Eeeeek! I’m so excited to share the final look of our camper’s main room with you today. It’s taken over two months to complete this RV makeover, but I love this vintage glam look. Come see how the main area makeover of Our DIY Camper 2.0 turned out, plus all the steps it took to get here!
All “after” photos in this blog post are by Tracey Jazmin.
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
- converted the entertainment unit into a coffee & drinks bar
Today, I’m thrilled to share the final look of the RV’s main room with you!
Here’s how Our DIY Camper 2.0 looked before:
And here’s our camper NOW:
I’m completely enamoured with this light, bright look and all of the soft & feminine accents!

What do you think of the difference? I feel like it’s a whole new space, and my girls and husband adore it. We took the rig out once already, and we love how it functions for our family.
As you know, sourcing and shopping for products has been a huge challenge lately, and there are still a few things in here that I didn’t get a chance to complete. There are a couple cupboard handles missing, and I’d love to build a corner bench for more seating around the table. Other than that, I’m sure proud of how this space turned out! It was a TON of work, but definitely worth it in the end.

My favourite part of any room makeover is styling it at the end, and our new camper was no exception! I ordered the furniture from Structube and IKEA a while ago, and I was so happy when it all arrive. I think it fits the space well, and it was all very affordable (the IKEA table was on sale for $140 when I got it!).
Most of the other items here are things I already had on hand from the dollar store, grocery store, and my random collection of accessories. I’m digging this pallete of pink, gold and mint green that my daughters helped me choose!
For travel, I store many of the accessories in the baskets and cupboards we have in the RV, the sofa stays loose (so far), and I flip the dining table upside down.
There’s still the kids bunk room, the bathroom, and the main bedroom to renovate, but I’m so happy this main area is complete! I might do the bunk room this summer, but leave the rest for next Spring. We’ll see how energetic I feel!
What do you think of this vintage glam camper makeover? Happy summer! We can’t wait to make more memories here.
