Just a little reminder of what it looked like 4 short months ago.

Are you ready to finally see the inside?  It was the craziest thing, for months The Nugs was parked between the side of the house and our block wall with just a teeny bit of squeeze room to get inside.  After all of the changes that we made inside (like taking out the top bunk, and cupboard) it felt so much bigger!  Then, when we pulled it out so that I could paint, and the first thing that I thought was “Holy crap this thing is WAY smaller than I remember!”  I guess a shift in perspective will do that to you.

This is what it looked like before? In a word. Dark.

Remember what the kitchen area looked like before?

It was definitely a good choice to redo the tile, and start fresh with the cabinets.  High fives on that one friends!

We took the door off of the closet and widened the doorway.

Then we added lawyer style shelves for loads more storage!

On the opposite side, I put in a mirror and a little ledge perfect for holding toiletries.

This is also where we put the light switches for the closet light and the main light.

And we cant forget to talk about the floor.  I love this thing more and more every time I see it!

We also have some storage in the eating nook, and a place to put cute treasures.

Can we just talk about the art for a second?  If you are a diehard VR reader you might remember the giant bike painting that I have hanging in my entryway (posted way back in 2011 so be kind when you click that link!).  I have been DYING to get a painting of Wallace and Gertie Girl done and of course had to reach back out to my friend Jonathan.  You guys.  This painting is an EXACT freaking duplication of their adorable faces.  And the crazy part is that he does everything with spray paint.  I know.  He is the coolest person on the planet.  So if you want more info, check out his site here.

The rest of the art are prints that will be selling in the soon to be opened Vintage Revivals Shop!  I preach that art doesn’t have to be expensive and so I am putting my money where my mouth is!

I need to give the most massive thank you in all the world to The Home Depot for not only sponsoring this project, but for the FREAKING AMAZING employees at my local store who always wanted status updates and were so willing to listen and troubleshoot all of the strange requests that came up over the course of this project.  They always have kind words and encouragement to share, and never judge me when I am rockin a 4 day ponytail.  Those are the kind of friends that you want right?  MUAH!

I just have so many feeeeeelings about The Nugget and the process that this entire thing has been.  Don’t mind me as I wax thoughtful for a minute mkay?

This has hands down been the hardest project that I have ever done.  There were so many new skills that we had to learn and so many projects that went awry, at times it was almost too much to handle.  I don’t consider myself someone who knows everything about DIY and design but there were moments that I felt like a complete amateur.  Like every choice I made was wrong (because it was!)  When I am working on room projects I like to get things done really fast, while the excitement and inspiration is fresh in my mind.  Over the course of the last 4+ months I have learned patience and that its ok to start over.

The crazy thing is that originally, I had talked with Home Depot about having it done in mid July for a cross country trek to Atlanta.  Thank goodness that was nixed.  Then I had planned on having it finished in mid September.  That is when I had my meltdown.  But now.  Mid November it is finally done.  The absolutely insane thing is that it would have looked completely different if I had finished it in July or September.  Circumstances and little moments of inspiration adjusted my viewpoint and design and I am THRILLED with how it all turned out.  In fact (Court cover your ears) I kind of would love to do another one.  Now that I know a little more about the process.  It might be a little like child birth.  It is so fun and exciting when you find out you are expecting, you spend so much time getting things ready,  at the end of the pregnancy you can.not wait to get it over with,  birth is freaking painful,  but then you have this adorable little baby trailer and you kind of forget about all of the crappy parts.

So is The Nugget everything I pictured?  Yes and No.  No, because it isn’t where I thought that the design would end up, but that detail is completely trumped by the fact that is in fact a 1000x better that I thought it would be!  I am SO proud of how this little guy turned out.  It is hands down the coolest project we’ve ever done.

I don’t sing his praises nearly enough, but I have THE BEST husband on the planet.  Court is so patient and hard working and rarely complains…even when I tell him the new tile has to come out.  He is absolutely my better half and I could do none of this without him.  Love you Court!  So um…wanna have another baby trailer?

Lastly (I feel like this is turning into a speech to the Academy) I want to thank you guys for sticking with me through this entire series, and for giving me tough love when I needed it and huge bursts of encouragement when I was struggling.  You are the absolute best readers and I am SO lucky to have you!

You can see every post from the entire Nugget series here!

    This is incredible! I was wondering (and maybe you’ve state it before and I missed it): are you keeping The Nugget for yourself or selling it? Also, I know you took the top bunk out, but is there sleeping space? I didn’t see a bed in any of the photos, but I may have missed it. Thanks for sharing!

    • Shannon @ Fabulously Vintage 21.11.2014 at 17:04

      I was wondering too if you could still sleep in it? Do the benches at the table fold down and the table lift away?

      Amazing job! I can’t believe how beautiful it looks! :)

    • Elizabeth 21.11.2014 at 17:41

      If it’s anything like most travel trailers, you can drop the table down to make a platform and use the bench cushions as your mattress.

