If this video doesn’t leave you smiling at a time like this …

Kevin is a single dad with two young kids, 11-year-old Declan and 7-year-old Rachel.

“The kids live with me half the week,” Kevin told Newsflare. “We don’t have that much and I struggle to give them any treats or nice things as money is tight.”

The hardworking father, who lives in East Kilbride, Scotland, shared the cutest video on Twitter. He uploaded it after spending a whole week turning his children’s modest bedroom into a happy, comfortable haven.

Up until this point, their bedroom used to be pretty barren, with plain metal bunk beds and little personality.

Kevin could tell they were unhappy even though they never, ever complained. Kevin wanted nothing more than to give them the room he felt they deserved.

“Didn’t have a lot of extra money to spend but what I could spare I tried to make it go far,” he said. He took the money he had saved up to make some updates to the room.

He decided to film the big reveal so he could send it to the kids’ mother, but thankfully he ended up sharing it with the world.

Kevin says his kids couldn’t be happier with their brand-new space. And the makeover couldn’t have come at a better time!
