He Surprised His Wife With A Rusty Old Trailer. What She Did To It? SPEECHLESS

8475

One day, a Seattle-based mother named Tiffany received a surprise from her husband — a small, old, rusty trailer.

But with a lot of love, help from her husband, endless hours and inspiration from her two daughters, Tiffany managed to give this tiny space an adorable, cozy, and stylish makeover. To celebrate Pinkie’s new chapter, Tiffany renamed the trailer Audree.

She describes the experience on her blog, “The Fancy Farmgirl,” by writing:

“A serendipitous story for sure, she was meant to belong to me before I even knew it. After purchasing her from a stranger, I come to find out a very good friend of mine actually owned this darling little thing just a year prior. I remember her mentioning to me a sweet little trailer she thought I should own. I declined even to look at it, knowing that if I saw it, I would probably want it. At the time, it wasn’t financially feasible, and I knew it would just taunt me to see such a thing. Reluctantly I pass[ed] on the offer, only for this little trailer to come full circle to me again a year later as a gift from my husband, unaware of our previous connection.

She has come a long long way in her 52 years. I wish I knew more of her history. Today, her and my next chapter begin…”

Tiffany invited Amy over to marvel at little Audree’s transformation. I have no doubt their reunion was a happy one.

This is how Audree’s original owner, Amy, found her almost two years ago. The trailer was always cute, but in definite need of some love and care. She was rusty and had been shoved back and forth from one owner to another. Audree needed a permanent, loving home!

Bam!! Tiffany decided to dress Audree in her favorite “happy color” — pink. The bright, beautiful shade perfectly represented everything Tiffany saw in her little trailer. Just look at this transformation!

Even Tiffany’s husband says she obsessed over every detail, spending every free moment immersed in her makeover project. “The kids were so tired of me making them sit in it!” she said. “Although, I did get a glowing 4 out of 5 stars on her makeover from my 15 year old!!”

Audree boasts baby pink paneling adorned with fun paper lanterns and a cute, plush white door. Everything about her is bright, fresh, and clean.

She’s even donned with a license plate featuring her namesake! Audree has arrived!

Tiffany is a cowgirl at heart, so she made sure to include country-themed decals on Audree’s windows. This one says, “Cowgirl Up.”

As you can see, the inside is just as adorable as the outside. Tiffany spared no expense when it came to Audree’s interior. Pops of color and extraordinary detail abound!

Tiffany loves pinboards with mementos on them, and she knew she wanted one in Audree to display favorite items and memories…

Check out the bay window, shag rug, paper lanterns, fuchsia furniture, and — my personal favorite — the vintage Robin’s egg blue stove! Simply fabulous!

Tiffany redid everything from the interior and exterior paint, adding new lighting as well as new doorknobs and hardware.

The banquette, now covered in white faux ostrich vinyl and featuring retro-modern light fixtures, is a fun place to gather and hang out with the girls.

Tiffany kept many of Audree’s original items from previous owner Amy inside. Here’s her enamel icebox, 1950s grey speckled flooring, and her gorgeous aqua countertops.

It’s the little touches like this one that make Audree so darn special.

Audree is lucky to have an owner like Tiffany. She’s the trailer that dreams are made of.
