What can you do with a Snoozy?

I've been reading the gals ideas on glamping in other threads.
Guess I may have got a bit of the "bug" from it. Thought I'd throw
a few things out and maybe in turn get some ideas from others.
With the non-square design and the door in the rear (well, those
are excuses) I just don't have any imagination..........LOL

First pic (finding items one or two at a time).
I'm not a flea-market/yard sale kind of person, but may become one.



If I were solo-ing I could use my very old coffee mug from the Navy years.
USS America CVA-66 (aircraft carrier) in Tonkin Gulf (Viet Nam). 1970



Or maybe set for two except wife hates coffee (could pour her some coke)



The very first inkling of doing anything was looking for a solution to cover the back door window. Daughter likes butterflies so she got to pick this out for blocking all the windows. This one I velcro-ed in the four corners so it didn't fall off when I used the screen door. First trip or two I was throwing my shirt over the door and closing it at night. Didn't care much for that.

And yes, this is a car shade. We picked up several at Walmart in some town near the campground we were at.

Today I had to go to the VA Clinic.
A 40 mile round trip became a 150 mile round trip......lol
Well, wife and I made a day of it. We hit several stores
looking for "stuff." I haven't been scolded yet so I guess she
is okay with the idea of messing with the camper.

This I found at a Walmart in Missouri I think. They only had
one so thought it would fit over Kitchen window nicely and I
could use something different for my other two windows.

This is actually over the Entertainment Area (where we put the tv).



My curtain rod that I found at a Target fits my Kitchen area perfectly but
the Kitchen light prevented me from putting the curtain there at first. I will
have to remove or reposition the light fixture to put the curtain where I want it.



This is a mock up in the Kitchen Area. And I put some towels and pot holder over
the cabinet door so you could see a couple more items.
I also found a practical item at Target. Something to keep
the wet bar of soap off the counter.



A few more items. I found some plastic place mats at another Walmart.
I picked up 3 for the 3 of us (dad, mom, daughter) but when I checked out
there were 5 of them. Must have stuck together. I told the clerk I picked
up three but if 5 were stuck together that was okay. These I can use to put
on a table outside. I also found a table spread but guess the picture didn't
show it. (on the left)



EDIT: Oops! Table spread is there, I just couldn't see it with the background.

I picked this up at Camping World.
A knife safe to go behind the cabinet door (but won't work in my Snoozy)
Maybe on one of the lower cabinet doors? Will have to tinker with it and see.
If not, guess it will go in the house.

Looking good Carl! I have those same towels and hot pad in my camper! I really like your curtains, too!

Your look is really coming together with the the coffee theme. Colors give it a nice warm, cozy feel. Keep it coming!

I looked at each store for my "Revolution is Brewing" material but no luck.
Wife told me when I see what I like I need to pick it up right then and there.

Now I'll work on mixing in my military theme in with the coffee theme.

I was in OI Division in the Navy. [Operation Intelligence Div.]
But I got stuck with keeping 2 thirty gallon coffee machines going. lol.

When I got the hang of making massive amounts of coffee it took me
about 15 to 30 minutes a shift. Depended on whether I wanted to get
right back to work or not and if I could get away with it......LOL

Looks great! You know, it is hard to get that coffee theme. I decided I wanted curtains for my newly painted kitchen a couple weeks ago and both online and at the store in town, they did not have matching sets. I could not believe it. The colors for you though really came together. And, the Snoozy itself looks really nice. I always thought that the Snoozy was the classiest looking of the FGRVs.

Anxious to see what you do with the Navy thing. My husband was in the Navy on the America. I was in the Air Force. Don't think we'll have a military theme. Would be sort of like battling banjos or something for us.

I had that knife holder in a motorhome we had and it was so handy!

