I know you will all be on the edge of you seats, hanging out for this blog post, because I know you all really want to do a makeover on your Road Train, don’t you?!
Well wait no longer. Here it is my friends. The bunk makeover on Mr Chardy’s road train.
Now, I will tell you this – I haven’t really been in the cab of many road trains and wasn’t expecting it to be so squashy. Tom assures me it is very little and that other road train cabs are much bigger.
Here is the before photo…
I feel dirty just showing you that photo.
Looks slightly seedy doesn’t it? I actually threw up a little in my mouth just looking at it. Do you think Mr Chardy feels like a porn star in that cab with all of that maroon studded pleather?
And now… drum roll please… the K-Mart makeover….
Every road train needs a fake plant and a solar powered lamp, right?
Now I don’t want you all contacting me at once and asking to contract my makeover services for your road train, so just calm down everyone. What I can tell you is that everything came from our local boutique – K-Mart. You can totally DIY! This is very affordable and not out of reach for you! I would recommend a few more decorative cushions, perhaps a fish bowl and a budgie in a cage. A rug for the floor wouldn’t go astray either.
As you could imagine Mr Chardy is just beside himself with excitement re this makeover and can’t wait to take her for a run. This may be the first and last time that I make up the bed in this truck because holy cow – it wasn’t the easiest of tasks. Think making a double bunk only 10 times worse. There was quite a bit of swearing and huffing and puffing. So I think it would just be best if he throws his swag in there. Much easier and then his body isn’t as close to that foul mattress.
Ok, I think I am off my tits from the smell of “auto cologne” in that truck & might need a lie down. Or maybe I have contracted an exotic disease from the mattress, I knew I should have worn gloves and a face mask. I’ll just pop off now and disinfect myself.
How is your road train looking? ha ha ha
What do you think of the maroon studded pleather?
