Camper Renovation - Time to Decorate

I am so excited to say that the hard work is done. Yay!!

Seriously can't believe that I had this three week idea to patch and decorate our vintage camper and that it turned into a five month re-build. We're basically done with that part - just need to install the air conditioner and pop the fridge in when I get those. Oh and the windows need new screens... but that's no biggie! Dad is finally finished with his part of helping me out and now it's pretty much all me. Yes, it's time to start caulking, priming and painting my little heart out.

The hole in the cabinet door is so for the "kitty loo" and the fridge will sit on that shelf to the left of the door. Under the fridge will be a place for the pet water bowl. 

The cabinet under the stove has a water heater - now we have hot water for the sink. 

Back seating area, with under the seat storage. The couch will pull out to make a queen size bed.

When I was out sick with my concussion, my dad was busy working on the Williams Craft plaques, bringing them to their original condition. He did a great job. And check out the new trailer lights. 

The new metal siding for the front and roof turned out really nice. 

So yeah, that's how she looks right now! Of course there is no way I could have done this without my dad. Dad you're the best! Thank you so much for helping me re-build Camperrrr.

And don't worry guys... my dad is living it up now and relaxing with his new if-it's-any-bigger-it-would-block-the-windows TV. Back when we started this project I joked that I was going to buy him a fancy new big screen TV. He would get so mad and tell me to not even think about it! That he'd get a new one when that old one kicked the bucket. Well, I do what I want... and I think he's attached. Goodness knows he deserves it.

Stay tuned for more Camperrrr goodness.  Can't wait to see what's next!
