Camper Remodel, Part 2

This is the second post on remodeling our little camper. The first post you can find here:
Camper Remodel, Part One.

We purchased our used little camper a couple years ago. We love to tent camp and will continue to do so but I always wanted a little camper. I am in love with small vintage campers and although our camper is not vintage it works great as our first. Our camper is 16 foot long but very cozy and just right for us and our three dachshunds.

As stated in my first camper remodel post the interior color scheme was light blues which is not my favorite interior color.


I decided to recover the cushions, make new curtains and even make a matching quilt for the bed. To see the remodel and before and after photos of the dining area of the camper take a look here: Camper Remodel.

blues and pinks, cute and cozy but not for us.

This post covers the bed and bath area remodel of our camper. The old curtains and bedding in the camper matched the dining area colors of dated and drab light blues.
So for the bed area and bath, I decided to stay with the color scheme my husband had picked out of all bright colors.
I made a quilt using some of the fabrics I used for the dining cushions and front curtains and also added the fabric I used for the shower curtain and curtains over the bed.

  



Since the Patchwork Quilt is made of all the fabrics, it pulls everything together.
I am in the process of making matching pillow cases for the bed too!

Using the existing curtain rods, I made the valances and curtain panels. The curtain panels are lined to provide a little privacy.  I may or may not add curtain tie-backs.  Still deciding if they are even needed in this area.




The finished camper quilt.   I also made the shower curtain with the same material as the backing on the quilt.

I added artwork (an oil painting in bright colors and artwork my daughter made for me.  

For the bath I added bright color towels and made a shower curtain with the same fabric as the quilt backing.  Photos of the new shower curtain and the old one. 

  


This camper remodel has been fun and I'm excited to camp for the first time this year.

Happy trails,
Elizabeth

Great job! We sold our little camper a few years ago. This makes me want it back so I could fix it up with fun colors and textures. Enjoy! Leslie

We have the same taste, and I am in love! Your work is excellent, the colors are perfect. I also appreciate how you acknowledged the 'before' was cute, but for someone else. I don't like how other blogs show a before picture and say 'yuck', when there's nothing yucky about it. It simply isn't that person's style. Amazing job!

Thanks! And your so right, if I didn't have the means or ability to redo the camper the blue cozy colors would have been fine. There was really nothing wrong with this little camper, we just wanted to brighten it up. Thanks so much for the comment!
