    Wow, what a spectacular job. You and Josee could always have a future in this if you needed too.
    Amazing!!!!

  3. Love your sprite! Looks awesome! Thanks for sharing your journey!

    1. Thanks Simone! I’ll be in touch soon to get one of those amazing custom paintings of it :)

  4. So cute! What an awesome transformation. I’m curious though… I don’t see a sink or stove… is there one?

    1. Hi Tania, thanks for liking it! There is a stove and sink, they are hidden under the faux marble tops under the cupboards. The tops come up so we can access them.

    Looks cute! Can you travel with it or is it just for a backyard? Looks like a hinge on the marble cabinet top? Does that hide a stove and/or a sink?

    1. Thanks Robin! We can travel with it, although we haven’t had a chance to yet since we just finished it , but hopefully before the summer is over :) and yes, the cabinet tops do hide a stove and a sink.

        Hope you get to make a trip soon and christen it for the road with a bottle of champagne (of course not when driving, haha!) :)

  6. This looks amazing, well done! My husband and I always talk about renovating an old camper but we are so afraid of getting in over our heads. What are some tips for finding a little camper like this that really only needs a facelift? Thank you!

    1. Thanks Meghan! Our biggest concern with buying a camper this old was water damage and rust. When we went to look at it back in December my husband crawled underneath to look for rust before we bought it. Also, it had recently passed inspection which was important to us since it meant it wasn’t sitting for a long time without being used. Inside we did find some water damage in one corner so we replaced a piece of the masonite and took a look at the framing while we had it open. I’m sure eventually we’ll need to do repairs but as of right now we don’t see any major issues.

  7. You did an amazing job on this! I love it! Did you replace the cabinets or paint them? What a remarkable transformation. Same question for the refrigerator.

    1. Thank you Tanya! We actually just painted them and added trim! you can see the post of that here:

      The refrigerator still worked so we just spray painted the exterior :)

  8. Hi Jolie! Where did you find that stunning clock?

    1. It’s beautiful isn’t it? it was given to us by my husband’s parents. I blogged about it here:

  9. Just wonderful. It could be a little guest house, too, at least in the summer!

    1. Thanks Barbara! it also makes a good dog house for the hubby :P

      1. I concur ;)

  10. Is the dinette table the original? I am looking for a table similar to that for my camper.

    Beautiful renovation!

    Thanks!

    1. It is the original, we just painted it white and added the faux marble adhesive paper to the top. Thanks for liking it!

  11. this looks great! thank you for sharing – do you have any pictures on how the table folds down and how the bed would come together? I am trying to figure out how to make that happen for my trailer.
    thanks

    1. Thanks for liking it! I didn’t take any pictures of the bed but I am planning on posting a quick video soon of the exterior/interior and I can include a clip of how the bed is set-up. Basically there are two brackets on the wall that the dining table fits into and when you are ready to make the bed you just unhook the dining table from the wall and it fits perfectly between the two seats.

      1. thank you – that makes sense – I look forward to seeing the video

  12. I looove it! Greetings from germany!

    1. Thanks Julia!! Greetings from Canada :)

  13. This is ADORABLE!!! Honestly, it’s the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. I’m now hunting for my own vintage Sprite so I can have one, too! Did you freehand the scalloped edge, or did you have some kind of template to follow? Great job!!

    1. Hi Sherri, thank you so much! We actually just used a bowl to make the scallops :) It was super easy and quick! Good luck on your quest to find a Sprite. We love ours :)

  14. All I can say is WOW! that is very well done! I love it!

    1. Thank you so much :)

  15. So fun to see your “new” little Sprite – inside and out! It is so very similar to my 1974 Canadian EEE – the floor plan anyway. You did a wonderful job bringing her back to her glory!

    1. Thanks Stephanie, and I would love to see a picture of your camper!

  16. So cute!! I want one!!!
