Glamper Parking

  When we got married last summer, hubbie built me a “dance floor”.  We got married in the back yard, and built a deck over top of the existing kinda crumbling patio stones beside the house.   What you can’t see is that there is also a built in flower box with a giant tree…

Awning DIY

In the 70’s when Betty was built awnings were a little less high tech then they are today.  There is a C rail along the top of the front of her…. To be completely honest… ours is now red, and when we first put the trim on, we had no idea what this thing was…

Turning tables

Ok so I have posted multiple updates about the table in Betty.  It was the original before she was gutted and the only piece of actual furniture I salvaged.   What doesn’t show in any of these is due to nowhere but under the eaves in the backyard to store it the particle board underneath…

Whimsical door knobs

I have these amazing door knobs found at a winners many years ago on my coffee cupboard in the house I love them and have repurposed them for various things over the years.  However I really wanted something similar for the cupboards in Betty and knew I would never find them.  Soooo. While I try…

Polka dots polka dots polkadots

A couple of weeks ago I realized Betty had a definite theme going on not completely unintended.  POLKADOTS. I realized after I put the originally purchased comforter in her and hated it. Right colours, wrong everything else.  So polkadots it was  Then I redid the table for the umpteenth time. Yep!  More polkadots. I got…

Official maiden voyage

Ok.  So friends took Betty for a week, but we are not counting that. Past weekend hubbie and Boo and I took Betty up to lake Whitaker.  It is a Conservation area campground only about 40 minutes from home.  Rates were very reasonable as Saturday & Sunday night was only $80 for a 15 amp…

First trip and more progress

Friends rented Betty last week and took her on her first voyage.  Needless to say I was worried sick the first travel day.  Thankfully she arrived at their destination smoothly and my worries were for not. In the week away I found a new chandelier on kijjiji.  Can’t believe anyone would give it up for…

Miscellaneous.

Hundreds of miscellaneous tasks this weekend.  Betty moved out of the driveway for the first time since we brought her home… and I wasn’t with her!  Friends are taking her this weekend and wanted to make sure she towed no problems, so after moving all the miscellaneous construction stuff out of the way and some…

Dinette

Betty has been rented out for the coming weekend.  So, sadly I won’t be the one to take her on her inaugural first trip.  That being said I’ve managed to get a tonne of work done on her in the last week or so. Beginning with building the benches for the cushions that I covered…

Cabinet

So couple days ago I posted about new shelves for the fridge and air conditioner  And we finished it.  First hubbie cut a hole in the roof for ventilation and added an air vent cover Think he did this when I wasn’t home on purpose Then we added a shelf for the fridge sloped slightly…

Faking it.  Plywood floors turned hardwood

Sooo. We are camping in Betty next weekend, she is not nearly complete and hubby may be on strike.  My original plan for the floors was to find black and white tiles and create a retro diner look.  Last night after hearing hubby didn’t plan on building anything else before next weekend I decided to…
