Happy Summer ya'll! I've been waiting for it to warm up since fall. It was a looong cold winter here in the midwest and I am so excited to peel off my 600 down parka and soak up some sun. Today I'm going to show you my little spring project where I glamped-out my pop-up camper! Our dear friends from Denver, Colorado retired and decided to upgrade to a large camper. They called us and said they would like to give us the pop-up camper and for us to continue creating amazing memories as they did when their kids were little. We were ecstatic. It is made in the 90's and is in mint condition. They have always taken good care of it and kept it in the garage since they have owned it. All of the canvas is in perfect condition as well as the cushions for the benches and beds so I chose fabric and colors to coordinate with them.

I love the shape and detail of the backs and I just knew if I dug deep into my armoire of paint I would pull out the perfect color to accompany one of my favorite fabrics.

After giving the chairs a good wipe down, I put on a nice even coat of "Fresh Mustard" by Country Chic Paint. Then I lightly sanded with 220 grit to smooth out any brush strokes, and topped them off with another coat of paint and a durable coat of Tough Coat to help protect against the daily wear & tear by these two (see exhibit "a" & "b").
I really think this color just screams - bright, bol...
You know when you see a piece of furniture and you just feel the need to buy it? Well, this charming table was priced right & has that french provincial curviness that everyone loves! I think it's the perfect size for an entry table or a sofa table, actually now that I think about it, it would be so cute as a vanity in a powder bath as well!

I began by painting two even coats on the entire table & I lightly sanded with 220 grit in between coats. When working with a smooth, sleek surface like this top, I really try to stretch the paint from one end to the other to avoid any unwanted brush strokes. Sanding...
