Painting the interior

Has anyone painted over some of the faux wood in the interior of their trailer? Or replaced the refrigerator front panel? How did you like the results?

I replaced the refer panel with one from Lowe's and couldn't be more pleased (except that this website is flipping the pic sideways)...

I replaced the refrigerator panel with one of my photographs. Well, I didn't actually replace it - I added it over the panel. Plan to glue it to the panel sometime soon.

What does a print that size cost and how do you protect it from damage?

I ordered a poster print from PosterBrain with matte finished lamination. Thicker than I expected & it has held up well although I've only been out 2 weeks with it. Custom Size (20" X 35.5") with shipping & lamination $35.00. I'll make the next one 1/2" wider so it stays in without needing to glue it to the existing panel...

Is that Mesa Verde, Jon? Looks a bit more like Utah. Beautiful photo.

It is a print of "House on Fire" in Mule Valley, UT (near Blanding). A neat ruin to see (and photograph at 10:30 AM when the sun is in the right location)

You have a habit of being in the right place at the right time...

I covered mine with the fake stainless film:

I have not painted any of the wood that can be seen sorry.

Thanks for responses and pics. Maybe I will be the first to go art deco with a line of soft up lights reflecting off the headliner.
