A 12-year-old boy from the south suburbs is enjoying a dream home makeover thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Connor Shells of Alsip has a heart condition that makes it difficult for him to walk.

He wished for his room to be redone in the image of an Apple Store. The redesigned room was created by HGTV's Kevin Grace.

Shells' mother, Kim Shells, was overwhelmed.

"This is wonderful - if Make a Wish can do this for my child, there are so many other children they can do this for," she said.

Shells' new bedroom was designed to reflect his personality and his favorite things, which include challenging his friends to video games and watching wrestling.
