It has been Day #1 of the 10 days we have left to get our camper ready for the road!
My mission for today was the window/wall.
A month or so ago it looked like.....
And finally - THIS!
Louis Dean had made it sturdy!
Now it was up to me to make it pretty!
I found an old ticking jumper I wore 20 years ago when homeschooling.
PERFECT window treatment.......??
We brainstormed over coffee. I gathered my materials and we each went to work on our respective areas! I can't even begin to explain what all LD did but it had something to do with 30 amps and 50 amps and the right plug.
This is how MY project turned out!
I used old calendar pages from 1993 and glued, stapled and did whatever it took to get them on the wall and the shelf. I'm not QUITE through yet! I will add the buttons and trims I have in mind - and on hand - in the morning!
We are using things we already have - for the most part - thus making this a very frugal project indeed!
The shelf is there for reasons known and understood by Louis Dean. He told me but I can't figure it out. Something to do with wall support and a soft spot in the the ceiling he had to repair. Needless to say this wall is stronger than the day the camper was BUILT!
The shelf will hold our spices - you know those tall containers you get at Sam's?
We have over two DOZEN of them so we won't need to buy new ones for the camper!
A spring rod solved the curtain problem. I layered in some room darkening fabric since I couldn't fit the blinds back up there.
Louis Dean is one happy camper!
The wall is DONE!
The electric is DONE!
The floor is DONE!
The outside is DONE!
I am as happy with how it turned out as I can be!
We are totally winging this camper redo deal and that in itself is kind of fun!
I love warm and cozy and I MUST have my little lights!
This is just an inexpensive plastic Christmas light with fabric glued on.
The bulbs are dipped in clear silicone.
I have dozens of these all over my house!
It's beginning to look like home!
And, Amber, if you are reading this I hope you are much encouraged at the progress we have made. She has been concerned about the quality of our living conditions. You can see this is going to be perfect for us!
I put the girl bunk all back together and will start on the boy bunk tomorrow.
I also need to fashion a window treatment for the sofa area.
Just LOOK at the broomstick skirt I found!
Cut in half it would be plenty big enough for the window.
Perhaps attach it with Velcro?
Or just keep with the idea of hanging it out of the cupboard door?
We worked hard today. I even did an hour of yard work after I finished in the camper.
It's so hot you have to wait til the sun goes down to do anything outside.
We actually are so tired we ate cottage cheese and bananas for supper!
Still time for a 'Closer' and then a little driveway sitting.
Bet we sleep WELL tonight!!
