No, it's not one of those home make over shows, but that's what it looks like.

Kaitlin Pillars from Fowlerville suffers from a brain disorder that causes many physical and mental problems including daily seizures. This weekend she's going to come home to a bit of a surprise, a brand new bedroom.

"A lot of people have given their free time to do this for us we really appreciate it," said Dorris Pillars, Kaitlin's mother. She said no one else in the family is allowed to see the room until it is finished.

The makeover is part of the Suite Dreams Project, a Michigan-based charity that redesigns bedrooms for chronically and terminally ill children.

Kaitlin's project was chosen out of several by Meijer, which is donating six thousand dollars to the new bedroom. Students from Michigan State University's interior design program are responsible for the project.
