The Best Little Vintage Van In Vegas, and the tiny caravan which functions as a change room, market stall, house for all things vintage and holiday home shows what can be achieved when you get creative and think outside the box. With the exception of a professional external paint job all the work was done by Kris, family and friends:
- The carpet was ripped out and the floor, walls and ceiling were painted white.
- The outside of the van was cleaned; the silver aluminium panel on the front was replaced and all the external screws were replaced with stainless steel screws.
- Inside, The cupboard doors were removed and painted hot pink, the aluminium window frames were scrubbed clean and the curtains, cushion covers and decoration were made by hand. The retro/kitschy accessories rotate according to Kris' mood.
If you love what you are doing, the minor tribulations and challenges will be long forgotten when you can look at something you have created from an initial vision to the final reality. Keep persevering.You can check out more before images of the van on Kris's facebook page. (Images: Sarah Starkey + Kris Wade, used with permission)
