Bookmobile Tiny Home-Welcome to the Dining room

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Sometimes it’s good to remember where you started. This is one of the first photos taken during the deconstruction phase of our Bookmobile to Tiny Home conversion. The two front seats, a faded sort of mauve/red, have been removed to my workroom for some spiffing up.

Isn’t this fabric just rich and luscious and altogether yummy? This is the drapery fabric for the front of the Bookmobile Tiny Home. Caryn and I used one of my least favorite but most effective DIY tools-spray on glue to cover this header. Caryn removed the covering-the red/mauve stuff, and we fixed this right up-Caryn Style. Whew-we need some lamp shades-IKEA here we come.

Caryn refinished the overhead cupboard door with Chalkboard paint. When we have our wits about us we will write something really snappy up there. The cove was painted with an amazing metallic aluminum paint, and the window area received a coat of peacock blue.

We love this section of the Bookmobile. In its past life, these chairs swiveled around to desks where you could check out your book selections. These desks will become a multipurpose area: dining, kitchen counters, lounge and computer station.You may also notice something really cool-those reddish desktops are gone. Caryn and the Piper repurposed some stainless steel countertops that Caryn bought at auction. First they built the bases up using wood removed from some other place in the bus. Then they persuaded the pre-made stainless shelving to fit over the base. A little steel wool polish, and those stainless steel counters will really add some excitement to the kitchen/dining area. A really clever cutting board is planned to span the area between the counters for when the space is being utilized as “kitchen”.Next we will tell you about the new life¬† given to the seats themselves. Stay tuned to the Bookmobile to Tiny Home Adventure.
