This month, I introduced you to Our DIY Camper 2.0 – a new-to-us fifth wheel that I’m renovating for our family. Last week, I removed window cornices, wallpaper borders and MORE than I originally planned from the camper. This week, I started painting the camper and updated its adorable little kitchen!
Here’s how the kitchen camper area in our RV looked originally:
And here’s how the counter area looks NOW:
What a difference, right?! I’m mid-paint job on the cabinets, but I can’t wait to show you when them when they’re complete, too.
To make over this kitchen counter area on a budget, I first spray painted the faucet with Rustoleum’s Metallic spray paint in Pure Gold.
It went from this:
I didn’t remove the faucet, but instead taped carefully around it and created a DIY spray paint tent with a plastic bag & scrap wood.
You can see the whole tap painting process in this video:
Next, I installed a peel & stick tile backsplash. I did the same thing with our previous RV, and I was very happy with how it lasted and looked.
Here’s the peel & stick tile I used:
I love the marble hexagon pattern, and you can buy it from Amazon right here. I haven’t used this brand before, but it seems to have a very good adhesive. I did have some troubles with it because I started applying it to the wall on the bottom left instead of the top left (and had the tile facing the wrong way), but I was able to make it look good in the end.
To update the laminate countertop, I wrapped it in a large roll of marble patterned contact paper. I used this same product on my previous camper renovation, and was pleased with how it lasted and looked. You can even remove this later, so it’s a great way to update something on a budget! Buy this marble contact paper here.

The new textures and light, bright colours make such a difference in this area, and I can’t wait to show you the rest!
I’ve been painting for 10 days straight, and the difference in how the camper looks is incredible.
