2005 36 TK3 Re-floor

Just finished. Stole most of the idea from "mortons on the move". If you want to steal from them its is on you tube. She does a good job explaining what they did and she is a lot better looking than me. Check it out. Two small problems, the edge on the slide out is white. We painted it brown but the paint didn't take on the plastic so it looks a bit crappy. Still deciding what to do. Also that slide put a lot of weight on the carpet as it slid in. I was afraid it would scratch the new floor and it did. I cut a couple pieces of carpet about a foot square and stick them under the corners of the slide as it comes in. That seems to have solved the problem. While we were rolling wife made new window trearments and we removed that wallpaper border that ran around the room,

Stanley, you 'da man! I mean she 'da man! Ah, you know what I mean....it looks great. And I don't think the border EVER looked good on ANY of these units.

Your local Lowes, Menards or Home Depot have paint specifically for plastic. It holds very well and weathers only OK if you would use it on outdoor plastic furniture.

Ummmmm.............why not replace the original tile behind the peninsula? That would make it all match.

I like the looks of that new tile though.

I would like to see how you finished the slide out edges. Could you post a closer pic of an outside corner.

Thanks!

I did a similar project several years ago in a 2014. I used ceramic tile and left the carpet in the door side slide. Cut a strip of the old carpet to use as runners for the rollers.
