New Cushions for the Casita

The new rear single bed and small dinette

I got the cushions finished last night.  So now my Spirit Deluxe has the twin beds that were so important to us.  The back cushions are pillow shams with pillows that can be stuffed behind our backs, under our knees, wherever needed for comfort.  And if needed, we could store off season bedding and clothing in them.

I had hoped to have the valances and coral throw pillows and accents completed before the trip, but I’m out of time.

I bought light brown runners and throw rugs to use on the floor to make it warmer and to cover the table leg holes in the floor.

Some thoughts on the new layout:

New twin bed where the small dinette used to be

I love the twin beds.  Knowing we won’t have to crawl over each other for bathroom visits at night is wonderful.

On days when we are stuck inside due to bad weather, we’ll have a lot more personal space this way.

I used 5″ foam for the dinette cushions because that’s what I had left from an Aliner bed.  But we are short and our toes barely touch the floor, so eventually I’ll have to redo them with 4″ foam.

I’m not sure what kind of table I’ll build.  I’m thinking of a drop side (not drop leaf) table.  But I think we’ll wait and see how we use the space on our trip and decide later.  We’ll temporarily use a folding TV tray.

Anyway, it’s a great relief to have the hard part done.  Now I need to mop the floor, put the rugs down, spray the beds and cushions with Scotchgard, then pack the food and clothes for the trip.
