Shasta compact update

The BG is coming along on replacing the water damaged wood in the camper.

AS SOON as he is done I am going to paint the interior a fresh coat of white, we’ll install a new floor, and then the sewing of the curtains and cushions shall commence.

We’ve pretty much decided on painting the exterior red on the bottom, white on the top, with the signature Shasta Z stripe being silver.

Here’s the cushion fabric I ordered.  I picked it up last night.

While shopping around I have been keeping my eye out for camper goodies!

I found a cute red polka dot rug at walmart,  some awesome melamine dishes at target,  and some adorable vintage pillow cases while antiquing with Mom.

I think I have decided to use my Darla fabric for the curtains??

It’s so fun! =)

Later Gators!

    Don’t forget to treat the curtains with some scotchguard so they don’t fade in the sun. It is going to look great!

    So, so cool. This morning I passed by a trailer on sale on the way to work. I am so tempted to stop by and take a closer look.

    You are going to have a blast! I bought a 62′ Mobile Scout six weeks ago (the Red Rover) he’s been camping 3 times and the outside paint is complete (silver top, red bottom- shasta design) used an air gun and did it ourselves with AMAZING results and including the gun the paint job cost about 100 bucks!! 🙂

Please come visit my new blog, Ric Rac and Polka Dots. You will read in my profile how I dream of owning a trailer just like yours! Well, until then, I’ll watch your progress and dream of my own trailer!
