Camper Revamper

I finally bought a camper this past spring and spent the first half of summer giving it a makeover. For a couple of years, I had been searching for a vintage camper, but then realized that we really wanted the beds to pop out so we would feel like we were still camping. I found this 2001 travel trailer on craigslist in April and bought it on the spot.
My first step was to paint the cabinets and replace all the hardware. I applied a coat of chalk paint because I had it on hand, but decided it would be too matte for this project. The second coat is a semi-gloss in a color called Hemingway.
While looking to replace the hardware, I fell in love with these jute knobs from Home Goods and key shaped pulls from the Home Depot.
The next phase was to replace the cushion fabric, and I chose Sunbrella in Cast Mist. It's a lighter color but cleans up great!
I also replaced the table legs and flooring in driftwood tones for a beachy vibe.
