What a beautiful job
I'm looking for a license plate frame that says, "Vintage Driver"!

A question for you:
Are those tiles of some kind on your kitchen walls?
I love that look- can you give me some how-to's on that part of your project?

Thanks!

Francesca

I suspect it is this at Lowes:
Shop ACP Copper Kitchen Backsplash at Lowes.com

or EBAY

Dave78Chief is pretty much correct, except that we purchased from Menards, not Lowe's.

The backsplash tiles were 18"x24" plastic material, and they were about $16/tile. Lightweight and applied with construction adhesive, cut with a set of heavy shears.

I believe there were patterns in white, nickel and a dark oxidized bronze as well as the copper at our local store.

Easy and quick to put up- I love the look!

I imagine the tile would melt if I had a bad grease fire or something, but that would be the least of my worries if that happened.

Thanks to both of you "Chiefs" for the suggestions!
And Dave 78- that E-bay link led me to the store's site- they've got 25' rolls of polystyrene wall coverings, too, in various colors and patterns.
That might be exactly what I'm looking for to replace the Ensolite inside covering in my itty bitty Trillium!

Thanks again, guys

Francesca

Like the paint( thanks for the quick email reply).
You could also try Bontrager's RV in White Pigeon, MI for new chairs. Saw quite a few there end of May. If you go there, I'm sure you'll find a lot of other things you didn't know you needed

Francesca,

We have a kitchen island on which a heavy embossed wallpaper was used, to the exact same effect. You can then apply any finish you want to it. For the price of one or two tiles, you'll get enough paper to do the whole rig! (If you were closer, I'd give you the left overs).

And if I were closer, I'd probably take you up on that!

Isn't that the truth? We're always finding new things that are an absolute necessity! Fortunately, we'll run out of money sooner or later.

Looking good!! It always gives me a thrill to see an old girl get all gussied up for a new life.

Saturday I got some Astro Smart Eraser Pads ans began to remove the old faded and cracked stripes. When done we will do a solid color paint as you have. What color is to be determined. Happy Trails!!

Looks great, I'm in the process of finishing up mine. There's ALWAYS something that need fixing but to me thats the fun of it. I love to tinker. Question what type of paint did you use on the outside? How did you apply it?
Thanks JKaz

The paint is Interlux Brightside marine polyurethane paint. We applied it with a high-quality foam mini-roller and "tipped" it by dragging a foam brush lightly over each wet roller stroke to eliminate the tiny bubbles. Two handed painting; awkward at first but you get the hang of it pretty quick.
It gave us a smooth and shiny finish in 2 coats; we could have wet-sanded between coats for a glassy finish, but because the fiberglass underlaying the paint was rather rough we didn't bother.
Others might prefer to apply with a sprayer or use an automotive paint, but we were happy with our application, and plan to use the technique and the paint again.
