So I suddenly realised that I never did do a post on Samuel’s finished room… Now i’m not sure if you guys are like me and it never will be totally finished but it’s pretty much there, and i wanted to share with you.
His feature wall was just so much fun to do, and we all love having a good rearrange to freshen it up or if something new arrives that we want to add. Pretty much everything here (bar the shelves and storage unit – Ikea) were bought small from shops found on IG,
I had originally wanted a blackboard wall, but hubby was dead against as black is the hardest colour to get rid of, and I knew we’d want to change it at some point, so instead the bed wall lent itself perfectly to the amazing Superhero mask decals from V & C Designs, and then I had a large blackboard that we had in our kitchen previously, which sat perfectly under his bed.
Although I have to say I may be tempted to save up and replace the blackboard with this little beauty from super cool online retailer Diddle Tinkers…
How fab is that letter/number tower, and always good when they are educational too!
His chest of drawers was v basic and so i wanted to make it a little more stylish, i found these handles in B&Q for something ridiculous like 33p each or something ridiculous like that, but what a difference!
The Swab Design pegs are amazing, I really wanted to find something totally different for a hanging solution in Samuel’s room, with these we can hang his housecoat, his ipad, his blanket, pretty much whatever he fancies that night before going to bed to make sure it’s there for him in the morning!
The last wall in the room is where his TV will go when he is a big bit older (he has a DVD player for now – but that needs to go soon too!) However when we built the house we put all the points in so there was no wires or building works in the future, the problem being for now it leaves lots of jack points, sockets etc. in the middle of the wall, so what do you do? Deep edge canvases are the perfect solution (one of the main reasons i started using them) as they fit right over them, so not only do you cover them up, but you have an great piece of artwork to boot!
The only thing big left to do is to make him some custom curtains and bedding, which is a brand new project for Henry, Fred and Felicity... Samuel adores it and i love that the first thing he does when someone visits the house is to take them to his room to show them. That why I do what I do, and I want to show that all kids can have rooms they love, that don’t have to cost the earth (unless you want them too!).
What do you think guys, you like?
