Caravan... getting there...

Are we there yet???

No, but it wont be long...

Me and Middlest have been painting today...

Mr F has been working on this for about 6 days and has declared that it was never worth it... I have declared, hopefully it will be worth it... the panelling on the front window hole looks super.

All the remaining wood effect is now Summer yellow. WHY DO CARAVAN MANUFACTURERS GO TO SO MUCH TROUBLE MAKING INTERIORS SO UGLY?????? Masses of fake wood, plastic, glue and beige...

My little blue kitchen. The cooker works! Mr F tried it, so thats brilliant! We wont starve at least.

The electrics have all been ripped out but we left the plugs in, more holes to patch else and I think we all need a break from it. We have bought a drive away awning that sleeps 4 to extend the room and offer day space for very sunny or very wet days. Hopefully we plan to head to the coast with Kayaks, buckets and spades this weekend for a few days away. 

I must order some red bobble trim for the curtains...

  1. I LOVE it Ren...I wish I could faerie transport myself from California to England to see it in person!!
    It is going to be a wonderful, Magical and amazing piece of work when you are done. I just love seeing your progress!!

  2. It's beautiful Ren, happy dayscap :D I'm going to be starting on mine on Friday after discovering that B&Q will cut the wood to size for me, woohoo :D

  3. Looks wonderful, Ren! And I agree about caravan interiors. What's with plastic 'regency style' cupboard knobs with fake gold trim, and fake wood grain?!! And shag pile carpet on the beige, or worse, pale pink?!! It's a CARAVAN for goodness sake. I reckon there's a market out there for basic UNPAINTED interiors, a 'we build it, you decorate' kind of situation!

  4. I LOVE this! Been following it's progress with such unexplained excitement that I feel it's half mine! Please have a paddle on my behalf...Sue.

  5. ohhh carrievan is looking good!
    i know what you mean about the interiors so i am glad that 'pretty pagan' came to us as a veggie transporter! we have had fun doing our interior although it has taken a long time (she is rather hugemongous!) but it very satisfying when i am laying cuddled up at night looking up at the sky from my little window :)

    i need to remember ric-rak for my curtains ;)

  6. WOW! This is brilliant! Love the colors inside and out--do I see SPOTS at the front of your caravan?! An homage to Dotty Spottle, I hope! :)
