Camper Reveal {part two}


I really hope y'all enjoyed Monday's camper reveal! Today I'm sharing a detailed source list for all the goodies inside. I began dreaming of a bohemian vibe for this camper and I wanted it to have a little gypsy appeal but it had to have some vintage thrown in for good measure too. I have never decorated in a bohemian style before and it was challenging for me at first. I was a little uncomfortable with the style because there's no real rules, bohemian by it's very nature is mismatched. When styling bohemian, remember "what goes best with a pattern? Why, another pattern of course." I thought I'd start with my curtains. 


I'd been swooning over the Joel Dewberry patterns for their fun vintage and colorful vibe. Then, right to Urban Outfitters for the bed duvets and 4 more key pieces.

This is usually how I go about styling any space, pick out a handful of key pieces that I love and build the rest of the decor around them.

  6. Wow, again... I love it. I am so in love with the bohemian style and have been slowly transforming my home to this style. It's perfect for a camper though!

  7. OH this is awesome! We purchased a pop-up camper last year that looks VERY similar. May I ask, did you have to do any fancy work to change out the curtains for the windows? I'm scared to even touch mine, for fear of breaking them beyond repair. :)

    1. I'm afraid the word 'fancy' is not in my vocabulary! The curtains are attached to little plastic sliders with a thread similar to fishing line. We just tugged a little, breaking the thread but leaving the plastic sliders in place. I carefully cut the back liner off of the factory curtain so I could re-use it with the new curtain. I picked a favorite fabric, re-sewed the liner to it's back, and voila new curtains with a vintage flair. First try, I secured little velcro pieces to the plastic sliders in the camper with a corresponding velcro piece on the curtain for hanging, good in theory, didn't work with real use, the curtain was always falling down. I pulled out my trusty tube of super-glue, and glued those puppies to the sliders, works like a dream! Let me know if you have any other questions! Thanks for dropping by this morning!

  8. Love your re-do. And so I am starting one myself, except I have the problem of turning something new (a small 14 ft 2012 travel trailer)into something that will look vintage on the inside. I could not talk my husband into doing a pop up no matter so hard I tried! So I had to compromise. But he said I can do anything I want to it on the inside. So many awesome ideas I got from your makeover. Thank you so much for sharing!

  9. I have one that is so similar to your "before"! Did you replace mattresses? I desperately need to but don't know where to start! Also can you recommend door repair/replace sources? Mine is a wider door (which I absolutely love), but it's taken a beating over the years!

    1. Good morning! Our little camper was an old one, but in pristine, like new condition, which was awesome for us because we know nothing about redoing or replacing camper parts! Our re-do was strictly a cosmetic one. The mattresses were also in perfect shape and didn't need to be replaced, we only threw out the covering that comes standard on camper mattresses. I replaced it with a down mattress cover and down comforters, and it's wonderful! I wish I had some other advice for replacing items for you, but we didn't have any repairs that needed to be done on the camper itself. Thanks for dropping by today!
