The Vardo - Painting & Trim Part 1

The photos you'll see are in stages.  As we had to work around the rain to get the job done.  We started by selecting our base colors.  We went with a deep wine as the body and a purple glitter paint as the bottom.  We'll use the purple as accents on the windows and a nice green for the over all trim.

We applied two coats of primer and then two coats of the paint to see our finished look on the vardo.

The door we picked up at a Re-Store for 13.00 dollars.  Eli had to cut the bottom off to make it fit.

We applied two coats of primer to the entire body.
