Come see how I transformed the entertainment unit in our RV into a handy coffee and drink station!
Here's what I've done in the camper so far:
- removed window cornices, wallpaper borders and MORE than I originally planned
- updated the kitchen with peel & stick back splash and countertop
- painted all the walls, trim and kitchen cabinets
- laid new vinyl plank flooring throughout the main area
- transformed the light fixtures into beaded boho features for only $7 each
This week, I've converted the dated entertainment unit into a practical and cute coffee and drinks bar that the whole family can use.
Here's how the entertainment unit looked before:
And here's how it looks as a coffee and drink station now:

To begin this makeover, I had a lot of fun smashing up the original unit with my many muscles (ha!) and a hammer. I removed all of the doors, and most of the trim.
Then, I moved a shelf and trim piece down to counter height to create a counter area. As much as we love this new-to-us RV, there isn't a lot of counter space. This helps create a little more of it in our camper!
Next, I sanded, primed and painted all of the wood and laminate in the unit. I used Behr Whisper white for the interior, and Behr River mist for the exterior. You can see my whole step-by-step camper cupboard painting process right here.
The large baskets are from Walmart earlier this year, and they fit nicely in the alcove beneath the counter. I also hung the IKEA Fintorp rail (painted gold) for extra mugs, and a Samsung TV we had from our last camper.
I love how this looks and functions, and you can see a sneak peek at how everything is looking together in the picture above! I'll share the whole finished main space of the camper with you next.
