You have already seen snippets here and there of the cabinetry in the motorhome as I've shared other projects I've completed. Today I thought I would show you the cabinets now that they have all been refinished.
|Here is a shot of the cabinet underneath the sink|
Left is before and right is after - Wow!
The original finish was starting to flake off and the wood was really dry. They needed a little love. After some research and viewing several Youtube videos I decided to go with Howard Restor-A-Finish to refinish the oak cabinets and boy am I glad I did. For one thing, this stuff really works!

It does a phenomenal job, is low in fumes and odor and you don't have to dismantle anything. There isn't any real prep work to do either other than to wash the surface off to remove any grease and grime that may have accumulated. I was fortunate here as well. The previous owners had kept Laverne really clean.

|Inside the cupboards over the couch|
Lots of bins to keep things organized - they are all empty right now
|I love that I have easy access to the storage under the couch|
I used 0000 grit steel wool and got busy doing it exactly like I had seen on the videos and had also read on the back of the can. Working my way around the motorhome I did every wooden surface there was. After letting it dry a couple days I followed up with the recommended beeswax polish. I couldn't be happier and the whole project cost me less than $25! Can you believe that?!

The one on the left sits on its side to corral the bath towels
|I got these bins at Dollar Tree|
|Plenty of storage with more bins and a shelf I added in the bottom|
So far I just have hangers, a coat and a backpack in there
|This cupboard under the refrigerator is still a work in progress|

So what do you think? Pretty amazing, huh? I am really pleased with it.
