A labor of love

Rehabing the trailer began with first things first... my roof. For the better part of two days I scraped, patched and sealed the roof of my trailer. After that it was time to work on the interior. I ripped out carpet, vacuumed, washed, wiped, knocked out numerous hornets nests, removed mice nests and droppings - and that was just the cleaning. I patched inside parts of the roof, secured boards, removed cupboard doors and hinges, painted and put down new flooring. In case you need a refresher, you should go here to see some before.

And here is the after ... so far.

Now I'm working on the beatifying and accessorizing. Mom and I have begun our sewing lessons and I'm happy to report we've already argued once!

My first project was a cover for my orange body pillow. Yay! 

Since then I've whipped up some curtains. As always, pictures will be posted at a later date.

That trailer is the most awesome project EVER! I can't wait to see it when you're finished.

We're taking our RV out west in June. You'll have to wave at any Minnie Winnies you see driving by!

Nice cushions!! Carolina is looking good. What's your color scheme and are you going with the coastal decor?

Lexy! This looks soooo good! I cannot believe how awesome it turned out! I desperately need one of those to get away once in a while! Awesome job!
