adventure Bus she was a little hesitant but after coming for a look she decided to take the project on, despite our very limited budget. A brave woman. Or, maybe she felt sorry for me.

We think Tracey did a great job of creating a comfortable environment for both of us and still accommodating the needs of a home on wheels.

The interior is nearly complete, except the bedroom. Still no mattress, but that is another blog post. Supposedly it will be here by June 2. So here are some before and after photos.

You can enlarge the photos for a better view by left clicking on them.

The main feature here is new curtains and valence around the window. It doesn't show up well here so here is a picture of the drapes.
Next is the sofa:
We decided not to replace the sofa for now so simply purchased a slip cover from Walmart and Tracey had her sewer make some toss pillows to match the fabrics used in the rest of the motorhome.

The dining area:
We decided to take only two of the four chairs with us and use folding chairs when we have guests. That way we have room for a side table for the recliner chair. The dining chairs are covered with the same fabric as the valences.

The kitchen:
Don't you love the new backsplash. Arch and I installed it together.

The bathroom:
I love the wallpaper -  you can only see it reflected in the mirror here so here is another picture:

A big thanks to Tracey for all the great advice and to our friends Norman and Susan for the great job installing the wallpaper.

Now Arch is busy working on the outside. We are ordering an new awning and he is planning to paint the front and the basement doors.