I’m hoping it’s not to complex but I would kill to see how you made it. Please show us your ways! Lighting is my fav but scares the crap out of me because, hello!, all those wires!

    Great job Mandi, it looks beautiful. I particularly love the staging of the shoot. Souther Utah is so dreamy!

    A note about the blog – not sure if other readers are having the same problem but it seems to take a really long time for posts with lots of pics to load. (I had to leave this one open for like 10 minutes and a few of the pics are still not fully loaded.) It could be that your blog traffic is now so high that you need a new solution for hosting your images so that they load quickly? A good problem to have! I just thought I’d mention it in case you weren’t aware of the issue. If other are having the same problem it probably effects your bounce rate. I actually don’t know anything about the mechanics of how this all works, but I remember YHL doing a post about how they had to host their pics in amazon cloud and all that to keep things loading quickly.

    Again, LOVE the trailer!

  • Kimberley 21.11.2014 at 17:23

    Mandi! This is gorgeous! My favorite are those lawyer shelves/cabinets. Great solution there. My main question is…what are you planning on doing with it now? Are you planning any trips with it? Are you going to sell it?

    It’s amazing! I’m so glad you showed the whole process. Especially the meltdowns and frustrations. When you are an amateur DIYer, things go wrong more times than not. It’s encouraging to know it’s ok to start over if it goes wrong. I’ve loved this whole process and appreciate you sharing it with everyone.

    Love love love! I have been following you for some time and the project from the start and it is unbelievable what you have done (totally agree with the tile and cabinet redo… sometimes you have to try things to know that it’s not right). The inside is so fresh and clean and looks soooo much bigger! Now i just have to convince my husband that we should do one too! 😀 haha

    Girl! This is so, so beautiful!! This sounds a bit silly to say but I’m so proud of how you stuck with it and didn’t settle on a design that didn’t feel right to you. By trusting your gut you came out with a design that totally rings true to you and is SO GORGEOUS. Congrats!

    I love, love, love the little “The Nugget” sign by the door. TOO FREAKING CUTE.

    Question: Do the seats still fold down to make a bed? How are you planning to use it in the future??

  • Amanda fry 21.11.2014 at 17:46

    It is absolutely beautiful! You never cease to amaze me Mandi! I’m so curious…how much did all of this cost? I know it’s been sponsored by The Home Depot, but with all of your inspiration, I feel like I want to re-store my own Nugget and knowing the cost would help tremendously!

    I am living my DIY-trailer-remodel desire through you! It’s fabulous. I wanted to ask about the unfinished door? What was/is your thinking behind it? Also, I’m curious to know about the weight. What did it weigh empty before and what does it weigh empty now? Our towing capacity is limited. What do you tow it with? Can you also do a man hour breakdown and full retail cost of supplies? Will you keep it or sell? Just fab!

    Total slow clap into standing ovation moment.

    Nailed it. killed it. Good job. I am in love with the cabinets–I think that was the best decision ever on the nugget to rework those babies. And the clean white tile…perfect. Yeah so are you guys touring in that? You know you’ll be getting VR fans left and right wanting to pull you over on the side of the road for a tour. If road trip through the midwest (I dunno….Cincinnati maybe) and I see the Nugs, I’m following you until you pull over and agree to a tour. You’ve been warned. But I’ll also treat you to dinner… so win/win? Anyway, fan-damn-tastic.

    My favorite element, though, is the yellow diamond wall. I am totally doing that somewhere in my house at some point in my life.

    Oh man, I can’t believe this project didn’t kill you. It looks amazing and your style is so present. Your bright colors and patterns give it such a happy vibe. When are you going to take a vacation and just drive across the country? The nugget needs to get out there and spread its cheer to everyone. My favorite is the eating nook you created with the booth seating and that table!!! and the curtains and planters, c’mon!! You should have picnic’s in there at least once a week. There’s really so much you did, that each thing is quite outstanding. It’s hard to compliment you on one thing. I do think your husband is so great and I would love to read a post from him about this. :-)

    Mandi, this is incredible. I have been really excited to see the finished product because all the little bits and pieces were amazing, but I was having a hard time imagining how they would fit together! This is literally the most gorgeous trailer I’ve ever seen. You should be so proud.

    Before the Nugget series, I was a casual reader of your blog. About halfway through, I started checking every day. Not necessarily because of the work you were doing itself—though, as I said, it’s spectacular!—but because of your posts where you admitted when something wasn’t working for you and weren’t too afraid or too proud to rip it out and try again. That kind of honesty is pretty rare, and I really admired you for it. And now we see why it’s good to keep at it until you get it right: because now you have this phenomenal little house on wheels!

    Super adorable, majorly inspiring. We have a 1963 Airstream and 1958 Ball canned ham (really similar shape and size to The Nugget, just older!) I’ve been hesitant to do much to them because I’m… scared, I guess. I love that you take a project on like this without fear. It definitely motivates me to be a little more courageous with the work on our campers!

