Today was a beautiful day to work on my Scamp trailer and I had to share my progress! Today I actually cut the carpet piece that will go in the living area. I did it myself!
But first I have to show you what I did with this ugly hole where the furnace used to be.
I cleaned it out the best I could and tucked some stray wires out of the way before placing this cola crate inside.
I also had an old wine crate that I picked up at a thrift store and thought it might fit on top of the cola crate.
Would you look at that? They both fit! I will have to figure out a way to anchor them to the fiberglass. They will make cute shelves with a yardstick barrier across them and a curtain to cover the space.
Now for the carpet. I brought some contractor’s paper out to the Scamp to make a template, but realized that all I needed to do was take measurements and then do the cutting in the house. If I had a workshop space I would have done it there but the kitchen floor worked just fine.
This is the area I needed to cover. Hubby had already done the “upstairs.”
Yukky, huh? That is glue residue from the old carpet. It has a solid floor, though!
|Step up to the “upstairs.” It’s a two-story, two-bedroom trailer. . .just kidding.|
Here’s the part I laid down.
Yes, there are wrinkles and uneven places. I am letting the carpet sit a couple of days in the heat so it will relax before I make the final cuts and glue it down. And hubby didn’t have to do it!
I couldn’t resist dragging the cushions out of my storage building and putting the new cushion covers on a couple of them. I’ve had them packed away for over two years! I had to give myself and you a sneak preview.
Isn’t that fabric cute? And it looks so great with the wall color! I am SO excited! I can’t wait to get it all finished and put together.
I’m going to leave you with this picture. Try to guess what I will be doing with this old metal tray.
Give up? Stay tuned!
