This gorgeous double wide is absolutely ready for Christmas!  We’ll share the home before and after the homeowner’s updates first and then you can see the home decorated for the Holidays.

Vintage ornaments, feathered Christmas trees, happy snowman carolers and other holiday glitz decorate nearly every surface of this beautiful double wide in Mesa, Arizona.

It’s only the homeowners, Ceekay and her husbands second Christmas in their new manufactured home, and it’s certainly being celebrated in style.

Downsizing and Updating: A Manufactured Home Story

This has been a busy year and a half for the couple. From the minute they decided to downsize from their larger site-built home into this double wide there has been near constant  DIY  projects going on.

Ceekay is a popular blogger with a large following, and writes about her manufactured home decorating and improvements on her two blogs: Thinkin’ of Home and Double Wide Decor.  She is also battling cancer and is a positive voice for cancer awareness. Her fierce fight along with her positive attitude is an inspiration to all.

A double wide was not CeeKay’s ideal dream home.

A manufactured home wasn’t something the couple had ever considered before, but when cancer struck and she was no longer able to work as a legal assistant, they made the tough, but logical, decision to sell their current house and pay cash for a smaller, more affordable home.

Downsizing is not easy and it’s especially not easy when you are used to living in a larger, more spacious home. However, CeeKay embraced the decision and absolutely made the best of it. Several home improvement projects and beautiful manufactured home decorating transformed it into a beautiful home!

Manufactured Home Before Remodel and Decor

Here’s the home as it was listed in the sales brochure:

The home sits in a gated, 55+ community and had been well preserved. Few updates had been made to the interior style, though, so CeeKay and her husband quickly got to work making the changes.

Here’s a the home after the double wide remodel was complete:

Painted Kitchen Cabinets 

Painting kitchen cabinets are a great way to update a home. The use of black is very popular these days and goes with practically any style. Black is perfect for cabinetry because it hides smudges and fingerprints, too.

 

 

Shelving adds additional storage space for CeeKay’s antique collection:

Granite Counter tops 

Granite counter tops are a great choice to make kitchens look more custom and high end. You can sometimes find affordable granite on Craigslist, which is exactly where CeeKay found hers!

High-end doesn’t necessarily mean high-cost!

As you can see in the photos, CeeKay is an avid antique collector and has a fine collection of furniture and decor. Some pieces are family heirlooms and some were found at estate and garage sales.

    Crystal, my friend, this one brought me to tears. The remodel was beautiful! I know, with my own, even now, not finished, I get lots of comments on what a great job I’ve done. I’m very proud of that! Have been going through all the Christmas decorations we’ve stashed away since our house fire seven years ago. I had no idea how much there was! My kids and grandkids are coming here for Christmas this year and I wanted to decorate the place. For the first time in 17 years, I’m putting up a tree! Ceekays decorated home gave me some great ideas! Prayers to her family over the holidays without their loved one!
    I, too, painted my lower cabinets a darker color so as not to show the dirt!!!!! Great minds think alike! Merry Christmas and happy new year to you and yours! Your friend and biggest fan, Dreama

    My thoughts and prayers are with her family at this time. Ceekay passed away this September after a battle with cancer. She had a beautiful home and will be greatly missed.

    I love your house — your style is very similar to mine so I adore everything you’ve done! Are the kitchen cabinets solid wood throughout? I would love to paint mine, but my cabinet boxes are that stick on vinyl — only my doors are solid oak.

    I really loved the laundry room ideas. I just cant seem to get my husband in the movement to finish his starting of his jobs. I have started painting my kitchen cabinets I love the look. Love your home and I would like to see more about selling and buying a used mobile home. State of Illinois has some really strange laws.

      Hi Debbie!! CeeKay’s home is gorgeous and I, too, especially loved the laundry room. It’s so creative!

      We can never seem to get our projects finished. We have no problem starting most of them but we just never seem to completely finish them at all..lol. It’s so hard for someone to work full time and then want to come home and work even more. It will eventually all work out and maybe our homes will be as beautiful as CeeKays..fingers crossed for us!

      Thanks for commenting!

      Hi Deborah!

      I like white kitchens, too, and painted mine a bright white but I think I’m going to try to go with a charcoal or darker grey, like CeeKay’s, on the bottom cabinets. I just can’t keep the bottom cabinets clean at all.

      Ceekay’s home is gorgeous and I’m so appreciative of her letting me feature her home. Thanks for commenting!
