This post is going to be long one packed full of photo’s. This project is so close to being finished. It has taken a lot of hard work from my husband who single handedly did all of the work himself including the electrics.
We started off with one huge room which used as my mother in law’s bedroom. This room measured 20m2
Our plan was to divide the room the best we could into 12m2 for my mother in law and 6m2 for Vinnie the additional 2m2 would be a little walk in area with separate door ways and a wardrobe for Vinnie. The photo’s should explain. I’ll end the blog post with a short video too.
Once my mother in laws room was nearly finished and she was able to sleep comfortably in there we started to concentrate on Vinnies.
Here’s how it looks today. I will do a full in detail description of the furniture and where we bought it all from in another blog.
The beds are yet to be made I’m currently washing the bedding. The cling film on the ladder is to stop Vinnie climbing ;)
Now that Vinnie’s bedroom is nearly complete we aim to get him into it right after Christmas. Firstly we will do a few weeks of nap time in the room, some play times and just hang out read books and cuddle in there.
We want him to not only like the room ( which he does ) but to feel safe and comfortable in there too.
Still on the to do list.
One big picture needs hanging between the two wall lights on the blue wall.
Blind at the window needs to go up. (My sister will be brining them over from the UK for us)
Beds need making.
And his toys need to go in.
I’m really happy with how the whole room turned out. We went for the simple route allowing him to still have a window for the natural light and some radiator for the warmth without getting outside contractors in to the house to do the work for us. It was all about the budget.
And lastly a quick video so you can have a better idea of the plan and lay out.
