Big progress

…on the vintage camper

Progress!
More work on the Shasta

My super-awesome husband finished painting the front 2/3rds of the camper and added my lights. I’m saving the original fixtures in case we ever sell it, but I wanted something a little more old beach house and less mid-century modern. The decor is heavily inspired by my childhood spent on the beaches of Galveston Island.

I got the front curtain up. It’s re-used from a previous kitchen done in a vintage farmhouse style, so I’ll need to add an extra panel along the bottom for the extra length. They were made after we returned from a trip to The Grand Hotel in Mackinac Island, Michigan. Everything there is painted white to serve as a fresh background for clusters of red geraniums that are everywhere you turn. I was inspired by how romantic it all felt that when we got home that I went on a years-long geranium bender. Perfume, soaps, garden…They’re all over the place.

Anyway…Point being, I like the curtains.

Also painted the ice box and Dave replaced a rotten part of the floor. Lots and lots of hard work, but I think it’s really coming along.
