Little Man's Bedroom Makeover

Inspiration, InteriorsKate Marsden

Well, it took some planning but the little man's room was finally finished ON his birthday (as promised 6 months ago!). I'm really pleased with how it's turned out and it was definitely worth the time and effort.

Here's a little before and during for you. The first image (top left) was taken on the day we moved in to the house nearly 7 years ago, and the second one was straight after we (or rather my parents!) decorated it in time for him to move out of the cot in our room into his own.

So (obviously) the lining paper didn't come off cleanly, and that meant more work - there's always something with old houses. The cupboard you can see in the top right picture was taken out to give him more space for his desk and little bits and bobs.

I, rather nervously, painted a mural on his wall (for his "mountain theme room") - it only took a day (albeit with three coats of paint) and I'm really pleased with how it turned out.

All paints are from Farrow & Ball - the green is Arsenic, the white is Great White

And then there was the amazing mural wallpaper (which I didn't put up myself!)...

We added shelves in the recess where the old cupboard used to be...

And then it was just a case of waiting for the carpet. Here are some shots of the finished room.
