Turning my Camper into a Glamper -- Part 3: The Reveal

Hey Blog Friends,   Summer just flew by....can you believe we are already into the 2nd week of September.  I kind of took the summer off from blogging to spend time with my family at Emerald Lake and finish the camper to glamper renovation.  I really wanted to blog about the entire process and I took many photos throughout the renovation but then I was just to exhausted at the end of the day to write about it.   Now so many of you have been asking to see what it looks like now, so I`ve decided to switch things around.  This blog post is all about the reveal....and now that the girls are back in school, I can spend some time writing some posts about the process and how my husband & I dealt with some of the challenges of renovating a travel RV.  So its a bit backwards but hey who says there has to be strict rules to blogging. Remember what it looked like when I wrote about it here....... Camper Before Collage Scary wasn`t it?  Well, not anymore.  So let me take you through my brand new Glamper room by room.  We went with a blue and white nautical theme throughout the camper (you can see my vision board here) and pretty much stayed consistent except for the girls` room, where I added a lot more colour.  Oh, and please keep scrolling down.....there are a ton of pictures that I don't want you to miss....thanks.

Living & Dining Room:

IMG_3207 (600x800) IMG_3198 (600x800) IMG_3199 (600x800) Getting rid of the ugly sofabed was the best thing we did in this camper.  Adding in these 2 white wicker chairs just lets the space breathe and is the perfect spot to cozy up with morning coffee and my IPAD. Camper Living room chairs Can you believe this ugly brown couch used to be here! Gaaaaaahhhhhh! Camper LR Before and After We had storage above the old sofa in the living room and also at the top of the entertainment unit, but I decided to remove cupboard doors and use it instead to showcase some pretty accessories that tied into our nautical theme. IMG_3222 (600x800) As you can see I didn't have a chance to fill my frames with natucial artwork from Etsy - which is the plan. Camper large shelf details IMG_3217 (800x600) Camper Shelf Details My husband installed this gorgeous wide plank vinyl flooring in Silverbirch grey from one of my suppliers ProSource Flooring.  It`s waterproof so I highly recommend this type of flooring for areas that may get damp (ie: a basement or a camper).  My husband even spray painted the vents grey to match the flooring......it`s all about the designer details!! IMG_3271 (600x800) I absolutely love the lighting we purchased.  The pendants are from IKEA and the lantern sconce is from Home Depot! Camper LR Lighting All the little details really help make our camper renovation come together...it`s like a little cottage on wheels or as I like to call it `the Glamper.`  Confession time: the striped drapery that you see here is not really drapery -- its a fabric shower curtain that I found at Target! YES!!!   I had a seamstress cut each shower curtain in half and hem it for the height of the glamper (so for 4 windows I needed 4 shower curtains...what a steal!)  I thought this was pretty genius on my part.  (patting myself on the back now) :-) Camper LR Details These adorable dining stools purchased at Ikea are perfect for the dining area as they can be easily pulled out for seating or quickly hidden under the new kitchen table Camper Dining Stools

 The Kitchen

I`m really pleased how the kitchen area turned out also.  We painted out all the upper & lower cabinetry in White Dove, revamped the countertop using Rust-oleum`s Countertop Transformations product, installed a new stainless steel sink with new faucet, changed out the hardware and added some restickable wallpaper from Simple Shapes  (in a later blog post I will take you through the kitchen transformation and tell you what happened when we tried applying backsplash) IMG_3242 (800x600) IMG_3243 (600x800) I do so love my blue bird restickable wallpaper!!! Camper Bird Wallpaper Details The new stainless steel sink and faucet. IMG_3236 (600x800) We purchased our beautiful silver and white hardware at Home Depot. Camper Kitchen Details We also reupholstered the ugly brown valances above each door in pretty fabric purchased from Tonic Living. IMG_3227 (800x600)


Our tiny bathroom also went through a transformation.  Again, everything was painted in White Dove, we bought a new vanity and a polished nickel faucet with a vintage vibe, changed our toilet to a porcelain toilet and added some nautical accents from Ikea, Target and found this perfect old lifesaver buoy from the Aberfoyle Antique market.  You can see that we reupholstered the valance above the bathroom door in this adorable starfish fabric also from Tonic Living.
