Today my 14 1/2 year old hound dog passed. It is a very sad day.

I saw a photo of a metzendorf with shelving over a window. I decided to replicate it. Thought it would be good for hanging the curtains under. I still need to finish them. I thought that would be easier installed. I am going to make skinny shelved over the front and rear windows as well.

The door seems like it used to be white, but there was very little paint left. So I decided to just polish it. The framing around the door is pretty rusted. It was white, but I may paint it a silver/aluminum. There is also a bad glop of calk on the top of the window that I need to clean up and replace. The window on the door is kinda frosted. The door handle is original. I am going ot strip the paint on the aluminum above the door so the upper panels match on both sides of the camper

Spent the day...what am I saying..weekend sewing. I am still going to put batting in the cushions. But here is the first set in the dorf. I have one more bottom to do! The cushion on the back was the first one I did. I can pull it in more since that one is lil baggy....but also might fill out with the batting. We'll see. This is the first time I have ever done this...So it was an adventure.

I have decided to put in vinyl flooring, sigh, until I find the budget for linoleum. I found a really retro piece of blue speckle vinyl for less than 20 bucks...1/10 the cost of linoleum. I am still floundering on whether or not to use something that bridges into this decade and ties all the colors together. Will have to post photos tomorrow.

Today I started on the floor...no way was the linoleum going to come all the way up...so I decided to just lay new subflooring. It didn't take too long...since there isn't much floor! Then I started on the ceiling...seemed warm enough. I primed the ceiling and used some paint I had from the house. The colors don't come out so well in the photos...looks better live.

The camper originally had linoleum tile floors. Linoleum mainly comes in sheets now. The product is environmentally friendly...unlike vinyl. It is made from a schmultz of linseed oil and saw dust. I love the colors. So what is the problem you say... cost. The cost of the flooring in squares is between $5-7 a square foot. I don't need that much...but vinyl is about $1 a square foot. Being environmentally friendly ain't cheap!!
I lean towards the Forbo Marmoleum Click tiles.
