Ashley Rice is a wife and mom of two with a passion for interior design.

While she works full-time as an accountant, she pursues her love for design and DIY projects as a hobby (you’ve gotta see their dreamy modern farmhouse on Instagram!). So when her parents purchased a small camper as they were getting ready to retire, she was more than happy to renovate it for them.

Today we’re taking a peek inside the small camper, a 2010 Sportsmen Classic, that she completely transformed last year. Let’s get to it!
