Maiden Voyage...

I'm posting from Edinburg, VA right now as we wait for some assistance(see last photo).  I apologize for the poor quality of these pictures, I took them quickly yesterday before we left and my camera battery was dying(making my camera act funny).  
Ok, so this is the maiden voyage of the new camper. She is about 10ft longer than the old one and has a full bunkhouse for the kids.  She isn't my dream camper but she is so much better and roomier than the old one, and we got a super deal on her.
Of course I had to decorate her... I wanted some color without having to do a total makeover. So I went with bright apple green.  I'm so happy the manufacturer chose not to put the ugly wall paper border around the middle of the walls, makes adding decor so much easier.

Here is walking into the camper...
 To the right is the master bedroom. I changed out the curtains for thicker ones that I already had and added some wall decals to the headboard(they don't show up very well, but it says "always kiss me goodnight". The blanket on the foot of the bed is actually a nice green color, just looks off in the pic.
 Hung a goodwill find on the wall after I spray painted its frame.
 Looking into the left of the camper...I used the green spray paint to paint all the baskets and accessories that I found.
 Family room...I will eventually recover the cornice boards and sofa.
 Dining area and it's big enough for all of us to sit.
 I had to make some art...
 Took a lamp from the boy's room that they weren't using, matched perfectly.
 Took down the brown curtains and replaced them  with green ones.
 Added a mirror(which needs to go green too).
 The bathroom... I did in light butter yellow.

 Looking into the bunkhouse...
 Made a dishtowel into a wallhanging.
 Kids bunks... Made them all special camper pillow cases...

 I'll add some more camper pics as I take them.

Oh, and here is what we were waiting on.... I locked the keys in the van!   The guy just came and opened it up, so we are off to seem some caverns.

Have a great day,
