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!
World Market Living Room
The lovely living room has a sophisticated, world market style and is beautifully decorated in subtle tones and overstuffed furniture. It looks like a perfect place to snuggle up to a good book!
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.
The bedroom in CeeKay’s home is amazing! The large headboard really makes a statement and gives the room an air of sophistication.
A whimsical collection of antique washing boards and baby clothes are a perfect match for a laundry room!
