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.


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!


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!
