Duuuuuuuuuude that is the sickest shit I've ever seen. You've inspired me. I wanna remodel my RV and pimp it out with epoxy. I wanna do the counter tops white epoxy marble with silver pink veins, pink satin tufted walls. white cabinets with the middle section either pink marble, silver and white veined epoxy inlay with white moulding around it, or pink tufted fabric. I want it to look like the inside of a jewelry box. What do you think? Oh, and drk grey carpet, grey velvet tufted seats & couches

Hopefully it will be when I am done. I haven't started on the inside yet. My husband and boyfriend (long story) are drag assing on the project, which means if I want it done, I'll have to do it myself. Not a problem...but I dont know anything about power tools, other than a dremel. So for the next 3 months, I am researching and learning all I can about how to pull it off. But when it finally gets done, I'll be sure to post pictures.
