Before we moved in to our current home we renovated it, every room other than the kitchen which we did whilst living here (never again) had a complete overhaul. Our bedroom which I will show you in another post is exactly how I wanted it, and the boys room seemed brilliant to begin with. However they are outgrowing their room and so we need to do a big bedroom makeover and move!
The main problem with their room, is that they have bunk beds, which Fin is outgrowing quickly. I’m pretty sure he won’t be able to sit up in his bed properly in the near future, so now they need separate beds. We didn’t really think of this when we allocated bedrooms, as our room is bigger than their room, hence why now we will need to swap rooms, and redecorate all over again. It’s a relief that we have a box room to move in to when the time comes to do it all!
I’ll be doing another post showing how the boys current room looks before it becomes our room…I’ll just need to force them to tidy it first. I may even add a photo in to this post at some point, once their bedroom has been decontaminated yet again!
I have no idea how they can make so much mess in such a short space of time, but I’ve gone on strike with their room now, and they only get pocket money when they have a tidy room. It’s saving me a lot of money, and I’m pretty sure now the new Lego Xbox game Jurassic Park is out, their room will be sparkling soon.
I’m actually kind of excited about the room swap, despite all the work it will entail and I have started looking around for ideas of how to do their room and what to put in it. I have decided that it’s going to be blue themed with different shades, as I want it to be a room that will suit them when they get older as well, so I have told them that no they can’t have a Minecraft room!
Here’s a little mood board of some of my current ideas…even if I am banned from starting the swap until Si has finished doing the outside sheds (boo).
Number 1 is the bedding I like the look of from Very, number 2 is one of the great children’s beds from Room to Grow that I am really contemplating buying for both of them, number 3 is a Beanbag seat from Room to Grow, which I have to confess I have already bought… it’s a great size and so comfy (perfect footstool) that the boys may have to fight me for it when their room is done.
Number 4 is bedroom furniture from Next which I’m not really sure on, as we may go with white furniture to match the beds we want to get a little better, but I do really like it. Number 5 is wall art, also from Next and I think the boys would really like it and it’s just a bit different which I like! Now just to hurry Si up with the sheds….
Feel free to let me know of any cool blue coloured items you might know of for their bedroom, we have yet to work out what colour scheme ours will be, although I suspect light purple like our current one is, as I have a gorgeous lamp I don’t want to get rid of!
