TRAILERS.....THE NEW CHIC ACCESSORY!
My husband has always loved Trailers. Not the big RV's but the old vintage type. He especially likes the Airstream. Myself, not so much.
When I was little my grandparents took us camping or we rented a cottage. I can honestly say the only trailer I have ever been in, and that was only for a few minutes, was one my in-laws had decided to buy. It was one of those big ugly things from the 1970's. You know the kind that is really narrow up the middle with the table that turns into a bed. Uhggggggg! All I ever thought of when someone said they were "going to the trailer for the week" was something like the above pictures. A lot of old trailers in a park that people tried to make look like a weekend home.
After seeing some very cute Vintage Trailers on PINTEREST I am revisiting the idea of getting one. Now, because we live in the beautiful country on a farm, I do not see the point of going to a "Trailer Park" or hitting the road. I would entertain the idea of letting my husband put one of these cuties in the wooded area of the farm.
I am always looking for a new decorating project and I am getting the bug to build or redo something. I could see myself getting an old trailer that needs work and making something cute like this.
How adorable it would be. We could go up there in the afternoon and it would be a home away from home.
No long traffic filled drives, although if I had one of these adorable sets it would be tempting.
So, now the hunt is on for something small and cheap, nothing big like this, but it is lovely. Just a little handy woman's special.
