For Years Their Parents Kept This Secret In Their Kid's Room - Until Now. Wait Until You See It
FaithTap Staff 10/27/2015
A lucky four year old boy got the best birthday present of his life when his awesome parents uncovered something hiding behind his dresser drawer.
Just An Ordinary Storage Room
The storage room adjacent to the young boy's bedroom sat empty and hidden for years. But as her son's son's 4th birthday approached, Sarah Goer knew the time was right to open his eyes to new world.
Where To Begin?
But, how could she create a room that every little boy dreams of? It was quite ugly in its current state. The ceiling needed a lot of work. It had a wide open gap, various wires poking out, and a single lonely bulb to light the entire room. What's a mother to do?
Out With The Old
Determined to get rid of the outdated wood paneling and curling linoleum floor, she hired a contractor named Steve to do the dirty work. He worked tirelessly every day to secretly transform the room while her son was at school.
The Transformation Begins
With newly installed drywall, gorgeous wood laminate flooring, a cute light fixture, and perfectly placed base molding, the room was starting to look better. The walls received a fresh coat of paint, with an accent wall splashed in dark blue for additional visual appeal.
Toys Of The Trade
But the space still needed to be filled with all the things a young boy needs to support his growing imagination. A small desk was added so he could write, draw, and create crafts. A spice rack from Ikea was cleverly converted into place to store note cards and stickers.
The World In His Eyes
A large world map was added to the accent wall, so he could learn about the different countries and cultures of the world, and pin mark all the places he wants to visit one day.
The Dream Stash
A box to hold his favorite toys and dress-up costumes was placed by the door. Mom also put a nice fluffy green rug and matching pillow on the floor to provide a comfy reading area.
The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe
Just like the famous children's book series The Chronicles of Narnia where a hidden door in an old wardrobe led to a fantasy world, what adventures would this door lead the birthday boy to?
To make his birthday present even more interesting, Mom left treasure hunt clues around the house that finally led him to the secret door. When he discovered what lay beyond, he excitedly jumped up and down, exclaiming:
“A secret treasure room! I like this room so much.”
“Thank you father and mother.”
Sounds like we have a very excited and grateful little boy here.
Fairytale Ending To A Perfect Birthday
With a place to let his imagination run wild and a comfy spot for his dad to read him is favorite book, this little guy is living it up!
