One crafty couple transformed their dated RV into a paradise

Esther and Cody live full time in their fifth wheel RV with kitty Barb and pooch Bobby. After learning of the expense and regulations behind buying a tiny house, Esther decided to make her own tiny home from an affordable RV.
Room by room, the couple reimagined the space to reflect their earthy, boho style. Now, they can lead a minimal, intentional lifestyle without sacrificing their signature aesthetic and comforts of home.

In the living room, the couple removed upper cabinetry in favor of a more open feel. Gauzy curtains, hanging baskets and seasonal decor add comforts of home. A freestanding fireplace completes the cozy vibe next to the vintage entertaining console and wide-screen television.
Across the way, a roomy sofa can double as a spare sleeping area for a guest. The ottoman boasts secret storage to conceal odds and ends while also doubling as a coffee table and place to put feet up. Overhead, open shelving houses decor and provides room for accessories.
Next to the living area, a small dining table doubles as an area for work and eating. A boho light fixture lends style overhead, and nifty hanging baskets stash excess home items. The couple painted outdated oak cabinetry a sleek white and added brushed nickel pulls.
A little bit of paint and a lot of elbow grease translated to major style in the kitchen. Esther painted oak cabinetry an olive gray underneath, sleek white overhead and plain black to conceal the fridge and freezer. A white hexagonal tile backsplash complements the minimal ash faux wood flooring underfoot. Open shelving offers storage for stylish kitchen items and serving dishes.
Even the stairs leading to the bedroom received a makeover. The couple ripped up existing carpet and replaced the treads with faux wood flooring. On the front, peel-and-stick tiles add a pop of pattern.
The bedroom is Esther's sanctuary. She brought her vision to life with handmade macrame, moon phases artwork, a cross-stitch portrait and an evil eye pillow. Inset shelving houses knickknacks collected from the couple's travels. Cafe lighting adds a soft glow to complement the laid-back aesthetic.

In the bathroom, a unique mirror takes center stage, found at Goodwill for $5. The accent pops against vinyl peel hexagonal backsplash from Walmart. IKEA spice racks were reimagined into storage for cotton swabs, beauty products and other toiletries. ​
