Our Baby she's called Caper Chicks

This is what she looked liked when we bought her. I then stripped her down to empty shell and started my journey. Last September and October I redid the plumbing and some electrical and also sent cushions out to be remade from scratch I will post some pictures now that she is 99% ready it will take some time as I am not quite sure how this posting works.
Always proud
Fay

That's one wild paint job! Looks like a lot of work went into your renovation and now you have something truly unique and all yours. Have fun with your baby!

Pretty cool
Tell us more about your wrap.

So the wrap is a vinyl carbon fiber that is pre glued you use a heat gun to apply and it moulds even around curves and corners. I had a shop do the outside but I did the inside cupboards with a gold carbon fiber. I will post some pictures of the inside over the weekend.

That will stand out in any crowd. How original! Was the forest green color part of the finish, or did you change your mind after you painted it green?

Also, it's hard to make out on my screen, is the table picture any particular lake?

I'd sure like to see pictures of the interior when you're finished. In fact more pictures of everything! Good Job!

Tom
