Camper Bedroom Before and After

Come join the before and after parties today! Sanctuary Arts

Thrifty Decor Chick


and Between Naps on the Porch.


We didn't get a great before photo. The camper had a leak that had gotten in the back wall. My husband took down all the cabinets and replaced the back wall. Notice the etched glass and 90's upholstery panels.







This is the set above the sofa, but is the same colors as what was above the bed in the bedroom.




This is mid way through. We put in bead board paneling on the back wall for a cottage look. We had painted the cabinets here.









We did not need to replace the wall behind this nightstand so it was not done with the others.








Here she is after. I put a cream and taupe colored gingham upholstery piece in the panels. I found it on the clearance table for $1.99 at Hancocks Fabric. We just painted the knobs the same as the doors. We thought about either doing them silver or bronze but decided to leave them white. All the rest of the camper is still brass, so it blends a little better for now.






I am using a candlewicked white bedspread that I have had forever from my mom. I bought the shams on clearance at Marshalls. I made the front pillow out of scraps of my fabric stash. The quilt on the end of the bed is one of two that the girls had when we lived in Florida.








The etching on the glass came off and now it is just clear glass. So much better!





I am in love. I just want to go stare at her now.







My little LuLu is getting herself taken care of little by little.

Love it! You have made it so cozy and homey! I always wonder who comes up with camper interiors- even the new ones are so cold and not the cozy I like. I would love to tackle a camper reno one of these days! Enjoy yours!

I swear we have the same layout on campers and you have inspired me....My bedroom looks exactly the same...we had a leak on the side wall. Was it hard to replace? I will have to do part of the floor as well. Thanks for posting this....I need to show it to my hubby.

Oh I love all the white. It looks much better. Most people would never think of updating a camper or trailer because they wouldn't know that you could. Good for you!

Oh My Gosh!!! Who would think of a makeover on a camper. Cottage white! I love it. Your bedding is just the best!

Oh, I really like the pictures of your camper. Since Honey recently retired, we've been looking at campers. We are wanting a vintage 'canned ham' camper (shasta,I think) to rework and make it our own!

Looks Great! How did you remove the etching from the glass? I want to do this to my camper.
