The outpouring of love an support Gunner has received from our local community is astounding. A local youth church group offered to give Gunner a bedroom makeover. They took their time from their family during spring break to make Gunner’s bedroom makeover dreams a reality. The bedroom makeover results are absolutely amazing!
We built our house a few years back. Interior decorating has never been my strong suit. The builder painted the walls a neutral cream color. I thought I would eventually do Gunner’s bedroom in an outer space theme with rockets etc. Time has ran away from me so I was super excited when a local church offered to make Gunner’s bedroom more comfortable with a bedroom makeover. During spring break their youth group transformed Gunner’s bland bedroom into a Ohio State oasis! Please keep in mind, we literally live minutes from Baylor Stadium. Not one person from the youth group even mentioned the intense rivalry! The picture above and below show Gunner’s room prior to the bedroom makeover!
I pulled out his toys and bedding to help prior to the arrival of the church youth group for his bedroom makeover!
The church group sent us to a hotel overnight so we could relax while the transformed his room. This morning while the finished up, we were able to swim and then take a VIP tour of the newly built Baylor stadium. It was impressive! Then we drove back to our house for the unveiling of his finished Ohio State themed bedroom! Gunner’s face was amazing! The church group incorporated all Gunner’s favorite things including Sharko the shark, a gift from Gunny’s aunt Nicki when he was hospitalized after his diagnosis!
An Ohio State work table to build Legos on!
Massive storage bins for his Legos along with shelves to display his most recent Lego creations. His tv is now mounted on the wall for an interactive gaming experience when playing his Xbox One.
We are so thankful for the local church who put a wonderful smile on our son’s face. The local news came out to interview Gunner and filmed the process. Click here to view the video.
