From the very beginning, we knew we were going to paint the entire inside of the camper white. I have said it before that I wanted to stick with my woods and whites theme that I love so much. I quickly realized that there would be no “stuff” to decorate the camper. There will be faux plants, candles, etc, but I want my woods and whites camper to still feel warm. Adding wallpaper to the camper was my solution.
I searched for wallpaper on so many different sites. We are keeping the cost down for the camper renovation because we are saving for the house. So I kept “cost” and “woods and whites” in my mind while searching. I stumbled upon this woodlands theme wallpaper and fell in love. We are bird nerds ???????? so it fits perfectly with our taste. And for around $30 per roll, it is very budget friendly.
I have hung wallpaper more times than you know. I have also REMOVED wallpaper too many times to count. ???? Wallpaper has come a long way. You can watch any You-tube video on how to install it if you don’t know. But, I was getting lots of questions about what we did to prep the walls before applying this wallpaper.
The old paper that was in the camper was still in excellent condition. There were a few places that were loose in the corners. So, we removed those areas only and papered directly over the old. I have never removed wallpaper from a camper before but it almost seems like the original is contact paper quality. So I didn’t want to mess with that. We had a small camper years ago and I also wallpapered directly over the old and it held up excellent.
Well… I thought one roll of this woodland theme wallpaper would do the bathroom and this little dining area, but I thought wrong. ???? I have another roll on the way. Also, the wood look wallpaper that we hung in the bedroom as an accent wall is going to be installed as a back splash, too. AND… we ran out of that. ???? So that is also ordered. Those projects are to come.
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.
Deb will be installing new sinks and faucets and a new toilet. And, of course, some type of flooring. We also have some fun lighting coming up so stay tuned for that.
What do you think so far? Let me know here in the comments or over on Instagram. I usually post all of these projects on stories so be watching for fun things to come.
