Some days I don't know what to say or where to start...someone recently ask about my camper restoration, so here's what's happening. I joined Sisters on the Fly! I got my membership packet in the mail a couple of weeks ago and I'm Sister #4922.
I got this cute mason jar welcome sign from one of my Instagram friends @kristywalters (Country Soul).
The camper door was u-g-l-y, and had layers peeling up. My solution- staple turquoise burlap over it! I found the metal silver trim at Hobby Lobby. They consider it ribbon and it was 40% off! I was able to staple it over the burlap as well.
Everything is better with mason jars, right? I found this string of cute lights at Bealls. They were 40% off, plus I had an additional 20% off coupon. I love a good sale!
I keep adding layers to this curtain. I can't seem to figure out when to stop. I printed out some of my favorite inspirational #rhonnadesign pictures I've shared on Instagram and hung as a banner.
My girls love to go camping with me! One of the main rules of SOTF is no dogs- these two will be upset if I hit the open road without them.
The next biggest makeover project is painting the outside of Ms Gussie. Hopefully that will happen this fall. Oh, and seeing this picture reminds me- I finally got a title for the camper! I was told she had a clear title when I bought her. Turns out, it wasn't. Here's a helpful hint- don't sign and date a title in 2009 and never transfer the title to your name. I had to get a bonded title and then learned there were a few other options that could have been pursued. Long story short, I got the run around from the TXDMV, but I know how it all works now. The bonded title process wasn't as difficult as I was led to believe, and all worked out fine.
So that's what's been happening with my glamper this summer and now I'm ready to go camping again.
It looks so cute, Janice. And, you are really looking wonderful! :)ReplyDelete
Oh I so want a clamped. Here is a silly question.......would an average size vintage camper be too wide to fit in one car space in a garage. I love that yours has a/c. Does it have a bathroom. Oh so many questions. So glAd I found your blog.ReplyDelete
I'm so tickled for you! Such fun and a terrific creative outlet!ReplyDelete
