My husband and I have been spending nearly every second of our spare time in the Sprite since it was delivered and we seem to be a bit more eager to work on it than I had originally thought we would be. I thought we would spend all winter working away at it but if we keep going at it like we are now I think we’ll be done before winter even begins! Here are a few more pictures of the Sprite when we bought it:
When shopping around for the right camper, we paid a bit more for one that was well taken care of. However, with something that’s 46 years old, you can expect to repair a few things. We replaced some of the Masonite walls where there had been water damage in the past, and while we had the wall open we replaced the fiberglass insulation and sealed it back up.
I wanted a clean slate to work with, and since its such a small space I knew we needed to lighten up the dark wood. So, I purchased some Zinsser Stain Blocker. I love Zinsser primer, it works better than any other brand I’ve tried and this one is especially designed to resist mold and keep stains from seeping through the finish.
We’re currently working on updating the cupboards with mouldings and new handles, and I also made some new curtains from some discount fabric we found. Here’s a sneak peak!
