After Photos of Stella- Height of Vintage Mobile Shop

New cushions, new paint, new curtains.

                                                   Re-did the cabinets to have vintage fashion ad's. 
                                           Cutting out pictures from 1940's Good Housekeeping was fun!
I used vintage suitcases as shelves! Thanks Pinterest for the idea ;)

Clothing rack!

A cedar wall! 
This took the longest of the trailer since my father had to measure and cut each one to fit& it is my favorite part of Stella.

Another view :)

And the floor re-done! And a cute curtain to cover the A/C :)

 Go HERE for the BEFORE PICTURES if you missed those.

TADA!!! Meet Stella

Before pics of Stella -Vintage Mobile Shop

Here are some before pics of Stella, 13" 1972 Scotty Serro.
She was in great condition when we bought her.
Dawn, the previous owner took good care of her and used her for kayak/fishing trips.
So I knew the tires and lights were in good condition.
Stella has some hail damage on the exterior, but I think it adds to her personality.

We took the old floor off, tore down some old wood, tore out some cabinets.
New paint on the inside, new curtains, new cushions, new lighting, polished the outside up.

I can't tell you how many nails, screws, bolts, wood trims we went through to fix the interior up.
Many runs to Home Depot, our local handyman store and more that Hugo and my dad did.

Several weekends, weeknights. I had to say good bye to a social life for awhile to get her finished.
And let's just say it's hard especially hard to get anything accomplished with a new toddler.

Stella took some blood from us all. Sweat. Bruises. Mosquito bites. Torn up knuckles.
All for the love of Stella.
We have bought her back to life and I can't wait to share the adventures we will have together.

The debut of Stella is tomorrow August 4th at Shine in the Heights, for White Linen Nights.
Here is the event page on Facebook if you are in town this weekend! 

I'll have the after pictures posted hopefully on Sunday! 
Stay tuned :)
