VINTAGE TRAILER REDO - TAKE ONE

Call us crazy--it won't be the first time, and it probably won't be the last time either.  We are just those kind of people.  This is our latest project.

It will be fabulous!  I just know it.  If I could just decide on a theme or a color or a name.  Maybe it's too soon.  I will keep you posted.

My daughter Jamie wants a vintage trailer like that so she can have a "store" on wheels!
You're a brave soul!

It seems you and I have something in common.
JUST THIS WEEKEND-- Honey and I bought our own Vintage Camper!
Kolein, wanted me to see yours, so here I am!
Do you know what Age,Make, Year?

Ours had only a bill of sale- I've no IDEA WHAT KIND, YEAR, OR MAKER.

Like you-- I just want to get it decorated!!!!!!!!!!

Theme, Color-- no idea.
Name--- well, we have a few to choose from and narrowed it down.

We'll see what it turns out to be.

Kind of like naming a dog-- you have something in mind and then at the last minute you change it, because it FITS THE LITTLE PUPPY YOU'VE COME TO LOVE!

Can't wait to see what you do with yours.

Are you a Sister on the Fly? Sister #1509 here. Mine will be done in kitschy English cottage (thanks to Happy Loves Rosie, I'm now in love with all things Cath Kidston). I named her "The Burrow" (the Weasley's house in Harry Potter in case you didn't know that) and I think it fits. Have fun with your restoration ... there are quite a few of us taking this journey! :)

PS: I can recommend the vintage shasta trailer forum at proboards even if you don't own a Shasta ... lots of great renovation help/ideas!
