My goal for spring 2013- find us a camper! I did not even have to seek one out, it came to me. A relative had a 1970 Shasta 1400 series that they were going to fix up as a hunting shack but decided they would rather sell it. In comes a girl in need of a camper, and we were soon parking a camper in our snow covered driveway.
Cold weather does not motivate me, but with a deadline of June 1st I suited up and got to work.
Daddy-O started some demolition, but before going too far I stopped him to survey the progress. The ceiling had some water damage and despite the replacement of the vent, it was unsightly. So out goes the ceiling! We also had to replace some of the wall paneling that was already missing. The yellow houndstooth check flooring was the only original piece I was sure was staying.
A trip to the antique store proved fateful. This headboard came home with me for under $20 and was soon to become my back rest.
The paneling in the kitchen will stay, but needs some paint as I am not loving the dark wood.
Cupboard doors off for sanding, priming, and painting.
The first piece of paneling goes up! Exciting!
BoPeep came over to help me pick paint colors, since I had too many ideas rolling around in my head. We discussed chandeliers, hammer handle walls, pop art, and pinstriping. I love entertaining her with my artistic ideas!
I decide up on a pale yellow and aqua to tone down the gold yellows in the headboard and counter.
So much sanding and priming made me think I might never see color, but alas one rainy day I put on my headphones and set to work getting some paint on the walls. By this time Daddy-O was getting nervous that it would be finished for glamping.
I can not tell you how excited I was to get all the cupboards put back. I could see the light at the end of the tunnel!
However with HVG Glamping less than one week away I was suddenly feeling a knot in my stomach. A three day memorial Day weekend was to the rescue as Daddy-O built me a bench seat across the back, and I added some last minute decorating.
A vintage mirror with Lily of the Valley etching caught my eye at the antique store, and now I had the perfect place to put it/excuse to buy it!
Check the tires and lights, we're ready to go to Wildcat Mountain for HVG Glamping!
