Kim Thompson shares the house with husband Achille Bigliardi, and said the 1,288-square-foot space fits into the couple’s commitment to living more simply, with a "less house, more life" philosophy.Without changing the footprint or moving any interior walls, see how the couple reworked their mobile home into a mod stunner in just seven weeks.
In the master bath, a tall mirrored cabinet makes the space feel bigger, and a solar tube in the shower lets in great natural light.After a recent earthquake, the couple was careful not to hang anything over their bed as part of the remodel.But for a little height and visual interest, Thompson used a screen she inherited from her mom.The pair splurged on subway tiles in both of the home’s bathrooms — and Thompson says it’s one of her very favorite parts of the revamp.She also ordered the deepest non-custom tub she could find for the guest bathroom, and opted for a glass enclosure for the master bathroom shower.She also used simple IKEA curtain panels to hide a walk-in closet, an idea that always makes the space feel tidy — and one of her favorite small details.
Not so much DIY people, the couple worked with a contractor to get most of the work done.
Filling it with Spackle will not work sadly, Even when it looks level and smooth when you go to paint u will see where the gap was. I would use a filler such as a flexible caulk to fill it in most of the way then spackle over it. It has an Alcohol Base & the primer is made from Shellac which is a natural product: Zinsser B-I-N ...
To Glinda: For people with allergies, you could probably use this product it's made to use in Schools, Hospitals & Industrial Kitchens.
epair.com/phpbb/As far as "TEXTURE" goes, I'm going to do one of the Brow Bag Wall Treatments (there are many) Just Google "brown bag walls", but before you begin the brown bag wall treatment in a mobile home, first tape all the cracks (or lines) in the paneling with WHITE duct tape.
I like the brown bag (or paper bag) technique because it covers a multitude of sins (& wall grooves).
Plus, it came in at about half the price of Ceasarstone or another similar material.
