Tour The Crafty Camper

The Crafty Camper - take the tour of this mobile DIY workshop!

Remember the Partridge Family bus?  When it came barreling down the highway, it could not be missed.

Well, The Crafty Camper is a bit like that …

minus the singing and velvet bellbottoms.

It’s Denise’s baby and she renovated this vintage, 1972 Shasta to it’s former glory days and debuted it at the Philadelphia Home Show.

She’ll be taking it on the road too – it’s a mobile DIY workshop – so give her a wave when she whizzes past you.

Here’s the room Denise designed – The Crafty Camper Mom Cave …

Cute oilcloth pillows - love the vintage camper!

All of the oilcloth – pillows, cushions and buntings – were whipped up by Modern June.

Oilcloth pillows and buntings - such a fun retro look!

Love the fun patterns on this oilcloth!

Floors were ripped out to make way for this.

Vintage camper renovation - love the floor!

Love the galvanized bucket sink.

  9. My grandma used to have an old camper like this, but it’s long gone now. It’s my dream to find one of these and make it over into my very own playhouse/workshop/mom cave/bar — you get my drift. Love this one. I hope she makes her way to NC some day. I may have to hitch a ride!

  10. Oh man, I dream of someday having a camper to fix up. So stinkin’ cute.

  11. yahoo! awesome! It was so fun to have you last weekend. Cheers to many more!

  12. What’s not too love?!? When are you heading to Boston??

  13. This camper is the bomb, from the oil cloth pillows to the firepit, and oh that color!! She did an amazing job.

  14. Now that is fantastic! all the colors and patterns. So many cute things to look at!

  15. So cute! We love to camp, and love this idea of a guest house in back yard. I would love for you to share at Bacon Time’s weekly friday linky.

  18. Cindy Dahlgren says:

    Absolutely adore this camper and what you’ve done with it! If I could have something like this, I would jump at it. This is so cool.

  19. amazing work!! I know I am a little late to the game, but just want to say KUDOS to you, you rock.

    I am currently renovating the same make and model and am hoping to do beadboard as well! Did you use vinyl beadboard panels, or plywood? Looks great.
