This French Country Double Wide Manufactured Home Makeover is a Treat!
Former blogger and double wide domestic diva, Amanda Livenwell, is a pen name coined by this homeowner in her effort to chronicle when her family of 10 downsized from a 2200 square foot home in suburbia, complete with HOA, to a 10-acre country site and a French Country double wide.
“Amanda Livenwell is the pen name of a stay-at-home mom who shares the adventure of living large on one income in, yes, a double-wide trailer! Join our family as we say goodbye to suburbia, trim down, and start saving to build our own home. We’re going to talk about doing it yourself, living beautifully on less, making do or doing without, and counting it all joy in the process.”
Before Manufactured Home Makeover
Before her family moved into the home Amanda had a lot to do. She was determined to create a beautiful French Country double wide and that’s exactly what she did!
She began by painting the walls a light yellow and a bright white. Here’s what the home looked like before the manufactured home makeover:
Kitchen Before Paint
Kitchen After Paint
Tiling the Kitchen Counter
Amanda then resurfaced the countertop with a small 1-inch tile in a natural tan stone. The project cost less than $300.00 and allowed enough left over in her budget for new flooring.
She used sticky tiles as a floor covering in the kitchen. The overall effect is astounding.
