Light Fixtures for the Camper

Finding replacement light fixtures for my little Shasta has been challenging. What was in there was something new that the previous owner had installed. So not cutting it. So, I started looking at new ones that would have a vintage flair or something that would go with the "Glamping" style. They were either rediculously expensive or did not have a switch at the source. So I finally decided to look up vintage light fixtures on eBay.
Low and behold I found these beauties. They are from the 1930's, porcelain and painted with a soft blue trim and pink roses. I found the pair! One will go over the dinette table and 1 over the sink where the tiny kitchenette is. Got them in the mail and cleaned them up and they are perfect. Honey will rewire them and install. There is 1 other light fixture that hangs on the wall in the back over the couch/fold down bed. So I kept searching and found from another eBay dealer a matching wall sconce. SCORE!!!! That one is being shipped. Will show you that one when I get it.

Also, Dad finished rebuilding the closet today and is officially finished with all of the woodwork. He has primed the entire inside and she is ready for her paint job. I decided on a color called antique white. It is a warmer white that matches the faux tin roof tiles I bought to finish the ceiling inside. I didn't care for the wood tone inside so she will be a pretty white. I plan on adding color with the cushions, curtains, pillows, etc. Can't wait to show you the details.
More pictures of before and after next week.
