You guys… we are wrapping up this camper bathroom remodel project. Can you even believe it? I can. ???? It seems as though we have been working on this FOREVER. But, we really haven’t. We couldn’t do much to it through the Winter. Winters are very cold here in Indiana. Even with the heat on, the outside temps are so cold that the paint actually ran off the walls everywhere there was a metal stud in the walls. So this Spring, we started with a little sanding project. ????
After that, things ran smooth except for a few issues Deb had trying to figure out the electrical situation in a camper. The electric is opposite as that in a house. She did some online research and reversed the sconces that she hung and everything worked. And, she had some plumbing issues, but those got resolved after a few beers and a good nights sleep. ???????????? The plumbing issues were that she couldn’t get the faucet in the bathroom hooked up without leaking because of the difference in camper faucets and house faucets. We bought a regular house bathroom faucet because the price is less and they look so much prettier.
Moving on to the bathroom reveal. AND…. a quick little DIY towel rack that I shouldn’t even call a DIY because it’s just so simple… but makes a big statement and was practically free.
If you missed any of the other spaces in this camper renovation, there are lots of different posts. I already shared the bedroom and the dining room (slide out). We replaced the banquette type table that most campers have and replaced it with a floating shelf table. We painted all of the cabinets and then gave the countertops a fresh look with peel and stick countertop paper. Along with adding wallpaper in the dining area and peel and stick wooden paper on the backsplash and bedroom accent wall. And, we added some trim around the doors. I think we have pretty much touched every single square inch. Oh.. we also replaced the flooring which I will be sharing about soon.
The bathroom was so dark and dreary before. The vanity and trim all got a coat of semi-gloss white, right off the shelf. (no mixing) And, the walls got painted the same as the rest of the camper – Sherwin Williams Pure White. We used the same peel and stick countertop paper as we did in the kitchen to freshen up the bathroom as well. And, the same woodlands theme wallpaper that is in the dining room.
I added a ruffle shower curtain that was from my collection with Antique Farmhouse and it really brightened up the space. I added a simple fern for my decor in there because it needed something. It will have to be put inside the cabinets when we pull it over to the lot.
The wall behind the toilet needed something. But, as I’ve said before, you have to keep weight in mind when adding to a camper. We removed several cabinets, the banquette set, and the carpet that was original. So I wasn’t too worried about it, but every time I add something I want to make sure it will make a big statement for little money and little weight.
I thought about some type of picture, but we really needed a towel rack. I’ve had this thin little wooden piece in my stash for so long and didn’t know what to do with it. We decided to hang it directly to the wall using some trim screws. And, then added three screw-in coat hooks to make our own towel rack. We now have a pretty place to hang up our bath towels and a hand towel for the bathroom.
This little DIY towel rack costs us a few dollars. It’s so functional and it matches my woods and whites theme that I love so well. You could pretty much make your own DIY towel rack out of really any architectural piece you have laying around by simply adding some hooks.
What do you think? ???? I can hardly wait to pull it over to the woods and spend the night in here.
