Ok so I’m not one for camping and “roughing it.” My idea of camping includes a cabin, a fire place, and a glass of wine. However, pretty sure Mario could live in the wilderness, never shower, and still be happy. We met in the middle and compromised (within our budget). I originally asked for an airstream but 20k was a little over budget. So we purchased this 1995 pinewood camper. For $1800, I now had a working sink, stove, toilet. And we also had heat. And because I’m born and raised from Arizona, I can be classified as a wimp as I can’t survive temperatures below 60 degrees.
After watching hours of Chip and Joanna Gaines we decided to renovate. We didn’t just want a camper, we wanted a glamper. “Glamorous camping”. Now we’re talking…
After a little paint, some re-upholstery work, some more sewing, some wallpaper, some deep cleaning, and a lot of elbow work (I can’t take credit for much besides the sewing), we were officially “glamped out”.
Take a look at our before and after pictures:
“The abbadessa’s” loop made by @thistleandthreaddesign. This is the daintiest, prettiest peice of custom artwork you can buy.
Phases of the moon garland made by: @westward notions. Perfect for all you wanderlust hearts.
Dish towels made by @thevintagehomestudio This isn’t my first dish towel by the vintage home studio. They hold up, they are quality dish towels, perfectly modern and vintage all at the same time.
Hand soap, body oil, chap sticks made by @whisperingwillow. They have the best smelling hand soap you can buy. You need only the smallest amount which means it lasts a long time. The body oil is the best smelling body oil. It isn’t thick and sticky. I actually use it daily as apart of my perfume. You can also use while camping as lavender is a natural insect repellant. Chap sticks: not waxy and not oily, great consistency and quality.
Essential oil carrier sticks made by @thecarrierstick. These are the perfect size to fit in purse or hiking bag. Works perfect for camping as you can use essential oils with the carrier stick for a natural insect repellant.