    Hands down the coolest little trailer ever! I love every single thing that you did, and it has been truly inspiring to follow along with you! The creativity that you put into this project truly amazes me! This little nugget is full of gold! Excellent job! Now the real question is… will you actually be camping in it? 😉

The cabinets are still one of my favorite parts- awesome job all around! :)

    My husband and I have twice renovated and moved into a camper so that we could save money to travel. I tell him our family motto should be – “we’ll always choose the camper.” It kind of sums up our trying to keep it simple approach to life. That being said I think that ANYONE would happily choose to live in this camper. I love how fearless you were in your approach to this project. It came out so gorgeous!
    One question, does the table still convert into a bed?

    Amazing!!, I loved this series so much! Every time I saw a new post I my feebly I would think “the nugget?!” and get excited. Here are my questions/thoughts:
    1.) what camera lense are you shooting with to be able to shoot in such a small space and not get any distorted angles?
    2.) I think you need to be designing wallpaper based on how beautiful your sharpie walls always turn out because i am not about to try to tackle one but would love to have the look (and I know others would to).
    3.) while we’re at it, I think you should have a whole line of products including lighting, cabinet hardware, flooring, planters, etc. you have such a unique point of view and innovative style. If this is a dream of yours, I hope it comes true because I would definitely be a customer!!

    This is SOOOO beautiful!! Not only the makeover was amazing (seriously, that floor!), but also you managed to show every single lovely detail with such great photos through the entire process. Plus, these last ones on the desert are magazine-cover worthy.
    I got to your site through Craftgawker (I think) a few months ago and this is the first comment I make. I really liked your design style, your honesty, the tutorials, and the real life story… but I have to confess that the thing that kept me hooked the most was the Nugget! I was looking forward to seeing it finished, and reading about all the effort and time and love you were investing into it made it even more exciting.
    I live in Argentina, and trailers are not very common here (never saw more than three or four in my life), so sometimes when traveling with my family as a little girl I fantasized about having one and living on the road, like in the movies. Looking at the finished Nugget kind of brought those feelings back a little!

But unfortunately, I do not have your level of skill and my husband does not have Court’s level of patience. 😉 This is probably my favorite series. The reason is (besides the great inspiration) is because of the mistakes. It was so great to watch you doubt yourself, regroup, and then pull it off.

    I can’t relate to the Nugget obsession, and my comment will probably get deleted, but I wanted to say it anyway. I am a traveler and I actually own a small camper, but I think VR might lose some readers because of the hard-core focus on something that a lot of peole don’t own. On the other hand, we all live in a home that can benefit from some great VR ideas. I can appreciate the hard work that went into renovating it but I just can’t understand it. It has turned me away from the blog.

    Vintage is definitely a good word to describe what the trailer looked like when you got it. The old seats and the wallpaper didn’t hide its age very well. I love the way it looks now though! I especially love the way you did the floor. It was probably a good idea to not worry about taking out the old green flooring. Covering it up is a lot quicker! Thanks for sharing!

    I just wanted to say that what you two have created is just so unique. I have looked at quite a few sites where they are doing up a vintage caravan and they dont come close to what you have designed. So ORIGINAL in a good way. My partner and I have also done up an 8 foot 53 year old caravan and also absolutely love her. I understand what you are descibing as you talk about her , as if she is your baby. Our caravan is the fifth member in our family besides our two dogs. I just love to spend time in her as she makes me happy and I feel like Im smiling on the inside when I have had a coffee of just popped in for a quick visit…… Anyway this wasnt about me. So CONGRATS on a fabulous job,,,,,,,,now you can enjoy her!

    Amazing work – I am totally inspired!! I would love to make curtains for my caravan like yours, and have bought the copper for the top rail, and bought the fabric, but can’t quiet see how you have attached the fabric – is that leather with a eyelet? and then how to the curtains stay rolled up? (and did you put a rod at the base of your curtains to help them hang flat? Thanks so much!!!

    The ultimate reuse! Just curious about what you do when you actually move this little nugget? I have been meddling with the balance of decor and functionality when it comes to mobile spaces. I see that some shelves have railings but others don’t. Do you just do what most of us do and set it up each time you relocate? It sure can take a lot of time and effort and it seems that most of these trailer redecorations are just for show and not for actual living. What say ye??

    Nice job! I have a Bell camper, too! I just repainted the outside and “freshened up” the inside (as it’s been painted for awhile now)…Mine is a 1968 16ft. My husband actually found the president from the company and he still had decals, so I was able to restore my “Tink” to her original color with brand new decals. Thanks for sharing.

I have two quick question, if someone asked this before I apologize. One, do you know about how much the camper weighs in it’s finished form? And two, about how much total did it cost from start to finish roughly? Thanks in advance!
