Oh my goodness world! My trailer is really shaping up. A few weeks ago, I posted the layout of what I wanted my cabinets to look like on the blog. Now they have really come to life!

In this picture you can see how the top of the work bench on the right has a cutout in it. Those two pieces of wood lift up and have an inset pocket for my letterpress to fit in! How amazing. I can remove the wood when in use and replace it when I need to have a full workspace. It also keeps the machine out of direct sunlight and prying eyes.

Here is the trailer when I am sitting in the “couch.” Throughout this project, that is the only part that I didn’t rip apart or alter. The guy who owned it before me took such good care of the floor in that section, there was no need. He also has little lights installed there that dimmed and looked fabulous – the most I will do is paint the teal a different color.

In the distance there you can see little pocket shelves that line the back wall. They store my screens perfectly and one is peaking out in this shot.

Here is the bench from the front. None of the doors have handles so that way I don’t walk into them and hit my shin or thigh while working. Instead they have grooved tops and bottoms. The one on the top left is a drawer and the bottom ones are 30 inches deep! Plenty of storage. The bench area also covers the wheel so you don’t see it. I plan on leaving the wood on top exposed and only painting the sides.

Just behind the cabinet in this shot is my exposure unit for screen printing. I put it in there early so they could build around it. There is a little piece of plywood on the right side and base to support it during transport. I plan on trying to use an old seatbelt belt to hook it in place for safety.

It is hard to believe how this little guy started! I just want to drop everything and work in it. I keep having to remind myself that soon enough, I can work in it everyday if I want to!
