Just some randomness for today...

Should have worn this before sanding off 60 yr old shellac

It will go back together..?!

Wow. Today two things actually went on the trailer instead of being taken off. The back panel and the gimp. This was the most work we have done in a while and a huge step! I got to participate more which made me so happy. The staple gun is my friend! Bob and Ben took off some of the frame from the top so I could lay the gimp down. I had so much shopping at I bought a new vent and some welting. My new favorite store! I think it looks so good and nice and clean. They also put on the lower back panel, which was a #@%$%*.  It turned out perfectly. Ben made a special piece to lay between the panel and the floor, so it has a nice clean finished look and feel to it. I glued a bunch of veneer on the cupboards and sanded the hell out of everything I could. It's starting to feel like a new trailer. I can see the littlest glimpse of it all coming together. She's going to be so pretty...

Mysterious new hole in the ceiling... Benjamin..?

What's left of the back right now

Installing the gimp. Fun job for me!

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king's horses and all the king's men
Couldn't put Humpty together again...

I feel like Agnes is a little bit Humpty right now. Not that I am the least bit discouraged or think that she won't all come back together. It's just that she looks like a shell of her former self.


The next parts are most likely to be some of the trickiest. Starting the woodwork and trying to modify it so everything goes back together just right. Time for the puzzle!

Pulling off veneer is fun!

Wait, how were the back panels attached again?

Today was very windy and warm and sunny. It had been a busy week and it was so nice to be away from everything. It was just a really lovely day.
