Cabin in an Enchanted Forest.

This was a very fun project to do for this family of six.
Here is the before. These clients have four kiddos and wanted there camper to look like a log cabin...well then.... I decided to place it into a forest filled with fun characters.
Side one all these characters were found on a free clipart sight .
This started to cover the vent on this side of the camper. Again I found the images on the computer and just adjusted them to work with the design.
When doing the wood grain on the front the texture on the bottom . What a great place to hall a load of wood.
What is an enchanted garden with out a gnome and a sneaky little skunk.
All the detail was added after the two base coats dried for three days.
Fun characters for all ages.
The little one sing this all the time.. So Fun.
How did we do that? After cleaning it up we based coated it with a nice gold color and then this is where the fun begins..
Using a contrasting brown we thinned the paint with lacquer thinner and used a wood grain tool to achieve the wood look. All of these items can be found at your local home store.

    What a talent. They are blessed to have you do this remodel. How much did all the supplies cost?

      I applied the base color first (Light brown) then I thinned the darker color just a bit. With a wide brush I painted on the brown one stripe at a time and dragged the tool along rocking it as I went.

    Absolutely love it. Think of how many more people will want to do this on their old campers.

    Really lovely. We have an old static caravan in our garden and this is the perfect idea for it
