Prettify your camper
I didn't get a great picture with the beds all made up, but you get the gist of it! If we girlies are going to camp...why not prettify your camper or tent. Have some creature comforts from home! I'm not big on being all rustic like Grizzly Adams, so when I camp, I make sure it looks cute and I have some necessities.
Make slipcovers for the cushions. There must be a person who is sitting there saying "Let's pick out the ugliest fabric we can find and put it in all campers everywhere." Really, fabric in campers are ugly. I'm sorry if you're a camper manufacturer...but it's true. You must know the truth...women everywhere can't stand the fabric used in campers. So...dress up your camper. Prettify it with fabric!
I made these cute slipcovers for the cushions and covered all the valance's. Everything easily unscrews and I just used my staple gun to staple the fabric on. I didn't even take the ugly fabric off...just stapled right over the top. I used a twin sheet to make the curtains, slipped them on spring rods and popped them inside the valance. I'm always looking for sheets when I'm out...there are some great patterns and you can use them for a variety of things like curtains, pillows, slipcovers...it's limitless.
I was thinking about painting and then thought about putting the beadboard wall paper on the walls. What do yall think? Has anyone painted the interior of a camper? How'd you do it?
