Following being totally inspired by George Clarke's Amazing Spaces, I decided the only way forward was to undertake my own small space that we could use as our home from home at the Goodwood Revival each year. Mindful of budget the ideal small space was a 1989 Elddis caravan..so this is my project of choice. Photos will show progress from the original brown, beige & fake wood to the final result :)
I found one or two key pieces that were going to be my decor inspiration. Something to build the whole design of the caravan around.

The next step is to paint everything white..... ....and start to re-cover the faded draylon cushions. Old jumpers do the trick nicely :)
An off-cut of worktop, a new sink and hob cheaply sourced from eBay and a tap found in the shed mean the kitchen area can start to take shape. A retro Coca-cola sticker livens up the fridge.......the coats and coats of white paint continue!
The coats of white paint continue...... The wooden panellled doors were reversed and painted pale green or red for the ones in the kitchen area and then smart chrome handles attached. A cheap mirror from The Range was covered in 1970's Beano magazines and will add much needed light & reflection inside the caravan.
White paint all complete. Curtains made and hung. Kichen doors in place. Other cupboard doors to fit and then we can start laying the floor :)
I got a remnant of Black and white checkerboard vinyl. There wasn't quite enough to do the whole floor so we planned it carefully so that it finished by the door. A black carpet tile then fills the gap and doubles as a doormat..perfect.
The completed project. It has been so much fun to do and I absolutely love the end result. It will be our perfect home from home at the Goodwood Revival each year.
