Changing out your RV couch and dinette is a simple, affordable, and smart way to make a huge impact in your RV. Using residential items to modernize your RV is much easier than you think!
Demo in this slide was pretty extensive, I completely gutted it. Slide trim, couch, dinette, lighting, carpet, table, it all went. After I removed the carpet, we found a spot of water damage in the slide floor that required me to cut the rotten floor out and replace it with a patch.

(Initial Damage, Patch, Finished Corner)
I used $14 (now $19) wainscoting panels from Lowes to create this beautiful wall treatment in this slide that added such depth and contrast with the dark couch.
Paint and flooring, as always, made a huge change and brought this slide to life. Painting the upper cabinet the same color as the wall color was a great way for me to make the upper cabinets nearly disappear, making this slide feel so much taller and brighter!
In the dining area, I got a table from IKEA but it was a little too long for the slide, so I cut it to size and screwed it directly to the back wall of the slide with 4 L brackets. This attached it to the wall, but also will keep the table in place during transit. The couch is also screwed to the floor with 2 L brackets that are attached to the back legs.
I added new window treatments, which are these roller shades from Target. I love how they are light filtering but not see through. For the lighting, I chose a wall sconce that had a switch, since the old sconce did not have a wall switch. For the dining light, I fell in love with this light, but it didn't have a switch. So I installed my own switch (that black spot on the ceiling) so that I could turn the light on and off, but didn't have to sacrifice not using the beautiful light fixture that I loved!
This is a modern, clean, sleek RV dining and living area that is both functional and beautiful!
