Now that all the wood work is done, I'm ready for the last stretch of inside work. The current countertop is a kind of grey linen look that I find really unappealing. Wayback last year I purchased some of the soon to be discontinued and no longer available Formica pattern Boomerang in the color Aqua. I was able to pick up at 4x8 sheet of boomerang from home depot for only $35, and have had it stored in my basement ever since.
Lately I've also become enamored of the idea of having a tin backsplash. Looked at all the patterns but nothing was really grabbing me. I was considering just going with plain when I happened upon this faux tin paneling that is actually a thermoplastic. I like the wave pattern as it complements my water/agua theme. I also like that it's a little contemporary.
Hopefully this will get installed this weekend.
Once this project is finished it will be on to reupholstering the dinette benches. I was able to get a great deal on some high quality sign vinyl that will be upcycled for this purpose. $5 for enough to do the benches and to basket weave a mat for outside. Thank you to my friend jenny hurth at Elbow Grease Designs. Isn't this great. It's a graphic of the Art Deco buildings of South Beach in Miami.
Accessories. I've scored a few accessories for Aguadream in the past few weeks as well. There are a couple folks on the Vintage Shasta Trailer Forum who make magazine racks and other items for Shastas with the S cut in. I had purchased a magazine rack from one earlier this year. Decided to spread the love around and bought a napkin/utensil holder and a customized magazine rack from another member. Both are still accepting orders. If you're interested post a comment and I'll send you their info.
I also picked up some melamine plates bowls etc.... I know think they may be a bit too busy with all that will be going on with other elements. Or what the heck, it's just camping right?!
