Yesterday I finally started blogging about my process of turning my 1963 Shasta into THE Glitter Glamper! I shared some of the uglier work yesterday: removing a little rot, fixing a dent and sealing up holes. Today I thought I’d share one of the “prettier” projects: the glitter backsplash! As I mentioned last time, theContinue reading “Glitter Glamper Progress: Epoxy Resin Glitter Backsplash”
