I wanted to add sheves quickly so I can start using it. I'll do more custom shelves later. I had the folding metal shelves in the basement and they fit perfectly. I secured them to each other and the wall with large plastic zip ties and its quite stable. I cut out a piece of wood for the bottom over the wheel and put some of my left over flooring over it. Looks clean and its funtional. The odd thing on the bottom shelf is my 1950s 12v swamp cooler. It works! and with the Fantastic Fan I added, its nice and cool on warmer days.

But wait...there's more!

Here's what the solar panel and FF look like from the exterior. I think I'll paint the black wires on the solar.

The Vintage style awning is in this bag I made with all the stakes, rope, etc. I also made a little matching awning to go over the gravel guard. I'll take picture of it open later this week at Lake Oroville.

I'm working on this shiny, glittery tire cover. Its a work in progress so probably won't finish it in time to take to my Sisters On the Fly event this week.

I have a lot of cowgirl, "Sisters on the Fly" decals to add to the exterior. More to come! For now, I'M POOPED!

I do like to shop the junk stores. And "Collect" (Ha, ha). My husband says I probably still have my first dirty diaper saved in the attic. Thanks for the kind words.

Thanks Steve and Rosemary. I had planned to use Allure too, but when I went to purchase it, they didn't have the Allure in my local store and had this other brand. I'll have to look at the box and see what it is. It was cheaper though and I really liked it because its 4' long and I didn't have to have seams. It went in really easily and is holding up well so far. So easy to live with and better than carpet for sure.
I painted the fridge and the magnetic backsplash with Rustoleum primer and then Rustoleum Ultra Color 2x in "Apple Red".

Donna, we have a daughter in Portland and my hub's college roommate. We get to Portland fairly often. So I've got a feeling we'll meet even if I can't make it up for the gathering. You're my kinda people too. Your profile picture says it all.

Thanks Vicky. It has a red clear plastic handle that reminds me of a suitcase I had as a kid. I found this one on EBay and it was about $15 I think. I had plastic left over from the spacer I made for the Fantastic Fan so I cut and used that for the shelves. Even the door that has the elastic pocket holds my brush and hair stuff. Its really convenient to have there and just the right size. The bottom of the suitcase (back when its on the wall) had stains.I had some cow boy fabric and lined the back interior wall with it. Used 3M spray glue to put it in.

On reflection, now I know why I can't sleep at night. My mind is always racing with new ideas.

You're making me miss my "Bean". (Coffee theme)so much! He's sitting in his storage shed wondering why we've forsaken him for a 21 ft Winnebago Minnie complete with 26 inch flat screen TV and bathroom complete with shower, stool, closet, sink. It's because Mr.B doesn't like a small camper. I can see I'm gonna have to learn to hitch Bean up myself and go somewhere!! I put my blood, seat and tears into that sweetie and I wanna camp in him!

The picture looks like these shelves are leaning, but they're not. Its actually straight when I look at. But then maybe that's because I had a couple of margaritas before I looked at it last.
