well i decided to keep it in the gold/beige range its the 12" by 12" tiles with a million little ones in it there are random black tiles in the mix....i tried to take a photo but didn't come out well....will work with the light colour wood and look good with whatever colour curtains i make for it. if i like it might make a new side dinette table and tile it too!

Sounds glamperous!

And opposite my approach, which is definitely more "ham" than "glam".

But I think the same thing motivates all of us when dinkin' around with these trailers- it's the "playhouse" we never had when we were kids, and by jingo, it's going to be just the way we always dreamed one to be!

My trailer was invited to appear on that show but wasn't deemed classy enough. Or was it me that wasn't classy enough? I forget...

But next week there's a casting call for "Trash: We Have Lives Too!", and I have high hopes for that one.

Ah yes Deryk - money, money and time!

Could be we need a real life definition of these little units. How about................ "A Fibreglass Camper is a mere hole in the air which, when surrounded by fibreglass, becomes something into which one feels privileged to pour time and money."

sounds kinda like the definition of a boat... a hole in the water that you pour money into (and time)

Hi Deryk,
How about the Olde Brooklyn Lantern, as seen on TV? (https://www.oldebrooklynlantern.com/) The website video is a bit cheesy but the lantern is pretty nice for the money ($14). I bought one last Christmas at our CVS drugstore. It's made of lightweight aluminum and runs LED lights that can range from soft to bright. I think it'll be just the ticket to add a rustic touch to our camping experience without the danger of kerosene.

Having backpacked for many years we used a small candle lantern
(Candle Lanterns: - Backpacking at REI - FREE SHIPPING With $50 minimum purchase.) similar to the ones others have been posting for far fewer dollars. This lantern continues to be our favorite at the picnic table as it puts out a soft romantic glow with enough light to work or play. None of those huge, harsh light camp lights for us.

Your glamping "playhouse" is really taking shape!

Happy Glamping!
Gilda

Hello

The only thing about them I don't like is batteries lol... something extra to carry around. Now my dad gave me a tealight candle that is shaped like those but smaller... maybe a few of them would work... will keep looking lol

thanks

On tile backsplashes....
I like the idea, and as others have commented, keeping the weight down on the project would be ideal. Our 38footer we full time in lists slightly (ok, i'm joking) to the kitchen side due to all the bling. Thank goodness for hydraulic leveling jacks!

On Candle Lanterns...
The REI ones ROCK. Very well made. We have two and use them for emergencies as a last resort (after battery units have been drawn down).

The BORRBY style brings back memories
My wife and i playing cards in the tent,
Wife says she's hot
My mind wanders...
Few minutes later she says it again.
I look over and there is a puddle of candle wax forming on the outside of the covers on her back.
,( bummer. I was all excited for naut.
