Speaking of the lake house!!

Last year we started this project.
It's a work in progress. We bought a 1960 single wide in all it's original glory. We removed the closets, all of the cabinets and the flooring. Then I painted the paneled walls white. We used repro moulding and trim around new doors and windows. We removed the hollow core doors and replaced them with chippy white solid wood doors, of course we used vintage glass knobs. In the powder room we used a vintage vanity with original mirror and put sink into it, BEAUTIFUL.

 This is a picture of a little white cabinet I found on the curb.


Can you get a glimpse of the floor here? We layed plywood over the sub floor and stained it dark walnut with a satin varnish. It turned out better than we could have ever expected.

Can you see that the cabinets on the upper left don't match the others? This is what happens when you are on a budget! We bought damaged pieces and will bring it all together with a coat of gloss white paint. I used vintage glass door knobs for the lower doors and small glass knobs for the drawers and the upper cabinets.

We are bringing in a Hoosier and have changed out the blue table you can see on the left. I have lots of plans for our little house. Can't wait to share what we do next!!!
