Jill’s Pop Up Camper Makeover
Painting, on the other hand, was a nightmare. We initially used a deluxe white paint with primer already in it, and it just wasn’t covering the wood well. After four coats and a panic attack that I’d ruined our new pop up, I gave in and applied a coat of primer. That did the trick! After four coats of paint, one coat of primer, and then another coat of paint, I finally got coverage I could live with. Learn from my mistake! Don’t skip the primer even if it’s already in your fancy paint. 😛
Our goal in the purchase and renovation of our pop up was to create memories with our family, and even though we’ve only owned the Billy Joe for a couple months, we’ve already had amazing experiences. We even had nine family members cram into it to spend the night over the 4th of July. I’m so thankful for the great inspiration I found on The Pop Up Princess. Oh, and as for the must-have bathroom and oven? Neither have been used, but they’re GREAT for storage. 😉
What an amazing transformation, right? I’m so impressed with how Jill’s makeover turned out, and I love that she’s already had it out on several family adventures. That makes all the hard work worth it to me.
