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.
Now in my book, it's not glamping-it-up unless there's a colorful tassel fringe!
As you can see from the "before" picture, the veneer cabinet color is a lovely wood grain that often reminds me of basement panelling. With that being said, I knew just the color to glamp these cabinets up...nothing says happy camper like "Happy Hour" paint by Country Chic. Happy hour is one of my favorites, check-it out on pinterest also to see more fun projects done in that color.
So, I got to work and once I started, I couldn't stop. I finished the cabinets and then decided to move on to the bench, the table, and almost got the dog! After two coats of paint I sealed it all with Country Chic Tough Coat to make sure it is protected.
I used the prexisting curtains and added on fabric to them to utilize the plastic parts that slide into a track to hang them. I was invisioning plaid or floral but couldn't pass up on the campers. I decided to do stripes in front of the beds and mini vintage campers for the sides along with the fun tassels.
I used chalkboard paint on the table for the kids to draw on and play games. I also added some restaurant style edison lights that are plastic hanging from the ceiling. It really added a fun touch! I just used some plastic 3M hooks to hang them from the ceiling.
I finished the whole project up with some astroturf carpet that I cut to size and velcroed in. I can pull it out and spray it off to clean it!
We are so excited to get the pop-up out and have a camping trip somewhere other than our driveway! Happy Camping Ya'll, thanks for stopping by!
