Before and After

After several weeks of glorious weather, we have practically finished the interior of our 1980's yellow VW campervan. Here it is compared to the first pictures we took back in November and it's quite a transformation.

It's gone from a dark, stinky mess to a bright beautiful space. I've added a couple of finishing touches like bunting and other decorations and solar powered rainbow makers (little prisms that spin and scatter rainbows around).

(If you are looking to makeover your own camper, why not check out my shop where you can find a range of camper-inspired bunting, cushions and tea towels:

I've also decided that our now quite beautiful van needs a new name to match it's new look as Colonel Mustard doesn't seem to fit anymore. Any suggestions please let us know!


  1. Colonel Rainbow. You cant stop calling it The Colonel (can you?)

  2. The van looks great. Name ideas: chocks ahoy (just playing with the idea of shipping and getting away), run away van, mr Bo Jangles...

  3. Lovely redo! How about "Captain Smartypants"

  4. Fab re-do...luv it. Just bought Mercedes 1971 camper van myself and can't wait for road trip.

  5. Hello! Your van looks great. I was intrigued by your use of a foam mattress for the rock and roll bed as we are just embarking on doing ours. Was it memory foam? How hard was it to cut?
