Before-and-After Photos of Eddie

Who doesn't love a good before-and-after?  I mean really that's what we live and breath for, right?  When I was writing yesterday's post about Eddie-the-Airstream I hunted on their website for a picture to match the original "before" photo, but to no avail.  So I emailed Tiffany to see if I had missed it and she said they didn't have one taken from that angle.  A couple of days later what should appear in my email inbox, but a lovely set of before-and-after photos that I just had to share.  How sweet is that.  


So let me remind you of Eddie in all his 1970s glory.




And let me introduce you to the new spiffed-up Eddie - all painted and polished and made-over.



Some of the walls have been painted white, wood floor has been installed, and new cushions and blinds have been added.  There is also a new fridge, stove, sink/faucet, and  counter-top to up-grade the kitchen area.  


I love their trailer and think it would be such fun to travel like that.   What about you - anyone else have a burning desire to be footloose and fancy free travelling around and living in a trailer?

  1. I would love a vintage trailer and a bunch of girlfriends to go on a road trip with! I think it would be a trip of a lifetime! I would love to go with my family too for a trip across Canada!

  2. This is my 14 yr old son's dream. He wants a vintage trailer he can fix up and put in our backyard as either an apartment or a music studio. I guess he can travel with it after he finishes college. He dreams big. He would love these photos. They did an amazing job.

  3. How cool! It looks so chic now.

    I have an old trailer (not an airstream) and I've been toying with the idea of fixing it up, just as a sort of "playhouse".

  7. Eddie looks great! My mother in law just bought a trailer by one of our beautiful Ontario lakes for the summer so this gives me some inspiration if she wants help fixing it up. So exciting!

  8. Oh, I can so imagine doing this. Really, we need to all just pack up and go for a long exciting ride across the continent!

  9. I've never thought of making over an airstream before...but really, that's the only way I'd be able to own one. GREAT makeover! I love it! Thanks for commenting on my blog last week...I'm about to explore yours! Oh, and check back soon - I'll be putting up a tutorial on the glass etching soon thanks to your suggestion.
