You can bet Paul was watching the super bowl and cheering on the Bronco’s and his number one player Peyton!

The closet was reconfigured and the doors were removed to allow for much needed storage and easy access. A glass lighted cabinet was added to his bedroom to display Steven’s personally crafted Lego creations.

The focal point of Steven’s room was the Minecraft mural painted by the talented artist Ken from Crayon’s Gone Wild.

Simon’s Superhero Special Space

Simon is a very energetic 4 year old boy who has had heart issues since birth, he has already undergone several surgeries.

Simons Special SpaceSimon loves superhero’s. He enjoys making people laugh with his adorable sense of humor. Simon loves the color orange. We chose light grey for balance of the room.

We converted his closet for double sided hanging along with added shelves and bins to allow for better organization. We provide all new furniture including a desk for Simon. In addition, Simon loves to read so the volunteer team added shelves to create a reading nook and designed a cool tent with lights for the corner of his new bedroom.

Thanks everyone for your donation of time, talent and financial contributions for making Simon’s Super Hero room extra special. It was an amazing team of volunteers we couldn’t have done it without you! The Room Makeover was on January 23rd.
