New Camper Birdhouse for Pink Saturday 5/30/09

This is the little camper birdhouse I made in January and sold. I didn't want to sell it because I wasn't sure I could find another one since this was the only one they had at the time. But I did find a couple more and am making another one for OUR camper. It will NOT be for sale. But I thought I'd show you how it came together in case you might want to make one for yourself.

I finished this one the other day and it will definitely go into the camper that I've named the Rose Cottage Camper.

Garland and rose on top along with the name of the camper.

I started with a good sanding first and then painted some parts pink since they won't be covered with fabric.

Wheels will be covered with fabric though.

Some of the fabric might be lighter than others so the pink paint will help the wood to not show through.


  1. What a precious little trailer. it reminds me of one my Great- Grandmother had for years and years. It wasn't pink though. Just tiny and sweet, and crammed full of things. Happy Pink Saturday and I hope you are hanging in there, God Bless!

  2. Oh that is just toooooooooo cuuuuuuuuute! Where oh where did you find a mini wooden camper?

  3. Hi Connie that is such a sweet Birdhouse

  4. Thank you for the tutorial Connie. I was on a blog the other day where sisters had a yearly outing with their little campers. I was in awe how everyone decorates them differently. Then I watched a show all about the teacup trailers. Your trailer is absolutely adorable.

    Happy Pink Saturday.
