|Hubby & bubby|
As soon as we got it home we(me and hubby) ripped out the 35yr old stunning orangy-brown carpet, removed the curtains which were adorned in same style and started cleaning madly. Anyway before we new it we had started removing all and drawers inside to give Delilah a coat of fresh white paint and the list goes on and on and on.
Not to mention all the stuff hubby did underneath.(wheels, brakes, painted whole undercarriage and so on)
So to cut a very long story short our minor face lift became major
reno(a retro reno).
Here is some pics of our "Delilah" at the start of the makeover...
|WOW ! I actually found something at spotlight|
that i liked....
|I can't wait to see it in it's place in "Delilah"|
|In the background- i found this cute tray in true retro style.|
In the foreground- the cutest set of coasters from www.rusticangels.co.uk/
Cake tray on right is from http://www.cathkidston.com/
|Isn't this just what every mum needs to |
hanging their holiday home..
|How cool is this coat rack i found on ebay. I thought this would|
be great opposite door as you walk into van, to hang
all those bits & pieces on as you come back from
|These cute tins will be perfect full of cookies for the kids|
and the big Kids(hubby). Also from Rustic Angels
|I picked up this pull out sink tap for a bargain on Ebay|
|Hubby plumbing up the sink|
|I came up with the idea to turn the small top bunk into|
a cot for our little girl, when she gets bigger, we just remove
the bars... Hopefully this works well!!
|Hubby gave shelves a new look|
|I was going to leave the sliding glass doors the original|
color, which is the one on left. But one day when i was
painting inside the cupboards blue, i found myself
painting one side to see which i prefer? Not sure.
This is my favourite alteration.
I Love it.. It was shelves which was
accessed from the other side which
is in our bedroom. A bit of a nothing
space, so i cut a oval hole in this
side which is right near dining
booth, moved shelves to suit
then but the back on. This will be
sooo handy for salt/pepper,
sauces, serviettes, cutlery, i wont even
have to get up !!!!
