Tiny Home Heaven: a Chic RV Makeover

Ashley Dennis | 29 May 2019 | RV

June is National Camping Month so we're featuring one of our favorite RV makeovers with Tiny Home Hailey! In 2018, Hailey left her brick & mortar Special Education teaching job to travel full-time with her fiance, Michael, in their Grand Design Solitude Fifth Wheel RV.

Since embarking on their RV adventure they have painted, replaced the backsplash, built custom shelving in the underbelly storage compartments, installed a water softening system and swapped out the standard RV furnishings for real home furniture- including new Roller Shades! See what she had to say about their recent RV transformation below.

Hailey Says:

"I get asked all the time how we made our blinds or where we got them, so I decided it’s time to just do a full post all about these beauties! We decided to get rid of the standard valance/cellular blinds and upgrade to Blinds.com’s Premier Decorative Roller Shade. While working with a customer service member who specializes in RVs, I decided to add white colored blackout backing to the street side view of our roller shades. BEST DECISION EVER!!! Especially with this Arizona heat!"

Michael loves wood and metal fabrication and Hailey is passionate about Interior Design so together they're a handy couple. Their decor style is what we'd call Modern Farmhouse Chic To-Go!

Hailey Says:

"The pattern I decided to go with to compliment my modern farmhouse vibe was: Malaga Beige/Navy (FB15168A-4). These decorative yet functional roller shades dress up your windows at a very affordable price. Also, all of their roller shades come with additional fabric to ensure that the roller is not exposed when unrolled completely."

Hailey Says:

"I cannot say enough positive things about how seamless and easy it was to measure, choose all of the different add on and hardware options, order, and quickly receive the finished product. The shades themselves are nice and thick, and made of very durable materials and quality, in my opinion. Blinds.com also offers the Surefit Guarantee, which means you can have complete peace of mind when measuring for any product they offer. If you made a mistake measuring for your blind, they'll remake it at no cost to you! How cool is that?!

Hailey Says:

"Our blinds have been installed for 6+ months now, and our RV has driven over 4K miles with them in. They have not budged, fallen, tore off, or moved one bit. The hardware and product itself that comes with every Blinds.com order is made with great quality and it shows."
