It takes a lot of time and patience to be able to create something out of your own two hands, but some people aren’t afraid to get a little dirty in the process.

There’s something satisfying about being able to say you made something beautiful and useful, as we’re sure the creators of the Hello Penny Mobile Bar are!

The bar’s home is a totally renovated 1946 trailer. When you see what the renovators started with, you’ll be surprised by the finished product. It’s beautiful and professional — we couldn’t do a better job ourselves.

In the photos below, you can see the slow but careful progress. The exterior has to be sanded, and the interior needs all new appliances.

The entire trailer is stripped to the bare minimum to allow for a totally new look!

Watch the trailer’s transformation for yourself!

This 1946 trailer was totally stripped to create a mobile bar.

The interior looks like it can be salvaged, but all it needed was a solid coat of paint to look brand new!

The trailer even got a brand-new floor!

After the exterior was sanded, it starts looking more and more like what it’s meant to be.


After the sinks are installed, it’s looking more complete by the day!

About halfway done, it’s hard to believe that this trailer is from 1946.


After a fresh coat of paint, it’s almost ready to be taken for a spin and be shown to customers.


Finally, it’s up and running!
