A little bit of sunshine goes a long way

Hi all, our spirits are a little higher today!
BBQ night..yay.. citronella torches blaring, no mossies on us, & we are camping , we are campers lol.

We woke to a cloudy but on and off Sunshiny day, still a bit muddy but with gumboots on I am ready to face the day.
Washing time, using rain collected from the gazebo roof , a hand washing I will go.

OK now back to the Baby Bouse, re-carpeting the ceiling. MMM well not as easy as it looked.
Glue on ceiling ..glue on carpet ..and hold up and stick!!! first one done ( with a little help from a glue high). Lookin good!

The front where the speakers are will be a small timber shelf and also where the fridge side is will be over head cupboards so they will cover the not carpeted bits.

We cut some metal and pop riveted them over the light holes.We will have hanging battery charged LED lights/lamps so no need for holes :)
Next bit, more glue on the ceiling and then to put the glue on the carpet..back in and arms up and over next bit on, metal strip over the join..looking good, looking good well done us ( wow this glue is wiffy).

OK last bit, Glue on ceiling,,glue on carpet, up over, rub..arms aching,carpet twisting,,not going as planed. oh well its up and the metal strip in place n that's where its staying!
New little fridge in place with a shelf. The house batteries will be hooked up underneath and a little shelf over top..we are getting there.

That's enough for today & its started to rain again so all power tools away.
Until next adventure

  1. I've just found your blog, and I love it! This post is soooo inspiring to me--I want to do the same thing, just tear the ugly guts out of an old camper and redo it in patchwork and polka dots. I can't wait to see your results!