I've found a couple of items to start a nautical theme in conjunction.
Will post pics of those when they arrive. And now that I've finally
got a few ideas I can do more intuitive shopping now.........LOL

Glad to hear of a fellow "American"..........LOL
As I was looking for items I found some USS America things and to my
surprise some ship annuals were going for $150-$175. Wife thinks I
should sell mine.................(not gonna happen)

I'm thinking it can sure be a hard balance.
Not to be too sissy for me, and not to be too masculine for wife and daughter.
We'll see how this all turns out when I finish.......LOL

There has to be a balance I think.
Should be possible since it's way too small to put a car engine on the table.

You've got a great start on the coffee theme! Your colors are basically, brown, tan and light blue. Be careful of overdoing the print and the themes. The small interior can easily get overwhelmed. You might want to have your bed comforter in solid colors or bold stripes. The other windows could benefit by having a solid ivory/tan color in the middle with the end panels in the coffee print. (You can cut up your current curtain to make end panels) Also, look on the Walmart site to see if you can match the curtain fabric you have. Check the package for the ID number. I found these related curtains on their site you might consider.
Better Homes and Gardens Cafe Window Tier - Walmart.com
Achim Importing Co Coffee Tier and Swag Set: Decor : Walmart.com
I'd suggest a couple throw pillows in solid colors or matching print.

If you've been checking out the "glamping" posts you have, no doubt, seen my photo of my Southwest theme as follows:

You might want to check out some fabric websites to find a coordinating coffee design to make curtains and pillows. A quick look on Fabric.com (look up "coffee print") produced at least 8 coffee-themed fabrics. https://www.fabric.com/SearchResults...3-26a376046a5e Following is but one.

In my previous post I showed a cafe curtain from Walmart. It has a light solid on top with a printed border. This is a good design to show off the novelty print without overwhelming the tiny trailer space AND let in light.

Curtains and pillows are SIMPLE sewing projects. There are a ton of DIY videos and instructions on the web.

'Looking forward to seeing your next decor adventure!

Thanks for the links Gilda.
I did find one in particular but could not click on it......LOL
I finally saw the note below that said "currently unavailable."

I can see the fun in searching but also the problem of so many
decisions. And what will work with what......LOL

I think when I get my other items and get them installed they
should spurn more ideas............

Today, wife took her mother to the doctor and shopping.
M-i-l took her walker, so wife said she had to take our van.
That left me with the "car." lol. I was going to drive my truck,
but the car gets twice the mpg than the truck.

And my feet are killing me. A lot more walking than this fat boy is used to.

In Tontitown, Ark. there is a store called "OOPS"
I guess it is supposed to be "seconds" and the like.
But it's actually a huge import store. With lots of odds and ends.

I found a few more items there. I'll have to figure out if I use them all or not.
I put my Navy cup in the pic to show how small the 4 cups I picked up are.
The chrome item on the left is a "boat rope cleat." I've got several but this is
a lot heavier than what I bought for my jon boat. Thought it would make a
hefty spot for a hefty purse you ladies carry.

The package behind the Navy cup is some "Deer Whistlers."
Thought I could blend them in under the belly band hopefully to decrease
the possibility of making 'creamed deer.'

This is a nautical Door Knocker.



With it open you can see there is a "square knot" underneath.

My first thought was to mount it on the outside on the door.
I've been trying to find some prints or objects to spruce up the cabinet doors.
So, I temporarily attached the Door Knocker on the cabinet door with two-sided
tape for a picture. I think I really want to clean it up and paint it before I put it
up permanently whether inside or outside. Where would you put it?
And do you think painting it would make it look tacky?
I'm getting a lot of brown...........LOL

The reason my feet hurt other than they hurt all the time anyway is I walked
every single isle of OOPS to see what I could find and use. Then I did a first
for me. I walked every isle of a second hand store. I walked every isle of two
antique stores. That's 1 fairly good sized store and 3 large warehouses. By the
time I finished I was done for the day. I planned on going to a 7-in-1 store in
Fort Smith, Ark. but forgot that notion. That would have been an extra 3 hours
of driving and I don't think I could have walked another step. And I could have
worn the wrong shoes for this.

EDIT: I also walked every isle of Hobby Lobby and BIG LOTS
so, that's 5 warehouse type buildings. Whew!......no wonder.
