Pretty as a Pearl!

You may remember a few weeks ago we shared some images of the exterior of our vintage travel trailer we are in the process of renovating.  I had quite the adventure going to pick her up and bring her home.  In case you missed it, you can read about it here .

Before we share the demo process with you, I want to share some of the "BEFORE" pictures we had made of "Pearlene."  In case you didn't know, we did decide to give her a name.  Josh's grandmother's name was Lillie Pearlene, and when we get finished, she's going to be "as pretty as a pearl."  We plan on making her exterior a shiny new white-hence the name Pearlene.  

As you can see in the pictures, she's seen better days.  She has some exterior rust, a few dings and her inside leaves a little to be desired.  We also learned that a carnie had her before we did.  Josh found a love letter and a picture inside when he got ready to demo the interior.  I've said it before-we LOVE things that have a story.  You can't buy a brand-new trailer and get that kind of history.  Take a peek at some of the before pictures and see if you can see why we consider her a diamond in the rough!  

Next up, Josh will take you inside as he starts the demo process.  #demoday coming up soon!
