For a king & a fairy princess

My last post got me a bit motivated to move things along another step in the kids bedroom. Actually it was less that, than the fact Miss E’s feet were hanging over the end of her toddler bed – a sure sign she was ready for a “proper big bed”!

So the last couple of weekends have been about furniture shuffling and a little shelf install. Fun times!

And version 4.6 of the kids room is…. here! And today it is tidy, which is as good as you’ll ever get from me. Styling to perfection is not going to happen despite my best intentions. So that creepy dark thing on the wall? It’s not a giant bug – it’s a peacock feather which looks perfectly charming in reality, it just doesn’t photograph well (or look particularly harmless in the middle of the night!).

Here’s how it looks from the lofty heights of King W’s bed (a bit scary to be honest when I’m up there making the bed, but he’s fine with it!):

And here’s my little fairy princess doing her best to untidy the room (which I totally am ok with because it tells me she loves hanging out in here!), and she’s super excited that Version 4.7 gets underway tomorrow with a “princess bed” pick up planned.

0925_7105Let’s hope she can hold that excitement for a while, because Mum’s gone and bought yet another thing that requires some Daddy DIY to get it functional. Stand by kings and princesses!

    Looks amazing Jolene! Love how you’ve made use of the space. Just in the middle of renovating our house. Next on the list is a new coat of paint for the exterior. Just wondering if you (or anyone else on here) know of any good painters in Auckland? Thanks

      Hi Cindy, thanks the kids room is one of my favourite spaces in our house! We had someone paint our exterior (way too big a job at the rate we work!) – his name was Nick, he just worked independently, and he was very cheap, but a couple of years on and I wouldn’t overly recommend him. His prep wasn’t fabulous so some areas need redoing already. Sorry I can’t help further. If you’re on Neighbourly that’s a good place to get local recommendations. Jolene
