Let the purging continue...
We are nearing the end of the paint-stripping saga (finally)! And it is looking great... so we'll save the photos for the surprise ending :) Lots of folks have asked us why we are bothering to strip the paint since it is such a pain. It is hard to explain unless you have been inside Blue. When we walked inside with just the white paint, it felt like any old RV. We wanted to feel like we were in an airstream and to expose the shiny aluminum on the inside that makes it so iconic on the outside! We hope that light and colors will reflect in fun ways in the metal throughout the interior.
We have been trying to seal up the airstream so that it will be weather-tight before we put in our new floor and everything else. J replaced this crapper job (above) that someone did. He cut out another piece of aluminum from the old fridge and riveted it in place! It looks so much nicer :)
While each coat of citristrip is setting up (6-8 hours), we like to dream and plan! We've gone through a lot of floorplan ideas for Blue in the last few months, tape measure in hand. Currently we are designing the kitchen and bar area. Our "big" house is decorated for the holiday and feels warm and cozy inside. Hope you and yours are enjoying the season :)
