I have had a dream of owning my very own little vintage trailer for several years now. Something about a little glammed up camper has held such intrigue and magic for me. A sweet little mobile home away from home that we can travel in and go where ever the stars take us, filled with yumminess and wonder,a dreamlike place to call my own....
And finally I have one! We got my little jewel box on Wednesday of last week, and what a transformation that has taken place so far.... Shes only 12 feet long, and she's a Diamond Top.
This is her when we brought her home. She has some slight imperfections, but I love that about her. I mean don't we all?
The entry way and part of the kitchen... How about that Gold and Brown??? YUK! But I could look past all that, and see my vision of what she could become.
The dining room/bedroom area.
The tiny little kitchen area. Gotta love those pho-wood drawers and that apple wallpaper back splash! NOT!
A quick shot of inspiration, so you don't become board :) Love the Aqua!!!!
Time to get dirty!!! Stripped out all the appliances, filled holes with Spackle and getting to work on making this baby shine...
A Fresh new coat of white paint to brighten her spirit and bring in some light will do the trick!
Wait til you see how they turn out a bit later in the post!
OK are you ready???? Here's what she's looking like now after 1 week!!!!
I've been feverishly making curtains,slipcover's and pillows for my little camper. Still have lots to do, but couldn't resist showing you the beginning stages of this project. I found this perfect vinatge table cloth at my local thrift for $3.99 ! Score!!! I so LoVe it!!!
My sweet baby violet seems to enjoy what's becoming my little jewel box...
We added lots of crown molding to help raise the ceiling a bit. It's only 6 ft high inside, and about 68 sq. feet total including all the built-In's. Very tiny and cozy cozy cozy. I'm hoping that I can work out those spots on the counter top with some deeeeep scrubbing, bleach, and a magic eraser, if not, I'm sure I have a trinket or pretty I can hide it with! LOL!
Here's a shot of that wheel you saw before earlier in the post NOW! Isn't it just the cutest ever!!! My Stevie's just amazing with what he can do with a day of sanding, tape and paint!!!! Love that man! He doesn't even mind the pink, because he knows I love it, so he loves it. Gushy Gushy Gushy....
We are planning to paint out the black with the aqua, when the weather cooperates here in Oregon. It can't decide if it's June or Juneuary, still pretty rainy and cold. Makes it fun for painting, but us Oregonian's just put on our big girl panties and do the best you can... right?
Well I hope you enjoyed the tour so far... I gotta get crakcin' on making pillows today. I did pick up some white dingle-balls from the fabric store last night that I'm pretty excited about. I mean, what's a vintage trailer without dingle- balls?!?
I can't wait to show you more as the progression happens. So stay tuned for more FUN!!! I'd love to hear your comments too, so drop me a line in the box below, Until then....
Have a Fabulous Day!!!!
