There are people who know how to transform objects and space in such a way that it is impossible to recognize them after.
The same thing happened with a rusty trailer from the 70s – it turned from junk into a design object in which you want to travel and even live.
Designer Mandy Gabler returned home with a purchase: she paid a thousand dollars for an old trailer. Her husband was not too happy with such an acquisition.
“What did you just do?” he asked his wife, not understanding why they needed this big junk in the backyard. Mandy assured her husband that she could repair the rusty trailer so that it would be possible to take it on a dream vacation.
The girl called her van “Nugget”.
Apparently, she immediately saw great potential in this vintage object. But if at first both the husband and acquaintances were skeptical about this idea, after only four months they will be amazed by the result.
Mandy uploaded photos of her trailer conversion work to her blog to show the steps involved in transforming it into a cozy little home.
When Mandy bought the old trailer, it was in terrible shape. That’s why it cost only a thousand dollars.
The trailer’s panels were rusted, there were holes in the walls, and the interior hadn’t been changed since the 70s. It was sad to look at it.
A major overhaul was needed, and Mandy’s husband also got involved. The girl decided not to limit herself to replacing covers and took drastic measures to change the trailer for the better.
Basically, she redesigned it. Even the outer skin of the motor home had to be torn off – it had suffered too much from moisture.
The trailer’s bunk beds and wardrobes were removed by Mandy, which made the Nugget’s interior less claustrophobic. The designer replaced the closets with plant shelves and the beds with much more comfortable sofas.
Instead of dark wooden panels, light ones appeared. And one of the walls has acquired a pretty yellow tint.
The door was replaced with a new wooden one. Mandy and her husband built a pantry in the trailer to provide enough storage space.
A new wooden floor gave a special charm to the interior and emphasized its freshness. And of course, the first thing people see today is what nice colors the trailer is painted on the outside.
Surprisingly, it took only four months to turn junk into “Nugget”.
Now Mandy and her husband have their own dream house on wheels, where they can go anywhere. And now no one asks the girl: “What are you doing?” Instead, everyone is wondering, “How did you do that?”
