D I Y Pull-out Sofa Sleeper in Glamper RV

Pull Out Sofa Sleeper in Our Glamper Caravan Home — Part I   We’re hoping the third time is a charm, because that’s how many times Hubby has rebuilt this sofa sleeper/daybed in the caravan home we so lovingly refer to as Mermaid Mansion.  Unseen in these photos, there is a window seat on the opposite wall,…

Glamper Remodeling — Over Head Cabinet Construction

It’s been a while, and I’ve fallen waaay behind on the keeping of my blog.  I’m happy to be back at it, after months of remodeling and rebuilding the interior of our Retro Vintage Aljo we lovingly call Mermaid Mansion.  :  ) Nico, my husband, has been working tirelessly on constructing a ‘stow-away’ cabinet above…

Dining Room – Before & After

The feather trim I ordered to finish my caravan kitchen curtains–exquisite in several shades of Caribbean turquoise and earthy jade green–is just the right embellishment I needed to Glam up my kitchen to Island Glamping perfection. I love it! And while many think it was expensive,…
