Still, something had to be done. A fan of direction and themes, I set myself a design goal: cozy and fresh and comfortable. Not fussy. Not mortifyingly dated or dingy. Machine-washable.
The settee cushions went to local upholsterer, as I knew I'd make hash of the long zippers. I did the rest of the sewing, with some help from my favorite sailmaker.
How long did it take? Probably longer than I think: taping the whole cabin was a full afternoon, but each coat of paint was a matter of an hour. Four coats of paint including primer, five when I went the wrong way with my choice of color.
I was hesitant about drilling holes in the walls until it occurred to me: this is a 2006 truck. What could I possibly do to make the interior design worse?
Here's how it turned out so far. Still some things left, but that's home life.
