Flaunt Your Red Friday

Hi, Not Much to Look at Right Now....But Here is My RED Vintage (old / new stock) Red Sink that will be going into my Counter Very Soon! I Found this By Accident when we were in Indiana just looking for trailer lights.....and there was a rack of three "old stock" New Red Enamel Metal Sinks, Tags still in place from the 60's! (I kept it in my memorie file) I Could'nt Believe it! We offered $15 and they said yes!

I'll Be:

My Next Progect Is......

Putting down this Mosaic of Vintage Travel State Plates and Souvenir Tile chards that will become my Countertop

View from Front to Back

Vintage Looking (Lowes) Black and White Tiles For Floor
Bench Seats Are On Either Side ...will be Showing More Pics of Those Soon
The Seats Are HIS and HERS Beds that Slide Out to become about the Size of a Queen the entire width of trailer which is about 6 ft.
Since the Trailer a 1964 Shasta Compact 10 x 6 (not including the hitch) would be a total of 12 ft, Came with what they call Wings....for the back outside , look like Thunderbird, but, did come with appliances...I looked for a vintage stove, but they are hard to find, so I decided to Re-Do the whole Layout with Modern Appliances, maybe I can Hide them with a Little Vintage Curtain on a Tension Rod just Under the Sink.

Nice Kitchen Counter Top Area where Sink will be cut/set into, the Microwave Oven will go (middle), Tiny Refrigerator (right)
and Two Drawers already there, and (below /middle) will be either A large Drawer or a Basket, If I Can Find One That Fits....crossing my fingers on that one! On the Left will be the Original Door to cover Shelves for all those Dish Washing Essentials! I Will Be Buying a New Electric 2 Burner Removeable Stove Top...I Saw A Nice One At WalMart with Solid Cast Iron Burners, I Decided to this so that I Can Have Plenty of Room to Spread Out and Use when I'm Not Using the burners , I will put it Away and I wll Have the Whole Counter to the right of the sink. I Think this will really work out well for me. Since I Do Love to Bake (believe it or not) when I'm camping, I will Also be purchasing a small Convection Oven that can also be stored in the closet when not in use. As You Can See....My Mind Has Been Busy....As...A....Beee trying to think of everything. I'm Dreamin Big on A Small Budget! But I'm getting there, Slowly but Surely! I Plan on Blogging as Much as Possible Along the way, Please Stay Tuned! More To Come!

Hi! Thank you for stopping by my blog for a visit. It is so nice to meet you! I grew up in Hell, Michigan....

How fun that you are refurbishing the vintage Shasta Trailer. Growing up in Michigan we spent summers camping until I was a freshman in High School. Then my parents bought a campground in Fitchburg and we spent our summers running the campground. Great memories.

I love the mosaic you are going to create as your counter top! That will be fabulous. Have to done mosaics before?

How fun to be creating a cottage trailer. You know I have always wanted to do this. I was just talking to my husband about it the other day and low and behold I find your blog!. As a youngster my family would go camping a lot, it was what we did as a family we graduated from a tent to a trailer and I think that is when I started dreaming of decorating a trailer. I think maybe in a way its like a doll house or play house. I will be back many times to see how you are coming alone. By the way love, love your red sink.
Have a great day,

Love your style & all the perfect touches you're piecing together! Your "tin can cottage" is going to be simply dreamy. Can't wait to see more. Your blog design makes me smile-especially the glitter & vintage print! It's very heart warming & reminds me of receiving a handmade card in the mail, from a close friend. I'm subscribing as a follower-because I don't want to miss your journey. What fun!
