Chelan Trailer Re-Do

Some friends purchased a waterfront lot with a somewhat pathetic little trailer on it.  They joked whenever asked about the trailer purchase "oh, we don't talk about that".  My friend, Kathy was itching to get her hands on that trailer and make it a wonderful lake retreat for their friends and family when visiting Lake Chelan.  Kathy enlisted me to help because we are both sort of crazy that way.  She talked them into a small budget and off she went shopping!  I hit the thrift stores with abandon!  She took on the big stuff like the in stock kitchen cabinets at Home Depot, the pergo flooring, new shower enclosure, vanity etc.  Together we are very proud of how we transformed the trailer into what is surely the cutest trailer on the lake!  I don't have "before - before" pictures.  There was a wall between the tiny kitchen and the tiny living room.  We took that out to open up the space.  That alone made ALL the difference!  White paint on that wood paneling, new floor and WOW!  It brightened up and we all started getting excited.  Here are some photos (with my cell phone - lacking quality!)
Old trailer exterior
Paint, new stairs, railing, window trim
Old entrance hall
Painted and refreshed!

Thanks to a garage sale down the road, Kathy found an old painted board and worked her magic!

 The details in the fun art we found

Of course baskets make for great storage in the small space
We could not wait to paint over the old harvest basket wallpaper!
There was a wall in front of where the fridge is standing.  
Two tiny rooms became one large great room.

 We decided on a nature theme for most of the art

 This crab turned out to be my favorite!
 Goodwill table - has a driftwood texture and appearance.  $22!  Perfect!
 Most of the art we found in old books and recycled our frames.
