Okay - the original interior was covered in this old vinyl burlap textured crap. Underneath was rotted plywood. Egads!!
We do/did not have the kind of money to hire a professional to redo the interior, so we had to make do with our budget and resources, without going cheesy. I'm very pleased with the results!
The cushions look dirty, but they're not - something with the camera.
George bought teak plywood and enclosed that empty space above the settees and installed smoked plexiglass sliders. Now it's functional! I merely sanded and varnished.
The original Fuller Brush Co. ports were improperly installed and leaked. We bought all new ports (couldn't afford the bronze unfortunately) and George installed them and had to tear off and sand down all the rotted plywood. THAT was a project from hell.
The stove is a brand new 3 burner gimballed lpg Seaward that fell off a Boater's World truck and was warped. We got it when the store was closing out for about $200.
George loosened all of the bolts, stretched everything out with a ?? (can't remember what it's called - kinda like a jack) and then tightened everything back up. It's not warped anymore.
Why the giraffe skin accent? Because we never want to take ourselves too seriously. hahaha!!!
