Army Wife Tackles Incredible Home Renovation Project While Husband Deployed: ‘It’s Truly Inspirational’

This army wife on TikTok remodeled her entire home while her husband was deployed, and viewers are amazed at the transformation!

TikToker Cori Bosco (@eastcoastdiy) is a military wife and self-taught home improvement and DIY virtuoso who documented her home improvement journey while her husband was deployed. One of Bosco’s videos features a montage of the home renovation project, and viewers are impressed with his building skills and generosity.

The clip opens with the words “3 more months until my husband comes home from the army,” typed over time-lapse footage of Bosco remodeling his closet.

In the next shot, Bosco shows viewers the finished closet, which includes floor-to-ceiling shelving on opposite sides of the room, a hanging chandelier, and blue-and-white print wallpaper.

However, Bosco does not stop there. A coffee bar is next on her list of home DIY projects. In the following images, she is installing dark blue cabinetry and a tile backsplash.

The result is a full-service coffee bar, complete with an espresso machine, Keurig, and various flavored syrups displayed in front of a white tiled backdrop.

After ticking coffee off her list, Bosco goes on her next adventure in which she moves the laundry room so that her four children can each have their own bedroom.

After an extensive assembly of measuring, drilling and fitting, Bosco opens the double teak doors to reveal the new utility room which is fully stocked and ready for use.

Bosco’s favorite renovation project is his new bathroom, which looks like it belongs in a spa. The bathroom makeover features a double sink vanity set against a blue tile clad wall in addition to a glass shower and private toilet area.

After building a ladder to access the loft space in the master bedroom, Bosco, still on a roll, transforms the kitchen into a culinary masterpiece straight out of a cooking show.

Bosco ends the video with footage of her renovating the fifth bedroom in her home, leaving her with 3 more projects to complete before her husband returns home after being deployed.

Viewers were impressed with Bosco’s renovation skills and selflessness for taking on such a big project to surprise her husband.

“I can’t wait to see his reaction and [for you to] welcome him into your home! Thank him for his service to me,” one user said.

“It’s really inspiring,” one TikToker complimented.

“I’m sure your husband must know he has a guardian. It’s absolutely stunning,” another viewer said.

Based on Bosco’s amazing work, her husband is going to be spoiled when he gets home.
