Cupboard Couture

Well as you may or may not know the cupboard for this bus was custom made by a muppet, sorry, professional idiot, sorry professional handy person……well almost handy. Let’s just call him Paul. He actually has some skills, although I hate to compliment him because he will remind me of it for the rest of my life! Anyway this gibbon managed to make an excellent job of building the cupboards, and yes I monitored him at all times and gave him regular tablets for his condition 😀

Gibbon has no idea what the sink is

But he cut a hole for it anyway

Sink in and depressions for the camp cooker, as we want to be able to use it inside and outside the bus

Rear access to gas and water. There didn’t seem much point in having a sliding door with no purpose and this is perfect!

Several months later cupboard was stripped back and primed…..heavily!

At times I just wanted to give up

But I’m so glad I didn’t! Don’t they look brilliant, all the hard work put in by Mum and myself really paid off. Thanks again Mum 🙂
