Hairdresser Elsie Massey dreamed, since her childhood, of living in a house similar to her favorite game “Barbie”, and the years passed and she and her husband, Stephen Massey, renovated an old Cardinal travel trolley dating back to 1969, and converted it into a small house that resembled the house of the blonde toy, according to the website. insider“.
The old travel cart was a birthday gift for Elsie Massey from her husband, which the couple worked on restoring and renovating. “We did a quick repair of the cart and were surprised that some people asked us to borrow or rent the cart even though we had not finished restoring it,” Els said.
The couple were able to renovate the cart and turn it into a small Barbie-like house, where the bathroom walls were transformed into epoxy walls to match the car. “.
The couple was keen to cover the bathroom with a colored floor to match its walls, and the cart from the outside contains a retractable bar and stained-glass windows, and the trailer from the outside is painted in pink and white, and the windows are tinted.
The drawers feature flower-shaped pulls and each is filled with themed posters, such as Lisa Frank, Disney Princess or Barbie, and the ceiling is covered in rainbow colors.
Initially, the couple were planning to renovate the camper for less than $10,000, and Stephen talked about the cost of the renovation saying, “The bathroom wood was only $1,000 for teak…so by the time we made the teak, the epoxy, the bathroom, the masonry, everything, We spent $5,000 in the bathroom.”
