If you follow me on Instagram (and you do, right?), you may have noticed that I've got a few week's lag time between when I do something and when I actually get around to blogging about it. I could blame it on standardized testing season, or on this nice weather, but it's actually just laziness. These days, I've been feeling less ambitious and more willing to waste time relaxing. It's been great for me, but it doesn't make very exciting blog content.
BUT! I have some camper progress that I haven't shared yet! And after all the stupid prep work, it's nice to finally see something changing colors in this thing. As you can see in the photos, all our cabinets were covered in this lovely faux-wood film that was not at all pleasing to my eye and had to go.
The new Seattle Streetcar line opened in our Capitol Hill neighborhood recently. The streetcar is kind of fun to ride, and it takes us from about a block away from our house, all the way through First Hill, Chinatown, Japantown, and to Pioneer Square. Pioneer Square is the oldest part of Seattle, even though all of Pioneer Square burnt to the ground in 1889. These are all the building that were rebuilt after that.
Time for another progress update on the camper!
In case you missed it, we bought a camper, made plans for a cosmetic renovation, and began removing rubbish and prepping the cabinets for white paint. Unfortunately, we had an obstacle in our way with these goofy blue fabric panels in the cabinets. They matched the Motel 6-looking floral nightmare in the rest of the camper, but they weren't really what we were going for, so we ripped them out.
When we removed them, we figured out they were just really thin plywood panels wrapped in blue fabric that was stapled on the back. At first, we thought it would be easy to remove the fabric and staple the panels back in place.
