pimp up my caravan

We got our caravan a few years ago, we put in a new carpet and did a few upkeeping jobs but last summer we thought about putting our stamp on it. We got excited about what we could do especially watching George Clarks Amazing Spaces.
 We got inspired! How do we want to change it? After looking into paint we discovered Annie Sloan. This was the answer to painting the wood cupboards. No preperation needed, just what I wanted. I was happy to paint but didnt want all the sanding that comes with it. Annie Sloan paint is AMAzing! You can paint it directly onto any surface with no preperation. Use wax to finish it off and thats it and the jobs done. Simple. It leaves it in a chalky matt finish which I really like. We got an off white and duck egg colour to paint our interior.

We also got the curtains remade with blackout lining. An improvement on the crushed velvet peach curtains! The seat cushions were recovered, phew so much better.

So are you ready for some pimped up pictures?
Lets do this!
