Project: My Ole Lady the Boler After
It’s done – and sold, yet the work we did on My Ole Lady the Boler is beautiful. Check it out – bright red accents with a light and bright interior. So fun. Oh, and if you haven’t seen the before, you should check that out first; it’s cool to see how much this lady has transformed.
My Ole Lady the Boler After
We took this shabby paint job, sandpaper, and a lot of time and turned it into a fun little camper.
She’s ready to hit the open road and have some fun.
We love the far side and how it’s all neat. No vents, just clean lines. The water and power outlets are underneath the trailer for ease of use.
Notice the snow? It’s still a little chilly, yes, but it’s not too soon to think about summer camping.
The bunk is the perfect way to make the most out of small spaces. Couch by day and bunk by night, dual purpose all the way.
The back dinette transfers into a bed for two.
We stuck with natural accents for the doors and the floor to keep the space neutral, yet offering a balance to the white interior.
The accent red cushions are my favourite. They add a bit of personality to the space and carry the red exterior inside. Camping is fun and as such, your camper should be fun, too.
All done, however, we’ll for sure miss My Ole Lady the Boler after. She was so much fun to work on.
That’s it – My Ole Lady the Boler after. With a wrinkly tire cover (you should have seen it when we took it out of the box) she’s ready to hit the road and have some adventures. Thanks for stopping by and check out our projects.
These Bolars are great!!
Where can I get one.
I’m in Texas and know and love Vancouver Island. I was there in the 90s with my brother and family.
Bolers are great – and we used to live in Dallas! So fun.
Where can you get one? They’re hard to find, especially in the USA. People use various sites that sell things (so Kijiji, for example) and sometimes if you see one and strike up a conversation with the owner, you never know how it might turn out.
We hear stories all the time of them being sold to neighbours, or friend’s of friend’s – so it’s possible to find one!
This is an amazing transformation! Wow. We just bought a 1976 Boler today and looking at restoring it too! What type of paint did you use for the exterior? Such amazing results!!
So exciting – congrats. We’ve used a few different paints on the exterior – automotive paint and marine grade enamel have been two that we like best. If you’re on Instagram, feel free to check out @tipsy.the.boler and we have quite a few posts on the paint and process we use.
Have fun restoring your Boler!!
