In the spirit of never having anything finished, here’s a post about my smallest person’s room, nearly two years after his arrival in the world (so many more ideas, but no time/money). I’ve come to the conclusion that kids’ rooms are always evolving changing to meet their developing needs, which takes the pressure off things needing to be ‘done’.
You might notice that these photos are not all recent – the cot is at it’s highest tiny baby level, and there is still a changing mat in use. The cot is currently held together with cable ties as two kids climbing/shaking/playing and No More Nails has ceased to work in fixing the bars!
When he arrived, we used furniture we already had plus a few home made bits to make it economical (and personal).
We’ve since added bookshelves (my first go with the drill) and we’re gonna need some toy storage soon. His clothes and nappies are in the wonderful victorian built in wardrobe (not wide enough for grown ups) with the addition of a cheap as chips Ikea shower curtain tension rod for a hanging rail.
Next Ikea trip might involve a trip to the rug department for something bright and washable…
