The Bedroom

Mom’s strategy was to start at one end of the trailer and work toward the other end. That meant the bedroom was first.
Here’s Joanna with the roller, and Mom working on the edges.

Jesse carried a paint roller around feeling important and helpful – one of the team!


Elise and Mom did trim.

Ta-da! I love the color – which is different than this photo, naturally. It’s hard to get a picture that’s true to color. Very cozy.

    Erin, I'm not sure what kind of paneling you have – ours was that cheap, fake wood stuff that had been wallpapered over at least once. there were also holes in the wall from previous owners, as well as smoke and water stains on the ceiling. Jeremy patched the walls with drywall mud and we painted KILZ over the stains, then painted right over everything. Again, it held up well for the year we were there and I'm sure it's still looking better than it did before we made improvements!

    Trina, did you paint directly over those icky textured wall panels that most trailers have? We live in a newer trailer and I would really like to add some life to the walls, but have been hesitating due to some of the horror stories I've heard about painting over these wallpaper panel things. Any tips? How did the paint job hold up?
