Check out this 1960 AirStream turned into a house!

Lookie what I just stumbled across… this is a 1960 AirStream that has been completely remodeled into a non-mobile mobile home, and then added on to! It’s for sale right now in Seal Beach, California. Yes, there is even a freaking fireplace. Holy crap, I’m in love with this “house.” Wanna peek inside the 1960 AirStream house with me?

From mod to modern: ’60s-era dresser makeover

Offbeat Homie Jessica — aka “Not Exactly Martha,” aka the mastermind behind that bishop chair makeover — uploaded her newest makeover to our Flickr pool.

For the Muppet-lovers in the house: a ’60s Kermit-green bedroom

I found this ’60s-era magazine clipping on Flickr last weekend — of a very Kermit-the-Frog-esque bedroom — and I’ve looked at it like, every day since. What would you incorporate from a vintage design?
