Leprechauna...I'm not sure if your referring to the inside of mine when you say crazy wallpaper....LOL But none of that is wallpaper...it's all paint. I'm anti wallpaper on any surface.....hate the stuff. Because if you've ever tried stripping wall paper it's no fun whatsoever. Paint is so forgiving...if you don't like it...you can always paint over it again.

I did see that trailer in some of my searching for redo inspiration. Don't care for the shells and pasta part....made several cigar boxes with macaroni glued on them in grade school and vacation bible school...think I got that outta my system way back then LOL But it is a cute trailer overall....and whoever took the time to glue all that stuff up there...I admire their determination...because it had to take alot of time.

As for the Gypsy trailers....I absolutely love them. If I found one...I do believe I'd hafta have it for myself. To restore. That would be a fun fun project. Only thing is....you'd hafta have a set of pullin horses...and all our horses are Barrel horses....they don't go slow haha.

Jersey...I was thinking of finding some wild, leopard type wallpaper. I have used steamers to replace the stuff in the past, and have also done lots of stenciling with paint.
The link to the gypsy trailer, looks to have some pretty cool map/wallpaper action, that could just not be replicated with paint. I like using both. Your trailer is going to be great!

I wish I had taken some pictures of my old foam, but the PO had all of my cushions done in Leopard print...I can only imagine there was some shag carpet and lava lamps in there at one time as well.

Well I've made that last seam (after workin on it til 3 am)...put the foam rubber back in....all zipped up. And now I hafta take it all back out again because it's a little big on the back cushion. When I took the old covers off...I noticed that some seams were 1/4 inch...and some were 1 1/2 inches. Don't know why it was done like that...but that's not how I sew. I try to have uniform seams everywhere. So....I now have to take it in about 2 inches on the underside of the back to make it fit. Was hoping for a first time fit. But that never happens anyway. So I'll pull it all out and then put it all back in a bit. Needed a break....Wrestlin those 6 ft long foam rubber pieces will wear ya out~!!!! LOL

hour or so later.....

All out...made some modifications...and wahlahhhhh all back together again. And it fits!!!! Yay!!! Im not real crazy about that pillow on the right tho....Not likin it. Or it needs somethin added to it. Oh.......I know.....More gawdy!!! that's it!!!! haha

The ugly pocket door. It really is ugly. And it's not even wood. It's kinda like formica countertop stuff. So...I set to work. But first a couple pics of just how ugly it really is.

Somewhere along the way....in my lil trailers history. Someone decided varnish would help. NOT

So I sanded the whole door....

Then painted it with a Gesso primer....so that acrylic paint would adhere to it.

Finally get to the color part of painting. Barn red....(these next photos were taken with my phone)

A little painters tape, and some gold paint.

Pull the tape off.....I'm likin it!

This is where I quit last night. Still have a few more things to do to it. But it looks much better than the old ugly lil door it was when I started.

Ok....the last of the bathroom door pics....
Alot more tape...for just a little more paint. I painted black in the stripes and then came back over that with more gold. All done except for the final sealer coat that I'll do later this evening after this has had a few hours to dry good.

We got a whole lot accomplished this weekend. More today than yesterday. Durin all the lovely rain (Thank You God!!!!) I sequestered myself in the trailer and worked all day.
We ripped out the kitchen cabinets...AND BOY AM I GLAD WE DID!!!!!! I'da never been able to stay in it if I'da known all this was behind the cabinets and I didn't clean it up...Oh My Gosh!!!!! Nasty!!!!!!!! Most of it was caused by the gas/electric fridge that vented up the wall and out the roof. But that's gone!!!! We are goin with just an electric fridge.

A lil Mr. Clean and hot water in a bucket....and a scrub towel.....I got most of it fairly clean....then I KILZ'd it anyway....just because I still had memories of that nasty stuff LOL

So then came the color.....

And then I worked on the upper cabinet doors. Had no idea where I was goin with this.....don't know if I'm done yet.....but I kinda like em.
