One little girl is getting the bedroom of her dreams in Laurel County all because of an essay she wrote in school.

The PTO at Hunter Hills Elementary along with donations from Lowes and Kemper Furniture made it all possible.

It is something one mother of seven in Laurel County never thought would happen for her 10-year-old little girl.

Annie Miller encouraged her daughter Marissa to write an essay at school that could win her a bedroom makeover which is something Marissa has always dreamed of.

"I really wanted this my whole life, and I never got it done," said Marissa Miller.

Now, as the winner of the essay contest, Marissa is all smiles and her mother could not be prouder.

"I told her it was one in a million chances of winning it, but she did and it tickled me to death," said Annie Miller.

New paint and furniture equals one happy girl thankful for those making her dream a reality.

"I want to thank them because it's really hard work to do that, and I am so excited about them," said Marissa.

Marissa's mother says the experience has been a lesson for the whole family proving hard work pays off.

"I guess everybody deserves a chance at something. It will make her strive that much harder and make her work that much harder for things knowing she can work and get something out of it," said Annie.

The makeover has been in the works for the last two days, and Marissa is tickled pink watching the progress.

Marissa's mother says the makeover has helped the progress of remodeling her home checking one room off her list.

Those working on the project say they are putting the finishing touches on Marissa's room tomorrow.
