Oh, what a difference
a few gallons of paint,
a very handy MR. can make.
Remember, this is what we started with:
After removing, the water-damaged wood,
then look what we found at Home Depot?!
It's made for exterior...
It's a cover-up
it won't be damaged in the event of future leaking
it's just my style.
with a pre-packaged door trim.
It was the only thing small enough in scale to work
with the petite-ness of the trailer.
(found at Home Depot)
with a soft white paint..
(are you surprised?)
(are you surprised?)
We used the hybrid oil...
I like the finish and it should be very washable.
It is amazing how clean and fresh it is now.
For the floor,
we MY MR. used a vinyl plank flooring...
(also from Home Depot)
We were not very prepared for the camping part
and had to borrow camping equipment
as I told my daughter
we may not have a cooler
we do have beadboard
(which works if we so happen to have a power hook-up)
I am so NOT even kidding.
First things, first!
When she saw the finished product
she just laughed.
I am not sure why?
Does she NOT know her mother by now?!
The inside is neutral for now.
I did not have much time to decorate.
(and by this, I do mean we- I did help some)
recovered the seats at 6:00 the morning we were leaving.
The exterior is just primer
We were playing with color
to see what we like.
I wanted an aqua with a glaze (like my back door)
MY MR. kinda looked at me like I had lost it at this point.
We shall see.
A few vital statistics:
She is a Dalton...made in California.
She is 12 ft. long
From research we think she is circa 1958-1962-ish.
I'll leave you with the *before and afters*.
Even MY MR.
had already forgotten how bad
she looked just 2 weeks ago.
