It's finally Friday! Can I get a Fri-Yay?! We've been so pumped about the flood of Reader Design submissions that we can hardly contain ourselves. But we've decided we want to give everyone their full moment in the spotlight and save these juicy reveals for the end of each week. Lucky for you, it's the weekend and we've got an alternative space for your viewing pleasure.
Ok like me, you may have noticed that decking out an itty-bitty-living space is all the rage these days. But tiny cabins and converted school buses are just the hipsters of the movement: catching on to the trend after it's been around for a good long while. Let's not forget the origins of tiny living dates back to the 1920's with this little number:
Ok. It's not much to look at. But that's because this was before Jen from Fresh Crush got her magical hands on this diamond in the rough.
You remember Jen right? I mean how could you forget her master bedroom & foyer Reader Design.
WHAT?!? You don't know what Reader Designs are? Shun the non-believer! I bet you even have an entry of your own to share. Why would you deprive us of your unique point of view?!?! Reader Designs are an open invitation to share your unique design and creativity. There are no requirements to be a professional decorator or even a fellow blogger. The purpose of Reader Designs is simply to share incredible rooms with fresh ideas and document these features in our SPACES section to use as a reference of inspiration.
Ok, now that you're in the loop - back to today's sensational space:
BAM! Betcha didn't see that coming!
It used to be that when I thought "camper," I pretty much pictured what Jen initially found when she acquired hers:
A big, smelly, mysterious pile of YIKES.
Jen, how you could see this jewel somewhere in of all that I shall never know.
"This project was around for a few Summer seasons! But it was so much fun. The goal was to keep a vintage retro look, but modernize it a little... and keep it cheery! My husband and I had a blast figuring out every little detail from new exterior paint, to new upholstery and lighting. There isn't a square inch we haven't touched and updated, and we love every minute we spent in this beauty, all Summer long with our family. A big step up from tenting!"
I'll say! I'd like to check into my room please.
I can't imagine what kind of spring cleaning it took to strip it down to the bare bones. Unrecognizable!
And Jen didn't bottle up her personal touches on the inside:
She gave it some glam on the outside too.
We hope you have an inspired weekend my friends! Ok maybe not to go camping in this weather we're having. But if I had myself a glamper...
Jen, if it's not still parked outside tomorrow...
