Carol, is your inner glamper coming out! By the time your glamping trip comes around, your gonna have your glamp on!!!! Woot Woot!




I actually found plastic martini glasses, though I am not a plastic type person I thought after a few martini's, plastic is probably a better option for me!

Carol, I use my washcloths, towels and rags to pack breakables, since I need them when I get to the campground, I'm not hauling extra stuff (except the glassware hehehe). Most hard core c-a-m-p-e-r-s won't understand the pleasure of having the extras along for the ride. But they make me feel good when I'm in the trailer, especially if its a cold rainy day.
Jane, I didn't use bamboo, I used a grasscloth shade (two) that I cut to fit and then glued to the ceiling over some of the bubble insulation, and then hot glued on some trim. Its a scissors and glue project I forget what I used to attach the bubble wrap to the ceilng, though. It was some sort of industrial calk adhesive.

Camilla, I'll be going out there tomorrow and will take more pictures with the ceiling.
Melissa, I have an awning stripe fabric on the front couch that coordinates with the Paris fabric. I haven't put in a chrystal chandelier yet (LOL here's when the men start screeeeming!!). But I am thinking of a pendant light with a drum shade that has a retro feel instead..
Jen it is so much fun!! Go for it, Glamp up your Burro

If I made it too girly, the man would probably get stuck in fetal position. But I am definitely making the design scheme all mine.

If you're going to be adding more photos, I'd like to request a couple of the front rock guard, too, please!

I just glued and stitched coordinating bead borders around a trouble light equipped with a buglight. It is now our main light in our screenhouse. Kevin even uses it when he camps by himself. Gets chuckles.

Pictures as promised. First the ceiling, and the front couch area. The ceiling is a 'scissors and hot glue project (described a few posts above).
The couch is covered with an awning fabric, and I used the same fabric for the shade. The shade is 'reverse rolled' and held in place with those flower clips at each end. I have a deep couch with enough room to sleep because I removed the bunk and the fiberglass mounting piece that was attached under the window. The back cushions are microfiber body pillow covers from Walmart. Pillow was made from a T-shirt with a cute graphic of a vintage trailer graveyard.

This is my rock shield cover. It was very easy to make. I measured the length and height of the sheild and added 1/2" to allow for the quarter-inch seams. I measured the flange and added 1" to cover the quarter inch seam, and then 3/4" for the hemmed edge. I put a piece of cardboard against the trailer and closed the shield so I coule trace the curve of the corners.
It was just a matter of laying out the dimensions and cutting the rectangle, then laying out my curved template on the corners and cutting them. I sewed it together and then put fringe on the edges. I also added little 'tabs' of material under the awing edge so I can clip a binder clip to the tab, and to the rock guard to hold it in place.
