Well, it has been a long process but Tweety Bird is ready for flight! We began renovations on this 1973 GMC motorhome back in April and we had hopes to be camping all summer. But as with any project, many things came up along the way like – rebuilding half of an engine, all new plumbing, electrical work and just life in general! At the beginning we had mechanics tell us it wasn’t worth fixing (only because they wanted to sell us another one) but we are glad we stuck with our gut and knew that Tweety Bird had lots of potential. Thankfully, my husband was able to do some of the repair work and we had a lot of other wonderful helpers along this journey. Check out past post about Tweety Bird: Meet Tweety Bird; Tweety Update 1; Tweety Update 2.
The outside didn’t need much work~ just a wash, wax and new tires. Of course I would love to have a new paint job at some point but that is way down the road! The time has come and I am so excited to finally show you “Before & After” pics!
And after lots of painting, new hardwood floors, cabinets removed, chairs steam cleaned, painting, new upholstery, new front carpet…. Drum roll please….
And now on to the kitchen and sleeping area. We were able to really open up the whole RV by painting everything white. The white washed hardwood floors also made the space look much larger.
and another drum roll…
We couldn’t be happier with how it turned out! I love having a vision and seeing it play out. We are looking forward to making many memories in Tweety Bird for years to come.
Thanks for following us on the journey!
