The ride home from Virginia did not go well. Thank goodness my uncle was with me because we ended up half-stranded on the side of I95 waiting for roadside assistance for 4 hours. We were able to travel, very slowly, 2 miles up 95 to Ladysmith Tire and Auto where they had to keep the camper for about 4 weeks trying to find tires and fittings, only to end up completely rebuilding the axel. Geeze!!
Now my baby is back in Delaware ready for a facelift and a new, exciting life as a Mobile Fabric Boutique.
I wish I could say I did it, but, alas, my stud muffin hubby got to work tearing out all of the original fixtures, cabinets, walls and ceiling. I did help…a little. I am so great at sweeping up debris lol.
Anyway, at this point we are almost finished tearing the walls out. I am leaving the “bunk beds” to use as shelving and also leaving the table at built in benches. My hubby is going to build me an extended table topper so I can have a cutting area. We are going to do bead board on the walls and the whole inside will be a bright, clean white. I am planning to paint the exterior white and touch up the golden areas with a soft yellow. I would also like to add a retractable awning (yellow and white stripe of course!) and chalkboard paint the inside of the door. I plan to install a solar panel so there will be no need for an electrical hook up when I travel.
I am so excited for this to come together and I hope you will be here to see it all come together. If you have any questions or would like to book The Pineapple Stitchery for a guild meeting, retreat, ect. please visit the Contact page of the website. I would love to hear from you!
