After a successful trip to Ikea in the new year, my ideas started coming together. I bought bedding. Then spent weeks finding new curtains, light shade, and cushions. But something was missing.
We needed colour! As most rooms in the house are calm neutral colours this was a big thing. I checked the tester pots already collected from other projects and found the ideal colour. Being a small room I was only going to use it on one wall, to keep a light an spacious feel.
A trip to Homebase provided a toybox, and the look was coming together. I allowed time in half term to move my son (bed and all) into his brothers room. Not to come back in till the look was finished.
So I get to work, with my helper wanting to take part in the surprise makeover for his brother. OR maybe it was to help get him back in his own room.
And my usual safe Magnolia on the rest of the walls.
New Ikea coloured photo frames.
Putting the bed back in place. We call it the baby bear bed as it is expandable and has only just been extended once.
The room coming together, car road rug in place, toybox made, fabric toy boxes in place, and a space for his garage.
Bedding on, and cushions placed and a car rug. Only his large white frame to put on the green feature wall.
Overwhelmed by the whole effect "cool, mommy" and "thank you for my room" were the only things he could say, although the beaming smile on his face spoke a thousand words.
