She's HOME!!





Serendipity Gypsy is home. Please come in for the tour! Understand she has just arrived back home, so she does NOT have any junky find charm yet or curtains, and many of the final touches.  With that said.... COME ON IN!! Welcome to the dining area!! I figure I can sit about 6 friends on the bench seats, perhaps have a glass a wine or two! I love the table, with the metal stripping (so vintage!), has A/C, vintage cone lamps on both sides of the back window.  The bench seating will fold out and come together in the middle and makes a full size bed. Underneath the seating is all storage. I will for sure need that to bring back my finds from Roundtop this fall! 


The kitchen area. Stove, refrigerator with sink and water! A nice to have!  Notice above the window storage area with sliding doors. All restored back to the original look. 
 
All woodwork stained to Honey Birch - just like it was in 1962!
Storage closet .. he added the detail above the closet - Light shines over the kitchen sink. Closet holds the porta potty and the water tank for the sink! 
Her new Texas license plate... I am very proud of the install of the A/C mount, very nicely! I did not want to lose a window of light so LOML figured a way to mount A/C on back since the entire back wall had to be rebuilt.  New tail lights and side lights as well. 

AND LAST BUT CERTAINLY NOT LEAST!! I want to thank my LOML (LOVE OF MY LIFE) for making me dreams always come true. 
 You are my world, my best friend and I am so proud you are all MINE! 


If any of you need help with a vintage trailer remodel, I highly recommend the guy who did the work on her in far North Texas!  Leave a comment if you want his contact info and if you do not want his info leave me a comment anyway and let me know what you think of her new do!

Happy Tuesday!

Hi Valarie,
Serendipity Gypsy looks wonderful! It's so nice to see that you wanted to restore her back to her original 1962 look. I think it makes her even more special. I love the fabric on the bench seating. I look forward to seeing her again after you add all your Valarie touches!
Have a sweet day,
Elizabeth

So very cute! I was thinking, if I had one of my own, I could send the grandkids out there for Thanksgiving dinner. Our house is small and I've been thinking about how to stretch seating. And here in central Oklahoma, like north Texas, it's usually fairly warm at Thanksgiving! Annie

She's precious! I think the restoration back to all the original wood is great, I know she will look perfect when you put the final touches on her and she's all dressed up! Can't you just feel her shining with pride! Congratulations.
