Keystone Cougar RV Dinette Renovation

The dinette area in an RV is a great place to start a renovation if you're looking for something simple to tackle. One of the easiest things your can do to make your RV look more custom is to take out one or both of the dinette benches and replace them with chairs. Of course, this option only works if you don't plan to use the dinette as a sleeping space. But if you just plan to eat here, it's a great upgrade!

I started with custom building my own bench. I used my Kregjig to make pocket holes in the wood which made it super easy to build! Then I covered the sides in 5mm utility board and then ripped more utility board down to 5.5" and used that to create a faux shiplap around the bench.

Then I took the original table leg, wrapped it in Pole Wrap to update it, and painted everything white! I replaced the second bench with two (only one of the picture because the second one arrived broken!) chairs, added this beautiful dining light, and voila! This space is so much more functional and beautiful!

If you're looking for a step-by-step tutorial on this, check out the Highlight called Bench Build on my Instagram! (And don't forget to follow for more tips!)
