PUP Remodel is COMPLETE! Where to!?

Glamping. Yeah, heard of it? I'm sure you can guess it's origin just by hearing it and you either think it sounds ridiculous or awesome.

GLAM + CAMPING = GLAMPING

Oh yes we did. My husband and I have been dying to get our hands on a camper to spruce up and make our own. We work so hard and so nonstop, that we need a getaway. A pop up camper was the perfect, affordable, solution! After weeks and weeks of keeping up on all the campers listed on Craigslist, I finally got my hands on one!

Below are our remodel pictures. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do :) It took one week to complete the remodel and a whole lot of elbow grease!

BEFORE:

Purchase Price: $1200.00
1994 Palomino Pop Up Camper


She wasn't much to look at, but her bones were good. It didn't smell funky and nothing was rusted out. It had rained the night before and there was no leaking shown in the canvas.


God awful patterns. Who designs this stuff? They seriously need to consider hiring me.


The outside just needed some cleaning.


Tore this ice box out to spray paint it, and glad I did! I found a nasty mouse nest that smelled SO terrible once we opened it up. Bleached the stink out of there!


Primed and Painted the countertops with countertop paint we had from The Home Depot. Three coats to make sure it was nice and strong. Man does that stuff stink! Oil based for sure.


I seriously can't get my dogs out of this camper. I think they love all the cushy places to sleep!


Primed and painted all the cupboards with exterior paint to make sure it holds up baking in the sun and any possibility of water getting in. Plate wear looks ceramic, but it's truly the Threshold Collection at Target and completely plastic. They'll be easy to clean and store while camping. Same goes for the blue glasses (plastic). Table runners and placemats are from Target as well. Let's just call a spade a spade, I'm a Target JUNKIE!




Spray painted the ice box and faucet to blend in a little more and take away the dingy colors. New knobs and hinges were the perfect touch and not that expensive!


Found this 3-in-1 oven from The Home Depot online. A fellow PUP remodeler posted it on Instagram and I knew I had to have it!


The cushions are just covers I sewed with snaps. They fold over the original cushions in a way that you'd wrap a present and then snap together. Snap them off to wash! Got the fabric in the clearance section at my local fabric shop for $3.00 a yard! 




The cream curtains I sewed myself. Found bargain fabric, again for $3.00 a yard. The red medallion curtains I found at Target in their curtain section. A simple cut right in the middle of them and a tension rod with clip hangers and you've got yourself some color and easy to change out curtains!

  5. Great! I just messaged you! We're just taking her an hour and a half away to Manistee for some camping at Orchard Beach State Park with six friends. Should be an awesome time!

  6. Hi Rose! I'm interested in hearing more details regarding the countertop paint that you used... I've been researching Rustoleum Countertop paint, but it looks like it has mixed reviews, including some that have mentioned that it's was difficult to get a smooth finish. Any recommendations/pointers that you are willing to share are appreciated! Thanks!!!

    1. Hi Daisy! Yeah my husband purchased the cheap rollers and it really did not have a smooth finish. You can purchase really smooth rollers for a better finish and I think it would work fine. You just don't want to purchase inexpensive rollers because you'll get all those fuzzies in the paint even if you try to remove the extra pieces first.

    2. I noticed you painted the trim on the counters as well. Could you tell me how the Rustoleum counter paint has held up?

  7. Think you could head on over one afternoon and help with my 1997 Jayco? He he..... Working on moving out of the 90's! Your color choices are beautiful!!

  8. I would be interested in how you sewed your cushion covers with the snaps. Working on redoing our pop.

    1. Ditto on this! I have 3 boys and a dog so easy cleaning snaps would be awesome!

    2. I sewed the edges of the fabric and then folded them over the cushions like you would wrap a present. I then added the snaps where needed to keep them in place. It's great to be able to just wash them after a trip!

  9. Rose,
    I love the fabric you chose to recover your cushions in. Do you happen to know the brand or the maker of the grey ticking that you used?

    1. Oh man, I really have no idea. I'm so sorry! I got all my fabric at a store near me called Fields Fabrics and it was all on clearance.

  10. I love everything about this PUP! It's my inspiration for the one we just bought. I really like your wood bowl. Where did you find it and what do you keep in it? Where did you find the flooring?

    Awesome job!

  11. This is beautiful! I have the same camper/layout but mine is a 1999! I think I'm going to start my redo! I was wondering what it would look like if I painted the cabinets and it's so much nicer! Great work!

  12. Rose, this is awesome!!! I have the same camper - only one less sitting area!
    I am working on our remodel as we speak and I have a couple questions for you! 1. How do you get the tension rod to stay over the bunk ends?? And how are you hanging the curtains along the side of the camper (not the bunkends) 2. Where did you get that grey bedding!!?? :) Thanks!

  13. We just bought our first pop up and I am amazed at your makeover! Such an inspiration! The most daunting task to me is the cushion covers. I am pretty good at sewing, but I am worried about the time commitment, I would love to see a photo of the back to see how the snaps work.

  14. Thus is just lovely. Can you show one of the cushions wrapped step by step?

  18. "Once the cabinets were painted, she used Rustoleum countertop paint in Cobblestone to give the countertops a whole new look. Rose primed the countertops first, then she applied three even coats of countertop paint to the surfaces to make sure they would stand the test of time."
    WHAT BRAND/COLOR T-TRIM DID YOU USE AROUND THE COUNTERS? IT LOOKS LIKE IT MATCHES WITH THE COBBLESTONE COLOR. THANKS!
