»»»» unloved & outdated.. to shiny & new…a breakdown of our updo ««««
1. Behind this cleverly placed board was a huge hole in the wall, and sadly the vintage boarding used in 70′s Airstreams was not replaceable. Instead we restored with aluminum sheets (custom cut to fit the walls exactly (both #1 & #2) that we felt most closely resembled this time period and the Airstream aesthetic.
2. Another gaping hole in the wall.
3. This mustardy yellow hard plastic was on each curved end as well as by the kitchen window. We wanted an all over clean slate so we painted the entire inside white. (we actually painted 5 times because the walls and ceiling were also yellowed with age)
4. This wall was very thin, almost like cardboard and was damaged by water and ??… we replaced with hardwood and ultimately covered with our bison picture.
5. The original fridge was long gone and this was a cheapo electric only fridge, we needed a gas & electric fridge and upgraded.
6. These *&^% stickers were the bain of my existence for many, many hours. They were on every. single. surface. in the bathroom…and stuck like they had been on since the beginning of time.
7. The floors were linoleum, old, cracked and just resting on top of the sub floor, we installed a western cedar faux floor and love it.
8. The couch/bed cushions were 37 years old, enough said.
9. The curtains had seen better days, we used them as a template for the panoramic window and went with marine shades for the other windows.
10. The countertop was basic laminate, we replaced with butcher block.
The sink, which you cannot see, was a tiny, very shallow 2 basin sink. We replaced with a large square 10 inch deep sink with heavy duty faucet.
The stove (which you also cannot see) was avocado green and we had it powdercoated strawberry red/pink. (the letters on the outside of eddie, that spell out Argosy, are painted the same color…)
*** this is the only before picture we have, our others were lost so we showed you as much as we could***
