Monkey's Room Makeover!

After a fair few months of mulling it over and falling over all of Monkey's things, we decided we would revamp his room. 


Now before you get any high hopes, I am by no means a designer nor am I very patient with fiddly things... So if you pop round please don't look too closely at the handiwork, just take in the whole feel! 

I would like to add that I lost the battle with regards painting the inside of the closet in the same yellow as the book shelves... But I have the paint and Stud1 goes back to work soon.

I am proud to say that the whole revamp cost us less than $100 and a few choice swear words. Most of those swear words were from me as I used my torture sewing machine. 

But I bet you're yelling "Gosh darnit woman! Where the heck are the photos!??" 
Before:


After:
Poor forlorn Froggy! Too many books, so little time!
  
Bench seat and bookshelf. Touch lamps to read by.
Personalised alphabet chart on right.

Nana's cross stitch above the nook.

 Still to do: Paint chest of drawers, sort out the curtains and the bookshelf needs help :)

  1. That is so cool. If we were not in a rental, I would have loved to re-do my kids' rooms. I love the book nook - what a neat idea :-)
