"Sunny" Gets a Make-over

Since I introduced our new little camper, Sunny, I thought I'd share what transpired in the week following Sunny's homecoming...

 







































Needless to say, I couldn't wait to get my hands on the Sunny's VERY outdated interior...We had a camping trip planned for the following weekend, so I only had a few days to get the inside to a point where I wouldn't cringe when I stepped inside. Since I'm a "girl on a budget", I had only a little bit of money to invest in this project(only about $100 to be exact) and had to think of what we already owned to turn the 70's flavor ,brown, brown, and more brown interior into something fun, clean, and cozy...

Before... 








































After!





  



W started by giving the walls and ceilings a fresh coat of white paint, and I also repainted the top kitchen cabinets white with red trim. We pulled out all of that yucky white carpet and redid the floor in a wood-grain linoleum. It was super easy to install, and is now easy to clean and sweep.
Sunny needed a whole new set of curtains (There were 13 of them!) and since I couldn't afford brand new material with my budget I found a old favorite set of sheets in our linen closet, with a sweet robin's-egg-blue circle pattern, that I re-purposed into curtains and dining room seat covers. The cream valences are made from a salvaged roll of muslin that I had in my stash, and I capped them with a thin run of pretty red ribbon...

The little flowered throw, shown above, is made from sewn together handkerchiefs that N and I had as table decorations at our wedding last year. I chose my favorite squares and sewed several runs together to make this little throw quilt. The red and white pillow is re-purposed from our guest room (because its red and white of course;) The fried egg throw pillow is one that I made using scraps of fabric I had laying around. After all, whats camping with out fried eggs in a skillet for breakfast;)
Our favorite part is the faux tin back-splash we installed in the kitchen and on the facade of the fridge (this was our big splurge). 

We can't wait to keep working on Sunny:) Stay tuned!!

  1. I love the faux tin in your camper kitchen! What a great idea! We have the same panels in our half bath ceiling and I love the pattern. What a creative way to use it!!
