Brigitte the Glamavan

The Brief

A boho chic glamorous makeover for a sadly neglected 1970’s Abbey caravan.

The caravan required stripping out to reveal any damp. The addition of a Shower, water heater and cassette toilet. A double bed, vanity area, fitted cupboards and a new kitchen to include fridge, gas oven and hob. A seating/dining area for 2, occasionally 4, and an awning for outdoor seating.

 

The Project

After stripping out and revealing the areas that needed replacing, I redesigned the layout creating a permanent double bed with under storage and adjacent shower & WC. I also added a vanity unit with fitted cupboards. The original sink was salvaged and brass tap was added for a touch of glamour, to work alongside the Carrera marble effect worktops and splashback. A new fridge and oven were fitted with surrounding cupboards and drawers, as well as a flip up/down worktop for extra workspace.

The original seats and table remained, but I re-covered the seats in the same print as the wallpaper and used a gold hammered finish Formica on the original table. The flooring was overlaid with pine wood effect laminate boards.

The exterior was printed onto a vinyl in the same print as the wallpaper and the caravan was wrapped. I then added a bespoke retro style canopy awning to the exterior.
