Can't you just envision a group of burley deer hunters sitting around sipping tall, skinny, no-whip latte's and snacking on hummus on whole wheat crackers while they discuss the day's hunting exploits?

Designer camo required....
LOL, speaking of which. Have you seen the Airstream Argosy painted in Camo? Wish I had the pic handy.

I bought a '56 22' a few years ago that the PO had used a cloth and a bucket of dark stain to redo ALL the birch, got it all over the zolatone , appliances and aluminum trim inside. She had perfect skin and was 100% complete right down to paperwork . The end product was worth the labor at about 4 cents per hour. It also had aluminum wiring and black iron drain lines, but they were from the factory.

Hey, now you guys...don't you know, you can make anything work out in decorating if you just put your mind to it. You got big florals, but your worried about those camo junkie hunters messin up your ambiance??? Hey, you can make it work. In, fact they might just blend very nicely - let me show you how....

Okay, now I'm kind of nervous to post pics of our Argosy re-do... We're not sponge painting, but I hope the group agrees we do right by our camper and let it maintain its dignity. Be gentle with me!

I was hoping someone would give me a "nice" review on the sponge painted fellow on my floral couch


Have no fear, we're all having fun here!!

I did utilize an interior designer friend to help pic out our fabrics and colors, so however bad it may look, it all coordinates. We're trying to stay faithful to our Argosy's birth year of 1975, while not being too, umm, Brady Bunch. I'm pretty pleased with our choices so far. I'll definitely post pictures as we make progress. Do your worst! I'm not afraid!

It looks good to me! It could have been in bad shape prior to the "remodel". My Argosy had NO interior in it at all when I pulled her out of a hedge row. So I'm just doing the best I can with her.
