Camper Master Bedroom Remodel

After we completed the bathroom remodel and gave it a farmhouse feel, we knew we had to follow the design throughout the camper. Next up was our master bedroom! This was what I had originally considered the dark hole. It was so dark and boring! Wait until you see the after of this one!


The most important step in remodeling a camper is to sand every single surface that is going to get painted. For the master bedroom, that pretty much meant the ENTIRE room! Prepping the surfaces is probably the most time consuming part of remodeling a camper!


After sanding everything, you'll need to prime everything! I really like Zinsser Primer and used it on the entire camper. For this, I used a roller where I could to minimize paint strokes.


Everything got a fresh coat of paint! I painted the walls with Sherwin Williams Repose Grey and the cabinets in Peppercorn. The shiplap was painted in Alabaster.


What I've learned about changing up our camper is that the decor makes a world of difference! Imagine this space with just the walls and cabinets painted, but no decor. Would have the same effect on you? I don't think so. Bring in some decorations and decor that makes your camper feel more like home.

    Did you cover blinds at the headboard or was it already like that? I have day/night shades at the head of my bead. I also live in my camper.

    • Hi Sherry! We have a solid wall there! I've had several people ask me that, so I guess it's pretty common to have a window there.

    Beautiful! Did you use an oil based primer?
