a little makeover for Colene

October 28, 2018

When we first got our vintage Scamp camper about 6 or so years ago I wanted to keep some of her original 80's features like the plaid covers on the cushions and the green fridge face.

I did change the curtains to a bright red floral with a matching pillow, switched out the cabinet knobs to a retro style mismatched set matching the curtains, and added a braid rug.  Here are some before pictures.

I have been feeling a shift and pull back to my old bohemian style and decided to give Colene a little makeover!  This weekend I switched out the curtains for a natural pallet with some rust orange browns and blue India influence pattern that I found on Ebay.  They were a discontinued Target Threshold brand.  I was going to shorten then but I actually like the length that they provide in the sleeping area.  Here are some after pictures.

I switched out the rug for a more boho style that would be easy to wipe down and then I also changed out the vintage sheet duvet cover with a India style tapestry duvet cover.  I found a few pillows and pillow covers at the thrift store and was all done with her makeover in about an hour.

I am debating on making a new set of cabinet pulls by decoupaging some boho style paper onto some wood pulls.  I am pretty thrilled with her new little makeover and hoping we can sneak in a little adventure before the weather gets super cold!

She made a pretty sweet little knitting nest yesterday!  The leaves in the neighborhood are amazing right now, the sun was shining, and I had a little cup of tea and was able to knit a few rows on my Midtown Cardigan!
