Project: 1978 Boler After

August 12, 2017 |  by  |  Photos, Projects

After racing down to Lethbridge to buy the original 1978 Boler we had a lot of time to talk about how we wanted to fix it up – what to keep (the double bunk), what to get rid of (those orange curtains) and what to add (a toilet). The process of discussing and planning is just about as much fun as the doing. All in all, we love how it turned out. Check out these photos of our 1978 Boler project. If you want to see the whole process, then click on over to Tumblr.

New paint job! We call her Sunny D. First, sunny because she’s bright yellow and D, well, that’s because we bought it off a man named Denis. So fitting. Okay, let’s check out Sunny D!

The door is all fixed and beautiful matching propane tanks to match her funky style.

Time to head inside and turn right. The dining table – new top, refinished cushions and freshly painted insulation.

Turn left and the Boler completely opens up – look at how fresh the grey paint looks! Everything is so lighted up and clean.

Details – it’s all about the details. This little shoe box keeps sandals up and out of the way.

It took a long time, yet the fridge is so good looking.

New, never used, toilet. It was tricky to install, yet worth it.

Beautiful new hardwood (not laminate) floor – we even replaced the subfloor.

Curtains – much better than the orange ones. The orange ones actually fell apart in the wash. It was like washing tissue paper.

Beautiful new fabric cushions – and jazzy yellow pillows!
