Spring Cleaning Our Airstream

Shiny again!

Shiny again!

George and I have been doing some major spring cleaning around the ol’ Airstream. We washed the Airstream, planted flowers, pulled weeds, and at 11:00 last night I decided I needed to recaulk our shower. Home improvement projects are like that. You start one and then realize you need to do five more.

The Before!

The Before!

It all started with our air conditioning system. It broke at the end of last summer. It was almost cool enough to where we didn’t need it, but not quite. So we bought a portable one instead of the rooftop unit. The portable one was less than half the price of the rooftop unit, but it did not work as well. The first one we had also had a piece fly off in the middle of the night. I woke up screaming. I’m pretty sure I lost a year off my life.

Since we have Bambi, we were really worried about it getting too hot in our tin can, so we shelled out the $600 dollars for a new rooftop unit. Or at least, George did. He’s been working a ton lately and that money went to a good cause.

Be careful!

Be careful!

Well, after we fixed the rooftop unit, we decided the Airstream needed a good wash. And it did. Lord, it did. The poor ol’ thing had endured some major weather since the last time we washed it and just rinsing the dirt off was an epic improvement.

My flowers!

My flowers!

George also surprised me with the flowers and I think they make our Airstream look much more homey.

Have done any sprucing up projects lately? Talk to me in the comments!

love,

    Love your pretty flowers. Are you planning on doing another vegetable garden this year?

      Yep! It’s in the ground, I just don’t know how much will grow this year. We had a lot of rain and I’m afraid some of the seeds may have been washed out. We’ll see!

    Looks great! I love the flowers and the pots. I have a couple of other projects to complete around here first, then I hope to plant some herbs, tomatoes and flowers this year. Where did you find the metal buckets. I like that look.

    I love your flowers around the trailer…I also love my galvanized tubs….and my Airstream…would love to travel one day but we are fighting my colon cancer right now…one more round of chemo next month for 12 weeks. Getting ready for a vintage rally in Indiana weekend of the 11th. Sneaking in an outing before I get down and out again from treatments. I love my trailer so. It’s a 1960 Safari model. You enjoy the time you’re young Child
