Campers are just like tiny houses! I love miniature things and Jon was so kind as to let me redecorate his newest purchase, this sweet vintage pop-up camper. He did nothing but research campers and craigslist his butt off for weeks, and here is our beautiful result:
Purchased at a steal from a guy named Aaron in WY- He was super nice and helped Jon install the camper.
We took the LOOOONG way home, due to the highway being closed, and it was the best drive ever- Snow on the mountains, and wildflowers on the ground!
If you've never been over Guanella Pass, CO, please make it a priority, it was so cool!
We did some renovations over the next couple weeks:
We just put a blanket over the top bed part, with my novice upholstery skills I deemed it too ambitious. It's been working beautifully.
Here's an example up close:
So it's turned out to be adorable, and it's been one of the most rewarding projects ever.
The upholstery fabric cost about $80 (Hobby lobby, and I used a coupon)
I needed a new staple gun and staples, $10
The curtain/pillow fabric is from JoAnn and was about $40, plus $10 for a pillow form.
So the actual DECORATING cost of this project so far has been only $160.
We still plan to change out the carpeted areas, and Jon has already done some re-wiring and propane-related things that I didn't include here.
Turns out I might be into camping after all!
