I have two little caravans in my block. The littler one is a little… drab.

I was going to gut it, but then I realised an intact kitchen could be quite handy.

Plus, it does have some retro features I love – like the yellow couch and cute little clock and light fittings. 

I wanted to make all those lovely vintage oranges and yellows pop, so I spent the weekend painting the walls blue/grey. It covered surprisingly well (with two coats) even where the timber is a bit damaged. The trickiest bit was keeping all the white trims white!

It really works. It is darker but much cosier.

Look at that couch! ?
