Since then I've been cleaning and adding all her vintage accessories and purchasing what else she needs. I've waited and waited to do her official reveal pics because I wanted her to be truly done when I did. However, I'm not sure if that day will ever come! The tall one still has to tinker with some of the electrical and reinstall a few light fixtures. He replaced the tail lights this week and now one of us has to install the panelling in the storage room so we can put in shelves and start packing. We leave for the lake in 3 sleeps... yeah. What gets done will get done and so I've let go of my "perfect picture" dreams and you get to see her now as she is.
Here is the dining area :) It obviously also turns into a bed. I just painted the table today with Krylon Plastic Fushion. I'm quite impressed with the results. It went right over arborite and covered well. I just used a paper bag (as a fine grit sandpaper) to smooth in between coats.
I'm pretty excited about the clock you'll see on the shelf to the left. It was my mother-in-laws and we were able to grab it from the basement stash when we first got married. I've stored it since then waiting for the perfect place to display it and it's perfect in Elsie! In the mirrored case on top there are fiber optic flowers that light up and turn different colours. It's magical.
The door to the outside.
The kitchen. We left the stove the original colour. I'd still like to paint the counter top white but don't relish taping off and spraying in an enclosed place.
The living room/master bedroom :) The couch pulls out into a bed and the bunk comes down.
Magazine rack stocked with some good reads for the lake!
We're hauling her way up North at the end of this week and I'm sure there will be many more pics to come! I'm also hoping to do a post on the fun random gifts we received from friends that "just belonged in Elsie!"
