Camper Renovation: Painting the Cabinets

  1. Marie M says:

    Deb & Danelle, it’s absolutely gorgeous!!

  2. Kjsvegan says:

    Your style is Beautiful and you make it look so easy, seamless at times. I enjoy following along and getting tips for my own renovations.

  3. Darlene says:

    Looks really good. I’m remodeling our camper right now. Working on the cabinets in the kitchen. I sanded mine lightly, then applied Glidden Gripper primer ( works awesome for paint to stick to) It’s a job, but the outcome looks so much better like you said. 🙂

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Yes… it sure is a big job. But when it’s done, you look back and see how much better it looks. Have fun.

  4. Karen Keown says:

    We have a Motorhome that I wish you could help my hubby with since I am having a total shoulder replacement this coming Tuesday. I would give anything to have him redo our 2001 Motorhome. But I don’t think he wants to spend any time on it! Oh well maybe some day we will upgrade. LOL

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      hahaha I get it. It’s a project, that’s for sure. It’s been so fun though.

  5. Angie says:

    Is the cabinet color “Pure White” as well?

  6. Ramona says:

    Gorgeous ladies. Y’all can take a turd and make it beautiful. So enjoy you both.

  7. Taya says:

    I am renovating right now! This was so helpful. Can’t wait to see you do the flooring. We to are doing vinyl wood plank. I was thinking about doing the vinyl wood planks behind the bed for a headboard look. Thanks for the instructions ❤️

  8. Kathy M says:

    You two could make anything beautiful! I love this so much! You know you have us all shopping Marketplace and Craigslist for campers now! LOL I would sure love to see what you could do to my 480 sf house. It needs your touch! Can’t wait to see what else you do to the camper. So much fun to watch.

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      ahaha awww thanks. I have several more projects up my sleeve on this little camper. Stay tuned.

  9. Barbara Warga says:

    What a difference! I can’t wait to see the end of this budget makeover! I’m sure it’s going to be gorgeous.

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Thanks…. I’m having so much fun. I forgot how fun it is to flip something.

  10. Paula Warren says:

    This is all beautiful. I am anxious to see how you style it when completed!

  11. Karen says:

    I think whatever D & D do turns out beautifully.

  12. MaryLisa says:

    I can’t believe it’s the same camper. It looks so amazing! WTG!!

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Thank you. I have LOVED working on it this week. I have so many more things planned.

  13. terri says:

    I wished that you both could come and redo our camper. I look forward to watching you guys so much. Very down to earth ladies. ❤️

  14. Maureen says:

    You girls make an amazing team. So much enjoying your work on the camper and can’t wait until you start on the house.

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Yay… thank you. I’m so excited to start the house too. But I sure am enjoying this camper project.

  15. Barbara says:

    Cannot tell you (though I previously did) how much I LOVE the transformation. I despise the ugly camper interiors that don’t appear to have changed in 70 years. And the ‘valances’ and where do they find the most unattractive, nausea inducing fabric patterns and the overload of faux brass, faux wood spindles??? It is hideous!!! Had a ‘park model’ trailer in the mud 90’s that I cutified and added a room. EVERYTHING you are doing is PERFECTION!!! You’ve gotten rid of the obnoxious ceiling cabinets & nullified the icky faux ugly wood by painting it out. I do love a creamy dreamy looking interior. The touch of green adds a lot (though I like them real lol). Love seeing the magic transpire. You’re such an inspiration and more importantly, SO MUCH FUN!!!

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      hahaha awww thank you. I agree. I swear that is one area of decor that hasn’t evolved. I have no clue why either.

  16. Glenda Shine says:

    I have been wanting to do this with our older 5th wheel trailer.
    Can you please share what paint and color that you used?
    Thank you so much!
    This is soooo beautiful!

  17. Glenda Shine says:

    Pardon my error. I have gone back to re-read and see that you used Kiltz Paint and Primer in white!
    Thank you for your constant inspiration!

  18. Maria says:

    Looks great so far! I would like to know who designs the campers. It certainly couldn’t be a woman!????

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      hahaha Oh my gosh…. They are so UGLY… I have no clue why they haven’t stepped up their game. It’s 2020.

  19. Tina Thomas says:

    Lovely and fresh!! Well done! ????
    My countertops were hideous and I painted them (Walmart paint) then applied several coats of poly. They were wonderful and held up just great!

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Thank you. I think I’m going to try the sticky paper. I’ve seen it done before.

  20. Kristin Lemons says:

    It looks so good!! I absolutely love the bunny print and fiddle leaf fig. They take away that camper feel and make it look like a home.

  21. Kara says:

    So cute! My husband just started looking at RV’s so all your tips will come in handy!

  22. Karen says:

    I just love this! At first glance, I didn’t realize it was your camper I was looking at! Can’t wait to see your other renovations! 🙂

  23. Nancy says:

    Wow! Not only on the transformation, but for all the work involved. Great job.

  24. Maggie says:

    Looks so good, I love it. Can hardly wait to see the rest. ????????????????????????

  25. Gina OConnor says:

    I’m curious. You didn’t do a finish coat of water based poly? Everything I’ve read said to do that. Of course I would love to skip that step. What’s your experience with that?

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      We did not. I’ve never done that when I painted cabinets. I, however, have never painted camper cabinets before but for as little as we will use them, I’m not worried.

  26. […] We did receive our white curtains and curtain rods, so those will be installed soon.  I cannot wait to see what those look like.  We have touch-up painting to finish on the cabinets and walls.  We haven’t touched the bathroom, so the walls and vanity both need two coats of paint.   We will be painting the vanity just like the kitchen cabinets. […]

  27. Dallas says:

    They look amazing! Did you put a top coat, finish, sealer? My wife and I are going to repaint our cabinets seen.

  28. Janet says:

    I love the cabinets! I don’t know why a camper manufacturer cannot get up to date on there interior design! I can’t wait to see the finished project!

  29. Diane says:

    Did you remove the wallpaper border? If so, how did you get rid of the stickiness?

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Yes, we removed it. And I don’t think there was any stickiness left. It all scraped off.

  30. Nanette says:

    What color of white do you use? Looking to do while and brown theme in living room like you have. I love it!!!
    Also I just love watching you two, lovely couple and you make me laugh????
    Thanks for reading,
    Nan in Ohio

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      hahaha awww thanks. I used plain white on the cabinets. The walls are SW Pure White

  31. […] that made THE BIGGEST difference was removing some of the upper cabinets.  And, of course, painting the remainder ones white.  We removed a few in the bedroom, one in the kitchen, and all of them in the living […]

  32. Susan says:

    This is amazing! You both have the most beautiful taste in everything. I’m not surprised the camper looks like a 5 star hotel! Love your blog and all of your ideas xo
