Let There Be Light! My Vintage Camper Gets Lit Up!

I am so excited!!! I could not wait to share this with everyone!

Today is a milestone in our vintage camper/she shed renovation.

I have lights!!!

This may be a minor thing to everyone else, but to me, this is a HUGE thing.

Rick spent today hanging and hooking up my lights while I went out choosing a fabric to make my curtains. I headed to my nearest Jo-Ann Fabrics. Two hours later I left with a fabric that I loved and would fit in with my color and decorative theme. I’m a little nervous about sewing them myself (I’m no seamstress). How hard can they be? Yeah, we’ll see how easy they will be.

Next stop was Big Lots to check out the home decor. My friend Becky had texted me a couple days earlier to inform me that Big Lots had a bunch of Paris stuff. Of course I had to check it out.

Another hour later, I left with 2 pillows, a sign, and a teal ceramic canister.

By the time I got home it was late afternoon. We ate supper and watched the news and it was starting to get dark outside. I had actually forgot about the lights and had not realized they were all in and working.

Then Rick said “It’s time to go out and check out your new lights!”


They are in?


We ran out and got in Beatrice and he hit the main switch! And then there was light! I have four lights, two are flush with the ceiling. One above the table area and one as a main light. The two I am most excited about are the vintage cage hanging lights that are in the lounge area. These have the old fashioned Westinghouse bulbs. All four have dimmers.

I LOVE those cage lights and the warm glow they give off!

Vintage look cage lights! I love these

I’m so happy with how they turned out! Even looking at then from the outside makes my want to build a campfire and roast some marshmallows!

I love the glow from outside

Thanks for reading and sharing in the fun
