They had a small storage room in their son’s room that had been covered with the boy’s dresser for as long as he could remember. Well his parents had a special surprise for him and what they did is every kid’s dream. It has a tiny door leading to a 7’x12′ storage room that they weren’t using. They had the house for 2 years and their son was nearly two when they moved in. He had no idea anything other than a flat wall was behind the dresser. In reality though, there was an entire hidden room!
The “secret room” had linoleum on the floor and wood paneling on the walls. One wall had exposed wires and insulation. This room was certainly not fit for children so they decided to do some renovations.
You can see that this hidden room isn’t very fun or comfortable, let alone safe for kids.
It wasn’t a very pleasant site to say the least.
The boy had no idea anything was behind his dresser for 2 years.
They added a new light and finished the walls. They removed the wood paneling and painted with bright colors. They even added a wood floor in the “secret room”.
They fully decorated it with maps and games. This is now his very own personal play room. His reaction is priceless.
Sometime after his 3rd birthday, they decided that they would finish this for him as his 4th birthday present.
On his 4th birthday, their son woke up to a treasure map. He had to find clues around the house which eventually lead him to his dresser which he had to move.
His mom explains his reaction perfectly.
He needed a bit of help since it was “really, really hard”. Then he could see the door. “What do you see?” I asked. “That door there,” he declared.
Me: “What do you think we should do?”
The Boy: “I think we should peek inside it.”
Me: “What do you think is in there?”
The Boy: “Some treasure is in there.” He walked in wide eyed and asked, “Where is my birthday present?”
Me: “You are in your birthday present.”
The Boy: “What is it?”
Me: “It is a whole room.”
“A treasure room!” As he took it in, he got very excited and declared that he would show it to everyone.
I gave him the tour of the room. “Oh, this is pretty cool, mother.”
Then it really sank in. “A secret treasure room! I like this room so much,” he jumped up and down. “Thank you father and mother.”
Here’s the before and after pictures of this secret room.
This is definitely an amazing birthday present. This will be a gift that keeps on giving and their son will absolutely remember this for many, many years to come. If this family ever decides to move, they’ll have to find one that has a hidden room or this son will be sorely disappointed.
