We’ve been working hard on the trailer and hope to have it ready for a test run next week, then for a real trip on Mike’s 40th birthday May 4th.
The interior is this horrible brown wood paneling. We wanted to paint it, but in order to do so, it had to be primed. Also, it was really hard to get the primer in the little grooves of the paneling so Mike decided to caulk them. It was a big job but made a huge difference in the ease of paint application and the overall look.
I finally chose this fabric for the cushions and everything is at the upholstery shop now. Should be done in a week or two. The blue paint chip is the color we painted the interior and the other chips are ideas for the exterior. We bought these floor tiles at the Restore for cheap but think they are going to be too heavy and too hard to install so we’re still on the quest for flooring. We hope to find something in a light green or yellow, like these.
I got some red fabric to make curtains but we’re still trying to figure out what kind of rods to use. We tried tension rods but they’re not sturdy enough. I don’t mind cheapy cafe rods but Mike likes the idea of a wire to hold up the curtains. I like the idea of a wire, too. Just hope it isn’t too expensive or complicated to make.
Here are some ideas I have for the exterior paint pattern. But probably using the orange, yellow, and green from the image above.
I kind of want to do the exterior in orange, yellow, and/or green but this light turquoise is awfully cute, too.
Which ones do you like best? Have you seen any other that are extra awesome?
