Remember how I told you how uncomfortable the bed was in Kiki?
Hard as a rock, yes siree! Well, we decided to work on it.
Below is how it looks today.
It didn't always look like this.
We thought we were so smart and decided to take out the rectangular piece and make twin beds.
We bought memory foam for comfort and I cut it to fit the area. Bought 5, yes 5 fitted sheets. 2 for the bottom mattresses, 2 for the cover sheets and 1 for that top part. Got all of these goods home and I thought ~ this is just stupid, let's just get a mattress!
So the next step was to take out all of the mattresses and measure the triangular piece
and get some finished plywood cut to fit.
The finished plywood has a smooth service so it wouldn't pick the mattress.
Voila! The plywood fit perfectly. Bought a pillow top 'full' sized mattress and we were good to go!
Now this area will hold a queen size but since you can't walk around the bed I thought it would be easier to get the full size and then we'd have a little area on each side of the bed so we could put our glasses there or a book at night. Kinda like little skinny night stands.
Just perfect. I do amaze myself sometimes! :)
Here is the bed with the back shade drawn. As you can see there is no headboard area just windows and a shade. You can see the plywood across the bottom there.
We'll sleep like babies I just know we will!
There's been wonderful homes tours this past week in blogland
so I though I would give you a little tour of our little RV, Kiki.
Oh, I'm a shortie so that is my little step stool so I can climb up into the bed at night.
Perfect little spot to put it too!
The door to the left is a little closet
and the two handles on the doors at the right open up for the little bathroom.
Okay, come on in. This is what you see as you walk in to Kiki from the sliding side door.
This seat makes a twin sized bed if you need it. I just sit on it when I get the chance.
I brought my yarn and crochet hook so I could start making a baby blanket for my little grandbaby who will enter this world in October.
Just turn your tiny head to the right and you can see the rest of Kiki.
The little tiny kitchen area on the left.
I decorated just a little for you. Now the only thing that drives me crazy in Kiki is this stupid TV poked right there on the counter! Who would have done something like this? I'll tell you ~ it must have been a man! ARGH!! Well, I just have to work around it.
A little lift up of the cover and there are my two little gas burners to warm up stuff or cook a little.
Another little lift up of cover exposes the tiny little round sink. The faucet raises up.
Now if you know me, I gotta have a few Roosters around me to feel at home.
Here we are looking up toward the cab. That's my chair you can see. When we get settled in a campground, that chair turns around to face the kitchen. Mr. Precious sits there mostly so he can watch the TV! I told you a man put that stupid TV there!
This view shows you how small Kiki really is.
But she's so much fun and we are just loving her!
Now there you have my little Kiki tour. This is what I see as I'm perched up on my little stool about ready to jump into bed.
Hope you've enjoyed my little tour of Kiki.
I still have more decorating ideas that I want to do to her.
I keep telling myself ~ in time, Shelia, in time.
I'll share with you next time where we went.
Thanks for popping in,
