Just a few more projects...like a working shower!

As promised, the following are some "after" pictures.  We have moved everything in and organized most of our things.  We still have several all day projects, like replacing the diverter valve and the washers in the shower.  Currently no functioning shower; but, I can always take a bath until we can get this done.  Yuck!

No time to write.  Just enough time to post a few pictures:




Bedroom - Notice the TV that plays VHS - Really Modern stuff in a 1964 House - (smiling)

Such a BEAUTIFUL job, Theres just something special about a little house/camper/trailer that makes it feel like home. Sure I love to see all the huge homes and mansions from the street. But I wouldnt want the life inside. My husb and I raised 4 children in a tiny 2 bedroom 1 bath and we were very close and at home. I loved that house. But with my hus paralysis, it wouldnt work. We had to have something a bit bigger for his handicap. Its not the same. It feels so empty and lonely, a problem we never had b4.
God Bless You and all your hard work, the Love radiates from all youve done.
Im only confused about 1 small detail. In the kitchen there are 6 baskets in the wall, but another picture, there were 6 cookie jars. Which one did you choose? Both looked Beautiful! Thank You for Sharing.

Terri, What a sweet comment. We look at life as seasons. So happy to hear your life is also filled with different seasons.

I went with the baskets initially, until I unpacked my jars and found that they fit. I was so happy because there was no counter space and I really used them a lot in my apartment.

Thanks agin for popping in and leaving such a sweet message.

Hugs - Dianna

Dianna..I am also living in an older mobile home and have started fixing up different rooms. I can't believe what you were able to accomplish with your place...It looks so great...<3 what you did to the floor. And the colors you picked look amazing. Wish I had the money and the time to do something like this with my place. (Would help if I had someone to help with the work too...lol) Great work...<3
Crikey, Dianna, you are a woman (and man) after my own heart! Your incredible resourcefulness and practical but beautiful projects are right in my creative sweet spot. The hubs keeps exclaiming, "This looks like something you would do!" Unlike all the design and decor and diy shows/blogs in existence, your budget solutions are both awesome and affordable. And, you've energized me to be more attentive to my own blog. Kudos and thumbs up to you both! Ann from makethebestofthings@blogspot.com

Didn't know an old one could look this good! Amazing job. I'd pick that over a house any day. SO what is the size of the home (length and width)?
Dianna Wood said…
Hi! Michael Wood here. Thanks for popping in. Our mobile home is ten feet wide by fifty-two feet long.

Painted Patio Wall Transformation - Our New "Secret Garden"

Michael and I have discovered a Secret Garden every where we have lived since getting married in 2010.  Whether it was the creek that ran behind our first apartment in Sacramento or the tiny little space of our 520 square foot, 1962 single-wide, mobile home in Rancho Cordova, California, we were always able to discover and create a unique sanctuary to call home.  Even though, in years past, we did what we could to make our surroundings uniquely wonderful, we never had the room to go really crazy until now.

Since moving to our new home in North Carolina in May, we have not only discovered a world of exotic creatures and plants outdoors, but we have also started taking full advantage of the additional space we now have available to add our own touch of whimsy to the new "Wood's Secret Garden".

Our first major project was the Patio which joins the in-law quarters (where mom lives) to the kitchen entrance into the main house.  We have received so many questions about "…
