This adorable pop-up camper’s owners painted the laminate cabinets with green chalk paint – no stripping, sanding, or priming. Read the story of their camper makeover here.
2. Leanne’s laminate transformation
These fake wood cabinets in this RV had been damaged in a fire. Read here about how the owners transformed them with aerosol canned spray paint.
3. Sarah’s RV remodel

4. Julie’s no-fuss makeover
Another no-prep cabinet makeover, these owners used a brand of paint called Nuvo cabinet paint for their wood and laminate cabinets. You can read more about their experience at their blog.
5. Eric & Katie’s two-tone cabinets
If you’re skeptical about the “no-prep” methods and prefer a more traditional approach, you can read the extremely detailed step-by-step description of how the owners of this motorhome sanded, primed, painted, and sealed their wood cabinets.
6. Meseidy’s camper overhaul
The owners of this fifth wheel achieved a similar look by using a paint sprayer to prime both their walls and cabinets before using a brush and roller to paint their cabinets. Instead of sanding, they rubbed all wood and faux wood surfaces with an acetone solvent. You can read the whole story here.
7. Heather’s kitchen makeover
In addition to painting the cabinets, this RV owner removed a dining booth and built a bar from some wood and a piece of countertop. B-I-N brand primer was used to help the paint adhere.
8. Tiffany’s two-tone cabinets
A deglosser was applied to these faux wood cabinets before they were primed and painted in Steely Gray by Sherwin Williams. Additionally, the owners painted the countertops using this countertop paint kit. Follow their blog to read more about their RV and get ideas for coastal decor.
