A 14-year-old person bought a 1974 camper and fixed it up. When I saw the inside, I was amazed and couldn’t find words to describe it.

When summer break arrives, many students are unsure how to spend their free time. Some teens find jobs, others go to camp, or take trips with their families.

But 14-year-old Ellie Yeater from West Virginia had a clear plan for her summer. She wanted to fulfill her dream of turning an old camper into a cool hangout spot for her and her friends.

And guess what? The final result is so amazing that this girl deserves all the praise in the world!

In 2016, when Ellie Yeater was 14 years old, she decided to fix up a camper from 1974. She used money she got for her birthday to pay for it and transformed it into a lovely space that she could call her own.

Making the inside look good was going to be a big task. All the furniture inside the camper was the same as it was in the 1970s and needed a complete makeover. Elli’s mom, Lori, said, “It needed a lot of work, a whole lot.”

Ellie was excited to start working on her dream project, so she began by cleaning and fixing the floors. Luckily, her dad and brother, who are really good at renovating, were there to support and guide her throughout the process.

Once Ellie cleaned the floors and fixed any damage, it was time to make the camper look pretty. The first thing she wanted to change was the color. She wanted it to reflect her own style, so she painted it with a bright and beautiful blue color called “mystic sea.”

Now, it was time to tackle the inside.

Ellie painted it a peachy color and accented it with aqua blue.

Ellie also laid down a brand new floor.

Gone were the old tiles from the 70s, and in were fresh, new wood-patterned ones.

Now, it was time for Ellie to bring in decorations.

At this point, even Ellie’s grandmother got involved, sewing curtains, towels, and pillow cases.

In the space of one summer, Ellie turned the camper into her own private getaway — and it’s barely recognizable in the before and after pictures.

Isn’t it impressive that a 14-year-old was able to pull off this project? Impressive!

While she was working on the project, Ellie got advice and guidance from her loved ones, who wanted to help her with her summer project.

And of course, they had a standing invitation to visit her in her camper.

“I have never told her that she couldn’t do anything. She has always been an out-of-the-box thinker. I don’t want her to ever feel she has to color inside the lines. I want her to color the entire page!” says Ellie’s mom, Lori.

Talk about doing something constructive over summer vacation! Awesome job, Ellie!
