Prankster Ashton Kutcher Completely Overwhelms His Mom With His Latest Trick

Happy Mother's Day!

Everyone has made their mom cry at least once. Hopefully, though, the tears look something like this.

When Ashton Kutcher decided he wanted to give his mom something special for her birthday, he had the perfect idea. He wanted to renovate the basement of her home that had served more as a man cave than a place for the family to spend time together.

"My mom has had a dream to finish this basement for years," Kutcher said. "And I have a plan to make that dream come true."

Enlisting the help of the home remodeling app Houzz and his stepfather Mark, Kutcher turned the basement of his childhood Iowa home into a beautiful space with hardwood floors, a space for his mom's antiques, a fireplace and open windows facing out onto their gorgeous Iowa property.

"I went to visit Ashton and the new baby, and they decided they needed me to stay out there for a little while to help," Diane, Ashton's mom said. "And I come home and this is what I find... It's just beautiful."


When Kutcher started, this is what his basement looked like:

Here is how it looked when he was finished:

Needless to say, his mom was stunned.

The surprise was the start of a new series called "My Houzz," where a video team will be following people as they surprise their loved ones with renovations they completed using the help of the app. You can check out the series here.

This is what a son's love for his mother looks like.
