Makeover of a trailer named Blueberry

 My first taste of trailer ownership was my purchase of a golf cart hauling trailer. I named it Gaylord after my father-in-law who was a trailer kind of guy and would have been very proud of me. 

 

 My business name was FUNiture at that time and my husband was so helpful getting the name on the sides. 

A few months ago I found this 16’ trailer and decided to purchase it and fix it up to use as a mobile store or workshop space. When my granddaughter saw it, she named it Blueberry. 

 

Blueberry needed some beautifying inside and I knew that Chalky Paints & Finishes would be perfect for this project. 

I tore out this glued down, dirty, musty carpeting and installed peel and stick vinyl flooring. I painted the walls with Mermaid Chalky Paint. I used Brown Tinted Easy Wax on the cabinet that is by the wheel well. I stained the upper cabinets and then dry brushed Mermaid Chalky Paint over them. I even put a little bling on the rusted refrigerator door handle and the yellowed plastic overhead air conditioner unit by using Chalky Paints & Finishes Bronze Metallic Paint

The kitchen cabinets were dreary looking and water damaged. 

I painted the kitchen cabinet frames in Manatee Gray Chalky Paint. I used Chalky Paints & Finishes Brown Tinted Easy Wax on the cabinet doors. These products are such an affordable way to get a much more updated look. 

It took me 5 days to do this makeover of Blueberry. And then I found out the weight of the trailer was too heavy for my car to tow. So, I sold Blueberry for more than I paid for it and chalked it up as a good DIY project. What would you like to update with these great products?
