Now the boys are sharing again, their room really needed a bit of overdue TLC. I'm so pleased it is now finished. Just a quick makeover. Some much needed paint and a few added accessories.
The walls have been painted in the most delicious blue (British Paints I'm Blue). It was an easy choice with Tom and Bell both picking the same colour.
I stopped in at Briscoe's on Monday with fingers crossed, hoping to get an identical duvet cover for George - thankfully there was one left and it was 60% off too, love it when that happens. It is part of the Poppiseed range.
My best find has been the stripe rug. The colours are a great match with the walls and curtains. At only $49.99 (from the Warehouse) it is a bargain. I can not believe the prices of some children's rugs/mats out there?! The lampshade (under $30) I found in Bunning's.
We will slowly fill up the wall with framed photos, finds, awards and the boys artwork. I think I will stick with white frames and add the occasional one off colour for a bit of colour pop.
I'm really happy with how it has turned out. A relatively cheap makeover. The Vineyard were happy to pay for the paint. I prepped the room and Mr H painted. I've put a lot of the boys toys away in clear plastic containers and will rotate them. I have left out their favourites and a few extras. They love the space and happily play in there. The large window which covers one entire wall lets in lots of sunlight.
Makes for a great boys room!
