When you search for renovated RVs, you most often find fifth wheels. Nothing against trailers, but can we give motorhomes some love? RV owner Lee Ann Garrett shared her beautiful Class C RV renovation in our Facebook group and we couldn't wait to share it with you!
Let's start with the cab!
Beautiful Class C Renovation Design
In the cab of her motorhome, Lee Ann painted the cabinets white and added all new hardware. We love the decorative touches with battery-powered candles, wreathes, and a clock. This simple, classic design gives a great first impression when entering the Class C RV.
Recreate the look:
- Artificial Eucalyptus Wreath:This lovely wreath is handmade with fake green eucalyptus leaves and clusters of white flowers on a wired iron ring.It looks very realistic and eye-catching.
Creative Fabric Design Accents
One of the most unique additions Lee Ann made to this RV is the cane webbing accents in the cabinets. You can see this in the cab and throughout the RV.
The cane webbing was adhered with a 3M spray-on adhesive. Lee Ann added that she laid the webbing under some heavy pavers so it would be completely flat before application. Then, “spray heavily.”
The rattan cane webbing came from Amazon:
- Natural material: Made from natural rattan imported from South East Asian countries. The cane webbing is environmentally friendly, non-toxic and insect-proof.
A Fresh Coat of Paint for the Cabinets
Moving into the kitchen, Lee Ann stayed creative with her cabinets opting for navy blue lower cabinets and white uppers.
The lower cabinet color is Hales Navy by Benjamin Moore. Before painting, Lee Ann did a lot of prep work to make sure the cabinets looked professional. She “sanded, cleaned well with TSP, added 2 coats of Kilz primer, and 2 coats of paint. We did lightly sand between coats.”
The flawless finish was applied with a brush—no specialty paint-sprayer needed!
Lee Ann completely replaced the countertops in the kitchen with a 1-inch butcher block from Home Depot. There's no stain on the shiny new counters, but you do need to “continue to apply the conditioner” to keep the counters looking beautiful.
This brand is our go-to:
- Receive 1 each of: Howard Butcher Block Conditioner (12oz) + Cutting Board Oil (12oz) + Daley Mint Cloth (20 x 17 Inch)
A Large Sectional Sofa Completes the Living Room
If you've been wanting to see a LoveSac in an RV, here is your chance!
Their couches may be pricey, but this one looks great with added decorative pillows and throws. Lee Ann noted that the couch sits on the slide out and is secured to the floor.
Beautiful wood floors, a rug from Pottery Barn, and decor make this short Class C motorhome feel like home.

DIY Entertainment Center for the Master Bedroom
Now to my favorite feature on this Class C renovation: the bedroom. Namely, this entertainment center wall.
Lee Ann used “lightweight decorative wall boards from Home Depot” to create a natural wood horizontal shiplap. The most difficult part was installing the fireplace, including running the wire to a separate breaker on the RV.
Peel-and-Stick Tiles Shine in This Bathroom
Lee Ann did a complete remodel in her bathroom, with new countertops, a new sink and faucet, new light fixtures, and a gorgeous peel-and-stick tile backsplash.
Recreate the look with this white marble and gold backsplash:
- Easy DIY, Just Peel & stick, cut with tin snip , utility knives or hand saws, saving large amount on labor.
DIYer Tip: How to Install Peel-and-Stick Backsplash
A peel-and-stick backsplash is the go-to choice for RV renovations. It's lightweight and inexpensive. There are thousands of design options out there, whether you want a simple white subway tile or a colorful, one-of-a-kind backsplash.
Peel-and-stick tiles will come with an adhesive. In some cases, this adhesive is all you'll need. But if you're installing in a bathroom that includes a shower or if you're installing around a stove, you may consider extra adhesive.
RVers have tried:
- A dot of Gorilla Glue in the corners
- Acrylic latex painter’s caulk applied along the edges
- Elmer's spray adhesive (for a permanent bond)
- Wallpaper paste (also permanent!)
Before installing, don't forget to prep your walls according to the instructions. A heavy-duty cleaner like TSP can remove any grease or residue left behind—especially in kitchens!
A Showerhead Makes All the Difference!
Looking at the Facebook comments, everyone's favorite feature in this RV had to be the showerhead! It definitely gives the bathroom a more upscale feel and probably improves the shower experience as well.
Recreate the look:
- EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE：Transform your shower with this modern shower head. This luxurious, rainfall-style shower head is made of Sturdy stainless steel material for durability and reliability, with a premium brushed gold finished that is resistant to tarnishing and corrosion. Enjoy a waterfall-like shower experience, with modern excellence in performance.
Since this shower isn't enclosed as part of the bathroom but is open to the rest of the house, choosing a curtain that matches the home's design is a great way to disguise the shower.
