Restoration of Interior

Well, I've finally finished about 95% of my restoration which included some repairs, but mostly restoring the interior and updating with new axles, converter, brakes, tires, hitch, brake away switch, etc. Now, I've got some exterior things to do. The pictures I'm posting are before and after. We have a 'French Country' theme, thanks to the fantastic skills and gifts of my wife. It truly is a home away from home. Enjoy!

That's a very unusual and inviting interior. My hat is off to your wife for her great ideas!

Absolutely beautiful. I really like the counter top wood. You really should give consideration to what happens inside the trailer during a tow. I cannot even keep a drawer in or the stove grates in place,

Thanks for all your compliments and comments. The galley countertop is made of old wine crates with embossed winery names. I glued them on solid wood and grouted them with a somewhat flexible wood filler. I've towed it numerous times, most recently to and from a campground about 45 miles away. So far, no problem. If it messes up, I'll just figure out how to do it differently. Since this is my first attempt at restoration, I've got a lot to learn and a lot more experience ahead of me!

I love that! Not exactly my style, but I really love it! Can I borrow your wife? I've got my own but she (by her own admission), is not very style concious.
